***premium connection to the touch of the screens and surfaces ***
In an intimate spectacle, moderated by performance artist Georges Jacotey (Athens, GR), international internet and new media artists will present their works. Online. Live. Screened.
The Live- Online-Show plays with forms of presence and blurs the boundaries of digitality and physical presence to enable other forms of a present. In the second season of the Live- Online- Show, the issue of intimacy will experiment with artistic strategies of closeness, privacy and intensity, and questions about possible relationships are presented in the context of a post-digital society.
The second season of the live online show Gleam #02: Intimacy, a preview of the dgtl fmnsm Festival 2018 will be curated by Shawné Michaelain Holloway (US) and Georges Jacotey (GR)

is a French - of Guyanese and Danish descent - video artist, health-tech-politix practitioner, and Kemetic/ Kundalini Yoga teacher based in Johannesburg. Tabita’s practices unearth the possibilities of decolonial healing through the politics of technology. Navigating architectures of power - online and offline - her work tackles the pervasive matrix of coloniality and its affects on technology, sexuality, health and spirituality. Through screen interfaces and energy streams, her digital healing activism offers substitute readings to dominant narratives decentering occidental authority and preaches to dismantle our oppressive white-supremacist-patriarchal-cis-hetero-globalized world screen. Tabita is a founding member of the artist group NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and mother of the house of SENEB.
She is represented by the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg.

dgtl fmnsm- concept and impementation: Thomas Dumke / Ulla Heinrich / Konstanze Schütze
dgtl fmnsm is a future request for a more radical thinking of the implicitness of digital technologies in the media-culturally shaped present. dgtl fmnsm acts as a sensual interference and interruption of prevailing technical discourses and dominant narratives. Aesthetically and theoretically active people are involved in various interventions, making significant use of their bodies as a means of expression in the context of an elusive presence between digital technologies, network cultures and political necessity.
