IMPORTANT MAGAZINE / ISSUE 2 / COVER BY MICHAEL HEMY & LUNE KUIPERS
ADVANCE OR REMAIN
The second issue of IMPORTANT MAGAZINE focuses on the body shapeshifting from physical entity to digital and back. In what realm do we belong (exist) and how do we navigate in the current landscape of the self vs onscreen identities? Are we changing, are we forgetting, how are we human and what does that mean exactly? How does the body survive and renew itself while its data are being harvested and invested in societies submerged in surveillance? Is the notion of the human itself transmuting, and how do we distinguish ourselves from the algorithms and the codes that are now producing, modifying and filtering our interactions with one another?
