Vivere Onlife

The schedule of appointments for the Modenese event starts again. The new cycle is dedicated to the continuous hybridization between real and virtual, a theme at the center of the conversations between experts in live streaming

The third appointment, the summer one, opens on Friday 4 June and continues until Sunday 13 June and its theme is the Onlife condition, the hybridization between real and virtual in which we are all immersed. The third season includes virtual appointments (conversations and debates) and live experiences, reserved for an audience in presence albeit with limited numbers (it is possible to book on the website, by clicking on the individual Experiences within the program macrosection).

The streaming events are visible live on the Ago website; the debut panel of the third season, Ethereal bodies, digital bodies (with the philosopher Michela Marzano, the artistic director of Aterballetto Gigi Cristoforetti and the co-founder of Re: Lab Roberto Montanari) is scheduled for Friday 4 June at 18:00, and is also visible on the Wired website, at the top of this page.

The live streaming conversations will investigate issues such as zoom fatigue (with reporter Lisa Iotti and media expert Geert Lovink, Wednesday 9 June); digital that changes the way of doing journalism (with journalist and researcher Philip Di Salvo and Columbia University academic Anya Schiffrin, Friday 11 June); the social and biological repercussions of life on life (with the neuroscientist Alessandro Zocchi, the sociologist Giovanni Boccia Artieri, the pedagogist Maria Ranieri).

And then again the risks of continuous surveillance, in an era where privacy has become a subordinate right to often questionable priorities (with digital rights expert Laura Carrer and artist Paolo Cirio, Saturday 12 June); the change in production and use in music in the digital age (with the musicians Emiliano Colasanti and Corrado Nuccini, Sunday 13 June). The dates change but not the time: always 6:00 pm.

But what does Onlife mean, the leitmotif of the third season and the conversation at the center of the Ago Modena events? Also thanks to the acceleration of the pandemic, the barriers between online and offline have disappeared completely: online we can, and sometimes must, work, converse, study, take advantage of cultural products, meet people, start relationships, get information. It is not surprising then that the onlife existential condition has become predominant, in the wake of a change that was still taking place.

As early as 2014, The Onlife Manifesto - Being Human in a Hyperconnected Era, a work of research (led by the philosopher Luciano Floridi) which investigated how the very strong and pervasive influence of information and communication technologies generated profound transformations, capable of questioning some consolidated paradigms. Hence the blurring of the distinction between real and virtual but also that between human being, machine and nature; and then the excess of information, the primacy of interactions on subjects and, therefore, the admission that the existing conceptual tools are not sufficient to fully understand the consequences, at various levels, of such a computational impact.

A reflection, that on life on life, is even more urgent in a season where many processes are being rewritten and it is not known what structure the future will have in the various fields, from work to social contacts.

Hybridization between ways of perceiving and enjoying is also enhanced by the Modenese event which, with its appointments, aims to promote encounters between disciplines and methods of use, without neglecting the local component of the proposal, with references to places, institutions and cornerstones of the city's cultural heritage. This is the case of the dance show, live, Meridiana, which will not only be re-proposed to viewers also in virtual reality mode (to broaden the perceptual spectrum) but will be the subject of philosophical reinterpretation, for a comparison on the subject of the vulnerability of bodies in the first panel Ethereal bodies, digital bodies, indeed (Meridiana is scheduled for Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June, in presence, at several times at the historic Pharmacy of the former Sant'Agostino hospital).

Same approach also for Grida tra the walls, a theatricalization, on stage on 12 and 13 June, of the Estense Gridario, a corpus of the modern era composed of 5 thousand rules, which, physically, is present in the State Archives of Modena, but which is digitally present in the library Lodovico. The digitization project of the vast corpus of cries is also at the center of the meeting, in streaming, with the archivists Annalisa Sabattini and Lorenza Iannacci and the historian of law and scientific manager Elio Tavilla.
