:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN / AR) ::
The seemingly irreversible changes which have occurred since the emergence of the pandemic also manifest themselves via dramatic transformations: a highly polarized and stigmatised ONLINE version of the world being fed to each & every one of the “former” world citizens, web wanderers, and newcomers who are forces to learn / do every little aspect of life via virtual communications, while many are pushed to peripheries and darker areas and not everyone affords to stay connected. The digital divide didn't start yesterday neither the inequalities caused by limiting access, a peculiar subversion & distortions which owe their existence to the speed & technological void on one hand and manipulation of the public mind. Present Tense tries to shed light on a generation that is difficult to define, thus often harshly targeted internationally; A generation who seeks to present and execute their independence to experiment in significant ways, while preserving the right to be invisible.
