At Art Basel in Miami Beach, Document Journal hosted two panels which explored different perspectives from around the globe to reveal the inner workings of society and technology.
The Future of Offline Media and Online Identities
Miami Beach may be known for countless art fairs like Art Basel in Miami Beach, NADA, Design Miami, and Untitled, and the infinite amount of parties each night that can take you well into the next morning. But, what may be less discussed, are the talks that seek to enlighten, educate, and provoke. For this year’s Art Basel, Document Journal curated a series of talks for Prada Mode, its three-day takeover of The Freehand Miami Beach, that included poolside lounging, drinks, a restaurant, and parties each night. The discussions showed different perspectives from around the globe to reveal the inner workings of society and technology.
On December 5, Document hosted the first talk, “Digital Exhaust: The Art of Data and Surveillance,” which probed the limits of human communication and its relation to human identity. Art in America associate editor Brian Droitcour moderated the discussion, which featured artists Lara Baladi, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, and Franco Mattes. by Ann Binlot
