You are warmly invited to the conversation between Heba Y. Amin and Anthony Downey taking place on the occasion of Amin's solo exhibition WHEN I SEE THE FUTURE, I CLOSE MY EYES: CHAPTER II at Zilberman | Berlin.
Broadening conversations about the future of image technologies, this conversation will discuss Heba Y. Amin’s solo show When I See the Future, I Close my Eyes, Chapter II and how the histories of image-making technologies define post-digital models of representation. Amin and Downey will explore the interdisciplinary relationship that exists between art practices and models of academic and critical research, neo-colonial violence, machinic vision, photography and colonial exploitation, data extraction, France’s nuclear experiments in Algeria, and a pyramid built by the Luftwaffe in al-Alamein (Egypt) to commemorate a WWII German fighter pilot.
The conversation will be held in English.
