The talk was moderated by Francesco Urbano Ragazzi - a curatorial duo trained in ontology, gender and media studies whose main interest resides in investigating the narratives that inform the age of connectivity. After having organized two editions of the Internet Pavilion in the years 2011 and 2013, the team curated The Internet Saga, a solo show by avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas presented on the occasion of the Venice Biennale of Visual Arts (2015).
