IMPAKT TV episode #25: Saturday 20:30
Location: IMPAKT TV from Koepelzaal
Did you miss the panel with Kelli van der Waals, Lilian Stolk, Dries Verhoeven and Linda Duits? Rewatch The Language of Love (on the Internet) during this IMPAKT TV episode.
The way we communicate with one another is strongly rooted in conventions that are supposed to make it easy for us to understand each other. They help us avoid awkward moments, tell us how to behave and what is appropriate in a letter, an email or phone call. New media challenges these conventions and new implicit and explicit rules are constantly forming and transforming. What are the latest trends when it comes to your profile picture? Is it okay to break up with a partner via text? What’s an absolute no-no on a dating app? How should we see phenomena like sexting?
This episode is hosted by Friso Wiersum.

He has received various prizes including the Mont Blanc Young Directors Award at the Salzburger Festspiele.
