Under the negatively reparative banner «Un-like», a special series of events has been developed with Ed Atkins to coincide with his exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich. Artist talks, surrogate performances, scholarly presentations, literary interventions, philosophical debates and karaoke will seek to inquire after the technological and mediatized condition of so much contemporary life, love and death. Privileging an idiosyncratic and personal approach to such vast themes, «Un-like» will attest to something of the irrecuperable in collective and individuated experience; what and where the limits of our self-images are – and how our relationships might be extended rather than retarded by the objects that we interface with and through.

Privileging an idiosyncratic and personal approach to such vast themes, «Un-like» will attest to something
of the irrecuperable in experience of manifestly contemporary life and its innumerable mediating
and mediatising apparatuses. What and where are the limits of our self-imagery; how might
our relationships with one-another and the world at large, be extended rather than retarded by those
objects, devices and ideas that interpellate us?
