Fear of Missing Out

29 May 201531 May 2015

Chaired by Berlin artist and theorist Hito Steyerl, this three-day event brings together leading international theorists, academics, social thinkers and artists to discuss postdigital anxieties and the social condition.

Using the year 2015 as a lens through which to view the early 21st century, Fear of Missing Out captures current debate and forecasts future possibilities for action and change, while acknowledging the complexities of historicising the present at the expense of the future.

Examining the progression and trajectory of technological, ecological and cultural advances, speakers from diverse disciplines will present on topics from Artificial Intelligence to the Anthropocene.

Participants include: Hito Steyerl (Chair), Karen Archey, Erika Balsom, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Helen Hester, Olia Lialina, Yuri Pattison, Laura Poitras (via satellite), Nina Power, Tony Prescott, Oleksiy Radynski, Eleanor Saitta, Ashkan Sepahvand, Linda Stupart, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, Judy Wajcman, McKenzie Wark, Women Inc. and a screening of work by Harun Farocki.

To coincide with this event, the ICA and BRITDOC present the 9/11 Trilogy and selected shorts by acclaimed filmmaker, journalist and artist Laura Poitras 27-30 May 2015. Poitras will be in conversation with Hito Steyerl on 30 May.
