Narrating Google

Writing workshop and lecture

Debate



How has Google affected cinema, literature, photography, and contemporary art? A writing workshop and lecture based on the experience of two writers, who have tackled the effects of the search engine on ways of narrating the world.


5.00 - 7.00 p.m.: Writing workshop, with Sergio Chejfec.


The Internet and its evolution through refined browsers and search and representation systems have changed our sensitivity towards things in general and the territory in particular. The cartography of the physical world has acquired an additional fold: that of its interactive representation. This workshop will discuss projects or narrative experiences that incorporate these new elements into their constructive criteria and the different postulations of reality that they imply.


Note: The workshop will be taught in Spanish.


7.30 - 8.30 p.m.: The screen in words: lecture-presentation of Crónica de viaje, with Jorge Carrión.


Based on his experience as the author of Crónica de viaje (Aristas Martínez, 2014), an artist’s book composed of supposed Google screens, Jorge Carrión will reflect on the ways the search engine has changed our ways of thinking and on how the art of our era has versioned, intervened, occupied, or simply represented it.
