Speakers at Het Nieuwe Instituut

On stage in Het Nieuwe Instituut, artists and designers Ying-Ting Shen and Yu-Ching Chiang will talk about their Enter Residency and journalist Süeda Isik (NRC) will talk about the growth of drug related meme accounts on social media.

Through a broadcast set up at Het Nieuwe Instituut visitors can watch the speakers from the other three locations (Waag, Impakt and MU). 

More information about the speakers at the other locations can be found on the website of The Hmm

The Hmm @ 4 locations

In 1964, Marshall McLuhan wrote about the concept of the global village and that "we have extended our central nervous system itself in a global embrace, abolishing both space and time as far as our planet is concerned." Almost sixty years later we are still asking how different forms of media can bring us together across time and space, and during this evening we want to explore just that. 

The idea for this hybrid format emerged during a conversation between The Hmm and live-ness researcher Esther Hammelburg, who questions the importance of being together in one place in order to create a sense of togetherness.
