Real Feelings

Real Feelings

Emotions and Technology

Emotions make us human and separate us from robots and machines. At least… That's what we've always thought. But is that still the case in 2021? Now that machines are getting smarter and can recognize emotions better and better, we can no longer ignore this question. Our heart rate, perspiration, speech, facial expressions and body language are tracked with trackers, sensors, apps and webcams that are playing an increasingly important role in our daily lives. Are our emotions still really ours? Or are they influenced by the technology around us?

These issues are now more important than ever, due to the adapted way of life we have discovered in the past year: meetings via Zoom, greeting each other without touching, working from home. Use the topics in the exhibition to reflect with your students on their experiences with online education and the way they relate to social distancing. Explore the possibilities and challenges of the collaboration between technology and humans, now and in the future.

Twenty international artists show their work in Real Feelings, on show at MU from 28 May till 12 September. We hope we’re able to receive groups again during this period. If this is not possible, you can always book a virtual tour.
