Emotions are the core of human experience. The international group exhibition "Real Feelings" explores the rapidly changing relationship between technology and emotion. Works by 20 artists are presented, ranging from interactive installations to artificial intelligence, animations, video installations or photography. They explore how today's technology represents, manipulates and changes our emotions. Several works will be newly produced for the context of "Real Feelings". An extensive program of events and educational activities accompanies the exhibition. More information at hek.ch
