Discussion between Kajsa Dahlberg and Khalil Joreige reflecting on their exhibitions at huntkastner and tranzitdisplay, focusing on issues of fragile temporalities of analog and digital media, their anchoring in specific periodic contexts and modes of overcoming such barriers. Dahlberg will present her new long-term archiving project of mental and physical movements in the internet environment preserved on 16mm film, which she inaugurated in her exhibition “In My Sight, Every Day; In My Hands, Every Day" in Prague. Joreige will shed light on the context of research of spam e-mails in relation to their historical predecessor, the so-called “Jerusalem Letter”. Joreige had worked on this research project together with Joana Hadjithomas since the late ‘90s, and presented their findings in the exhibition “I Must First Apologise…” and in the book “The Rumours of the World: Rethinking Trust in the Age of the Internet”.
The talk will be mediated by the curator Jen Kratochvil.
