In this roundtable, exhibiting artists Jakub Jansa and Miri Segal, together with Lior Zalmanson, artist, academic and founder of Print Screen Festival, will discuss how digital media complicates relationships between what is considered real, and what is considered artificial, how it raises questions about hierarchy and power, and how it can inspire philosophical insight, particularly about death and ontology (the metaphysics of existence). This roundtable is being held as part of a series of events organized in conjunction with the exhibition “Stumbling Through the Uncanny Valley: Sculpture and Self in the Age of Computer Generated Imagery”.
The panel will be held in English and it is supported by the Czech Center, Tel Aviv.
