Digital Body of the City | film screening and a discussion about the quarantine
Кінотеатр "Копернік", м. Львів, вул. Коперника, 9
For over six months of the quarantine, we have experienced many changes and emotional challenges. We had to multiple times rethink our attitudes to the developments around, and to adapt to a new environment that was either enforcing or relaxing the restrictions of everyday life. Technologies were an important tool for adaptation. Their seemingly invisible infrastructure that could distort or change the material space. On the one hand, it can compensate physical restrictions with staying or moving within the space, and thus offer some provisional freedom. On the other hand, the infrastructure is a tool for power over oneself.
Welcome to a joint film screening by directors Roman Bordun, Yarema Malashchuk, and Zhanna Ozirna, created in 2020 in response to a new reality.
After the screening, a discussion will take place about the role and meaning of technologies and infrastructure during the pandemic and under quarantine restrictions. Along with film authors, it will be moderated by a media and technologies researcher Taras Nazaruk, a sociologist Natalia Otrishchenko, and a historian Bohdan Shumylovych.
