A conference by Castello di Rivoli on the effects of screen-based activities during the COVID pandemic with a talk by Prof. Pasquinelli on the history of the notion of trauma.
The Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea presents a two-part online program of talks, conversations and artworks between 2020-2021, entitled Digital PTSD. The Practice of Art and Its Impact on Digital Trauma developed in the framework of the exhibition Espressioni. The Proposition.
It is counterintuitive, but Digital PTSD presents through an online platform a critique of the potential misuse of technologies. What are the traumatic consequences of the sudden increase in virtual activities in a period when spaces of aggregation, such as museums, are in lockdown? Digital PTSD invites to reflect on screen-based experience, the physical erosion of living matter, the transformation of life into big data and the new digital epistemic regime.
