ACT lecturer, Lara Baladi will take part in Anxious to Act, part of Conversation Piece Transmediale Berlin this February.

On Saturday, February 6, Baladi will participate in the Hybrid event, Five Years After moderated by Oliver Lerone Schultz. Following the panel, Baladi will take part in Tactical Media and the Archive, a workshop, moderated by David Garcia and Eric Kluitenberg.

Under the name Conversation Piece, transmediale reboots the format of the post-digital culture event, creating a transitory space for discussion of the anxieties of late capitalism. Rather than a single-themed festival with separate exhibition and program sections, artistic and research practice will unfold live through discussions, workshops, temporary installations, performances, and various hybrid formats. Through the thematic streams that function as conversation starters, Anxious to Act, Anxious to Make, Anxious to Share, and Anxious to Secure, the Conversation Piece creates an occasion to reflect upon past transmediale themes while resolutely focusing on the ambiguity of present digital culture.
