IMPAKT Event: Affected Words 21 - 23 March 2019


Affected Words screening programme

What: A three-day screening programme curated by Maria Morata
When: 21-23 March

Focusing on the actual phenomena and tendencies of the digital, the selected works of Affected Words will explore how technology and language affect each other. This reflection upon language will critically question its use as an instrument to re-produce normative control, granting a blind authority to the speaking-emanating subject, and will bring to light the possibilities of language as a tool of emancipation and self-determination, which affirms individuality and potentially allows an equalitarian participation in the social system.
