Post-digital intimacy is an art exhibition inspired by the challenging situation of the coronavirus pandemic, endless Zoom meetings and lectures, FaceTime dates, and the surroundings of smart devices. The installation runs from November 2021 to July 2022 at one of the aesthetic buildings of the National Gallery in Prague, the Trade Palace.

Don’t miss the intersection of high-end technology and art through the prism of virtual reality. 

Concept 

The exhibition consists of art projects by nine different contemporary artists from all over the world. You may have heard of them or not. They may be well-known worldwide or just emerging as stars in the modern art world. Who knows? 

The insights of the exhibitions are presented in the faces of Darja Bajagić, Ivana Bašić, Louisa Gagliardi, Lola Gonzàlez, Daiga Grantina, Rachel Maclean, Pakui Hardware, Viktor Timofeev, and Tenant of Culture. The installation’s curator is Michal Novotný, adding a special touch.

The idea behind Post-digital Intimacy 

It is not a secret to anyone that the smart devices we use every day have surrounded us. In particular, the effect of technology on the human mind was noticed most vividly in the first wave of pandemics in March 2020. 

The touchscreen is something without which we could not imagine our lives. We fell asleep next to it, surfing the Internet, watching Netflix, or checking out endless social media pages. What happened to our private lives and intimacy? Has it entirely transferred to an online format? 

These were the artists’ primary concerns with the concept of technological interrogation in private lives. Furthermore, they firmly believe that ‘technology has infiltrated our privacy.’ Honestly, we cannot deny it as it is the truth of our reality 

An exhibition in a nutshell 

So, what should you expect from the exhibition? That’s the secret you will never know… 

With the help of virtual experience, you will get the opportunity to travel through artists’ perceptions and get an insight into their work. Perhaps, we will discover something similar to the dystopian sci-fi novel “1984” by George Orwell or something futuristic with interconnections. 

The exhibition will show you intimacy from a different angle, considering close relations, issues of today’s society, and technology’s effect on the human body and mind. 

Admission tickets can be found on the official website of the National Prague Gallery!
