In the context of the exhibition "Harun Farocki. Empathy", Hito Steyerl will give an insightful presentation on video games, virtual simulations and the “generative fiction of autonomy”.

Berlin-based Hito Steyerl (Munich, 1966) is one of the most critically acclaimed artists working in the field of video, today. On the fence between cinema and the visual arts, her work spans reflections on globalization, image production and dissemination as well as the influence of technology on our daily life.

Once a student and close collaborator of the late German filmmaker Harun Farocki, she will give an insightful presentation on video games, virtual simulations and the “generative fiction of autonomy”.
