“Contemporary art is at a standstill, and partially because of technology” Mohammad Salemy

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 turbid art market and an undemocratic exhibition circuit. A couple of pentitos wonder whether the urge for physical objects is really just a nostalgic fetishism.

In 2015, making selfies is part of the experience of visiting a museum. Digital technology has completely transformed the experience of art forever; #artoffline lets viewers decide what they think is good. But aren’t we losing something if the physical artwork disappears?

Followed by the director in conversation with invited guests.
