#artoffline

By Manuel Correa

Synopsis

What happens to art in the Internet age? The philosophers, artists and exhibition makers in this documentary believe that endless reproduction liberates art from a muddled art market and an undemocratic exhibition circuit. Many wonder whether the urge for physical objects is really just a nostalgic fetishism. In contemporary times, taking selfies is part of the experience of visiting a museum. Digital technology has completely transformed the experience of art; #artoffline lets viewers decide what they think is good. But are we losing something if and when physical artwork disappears?
