Virtual Event

The 2021 Max Wasserman Forum: Another World  brings together artists, educators, and writers at the forefront of discourses on art in the digital realm to share their deep understandings and perspectives on digital media’s potential for more radical, imaginative, and limitless forms of cyber expressions. A series of two pre-recorded online panel discussions What are we Building?, and What are the Barriers?, will address questions such as: How do digital ecosystems shape our behaviors, values, and relationships? What strategies are employed by artists to bridge speculative ideas and in real life encounters? What are the extended or alternative experiences provided by artists that affect human consciousness? The Forum culminates with a captioned live stream closing address by Berlin-based filmmaker and visual artist Hito Steyerl on April 10.

Pre-recorded panel discussions will be made available online April 6-10, 2021.

Closing address and Q&A session live stream with Hito Steyerl takes place Saturday, April 10, 2021 at  3 PM EST. 

This program is free but registration is required.

Panel discussions will be closed captioned and a live transcription of the closing address will be provided with webcast.
