Essay, sentimental diary, and critical pamphlet, Techno Casa binds together the textual production originally composed for a series of eleven video works presented during 2013 through site-specific installations.
Through an all-encompassing stream of consciousness, Riccardo Benassi delivers a critical reflection on the impact of technology in our daily relation to space, and how technological devices have radically altered the structures for living and organizing the real, from architecture to politics and cultural production and consumption.
The complete video series has been screened for the Berlin premiere and book launch at KINOKLUB @ VW (VeneKlasen/Werner)
Techno Casa is the fifthh issue of the new book series Doormats published by Errant Bodies Press. The series aims at contributing to the now, addressing issues that are present and that demand presence.
