The Hairs Of Your Head Are Numbered

Part of the focus “Spy on Me”

Performance

German / English / 

The human body is  increasingly encountered as a data body. Movements, emotions and states are measured, quantified and transformed into data. At the same time this data is the mirror in which the body is reflected and is also its point of orientation. While a growing number of people enjoy using ‘life tracking’ to monitor and track their bodies and share on social media, companies offer online analyses of emotional states for therapy and advertising purposes. If until recently the human being was the analogue gap in the digital world, this gap is being rapidly closed with our enthusiastic help. In their new performance the media arts team turns the body into a numeric spectacle. The new needs and the possibilities of manipulating the body become perceptible in the digital enhancement.

After the performance on 19 January: Artist Talk with Nishant Shah, Chris Kondek and Christiane Kühl
