14.09–10.10.2022: Museum of Technology, Berlin, DE
How do people react to crises, and what role does digital technology play in this?
“Everything Will Be Fine” is an outdoor exhibition by the Berlin-based NGO Tactical Tech in co-production with HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Visitors are invited to enter a unique inflatable structure and follow self-chosen paths to reflect on their own reactions to our mounting planetary crises. From ambitious technological approaches, such as digital twins of the planet, to the spread of conspiracy theories online, digital technologies are seen as both solutions for and amplifiers of our perma-crisis. The experience asks, in what ways are technologies the lens through which we can witness, investigate and explain our own reactions to crisis, and the reactions of others?
The exhibition will be held in the forecourt of the Deutsches Technikmuseum and installed in a structure designed by Czech architects Kogaa, presenting the work of over 20 international artists like Paolo Cirio, Marjolijn Dijkman, Disnovation.org, Vladan Joler, Egor Kraft, Agnieszka Kurant, Sybille Neumeyer, Liam Young and others and creating a space for reflection, interaction and discussion. Visitors will be encouraged to examine their personal responses to crisis – from fight or flight to fix or freeze. The exhibition will also feature a full programme of events including tours, workshops and more.
