Cyber Elf (performative lecture)

September 30

Arts Printing House, 19:00

Magda Szpecht is a young Polish director who has decided that it’s not a right time for art when the war in Ukraine broke out. Having set aside all her art projects and premieres under development, she became what is called a “cyber elf”. Magda is part of a virtual elven army – in order to get real facts through the endless stream of disinformation about what’s going on there, the group of anonymous soldiers virtually fight Russian trolls and propaganda. The pandemic has shown that our lives continue even when we are disembodied. Magda leads us to where the disembodied war is being waged, whereas both the war itself and its soldiers are real people.
