Conversations | Arist Talk | Oh the Humanity!
Artist Cécile B. Evans discusses her practice with Susanne Pfeffer, director of the Museum Fridericianum and curator of the German pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale. This talk, titled after Herbert Oglevee’s historic 1937 quote on the Hindenburg disaster, considers man’s relationship to technology. In her work, Evans examines the influence of technologies on human beings and how the contemporary human condition is shaped by the person-to-machine exchange. Evans will expand on her current projects, the burning questions she is dealing with in her work, and her visions for the future.
