Unsound 2021: dəəp authentic

The pandemic has left us isolated and atomised, yet also more virtually connected than ever. Relationships, money, art and governance are contained inside our laptops and on digital tokens. Social bubbles spawn speculative ones, and vice versa. As parts of the world begin to transition into a new phase, in which many are vaccinated, our year-plus-long immersion in virtual living is raising new questions. The theme of Unsound 2021, which takes place between October 13th and 17th, is dəəp authentic—our response to a hyperreal situation.

dəəp authentic also refers to the gradual shift back from online to IRL events, a phrase that involves a questionable binary—for the online world is also ‘real’, and the IRL has long been digitised, distributed and mediated.
