STRP 2021: We All Are Asteroids
In the past 10 years, the so-called ‘Me Age’ has come to a grinding end. The flip side of this dominant individuality has become visible: a loss of connection and security, of the feeling of belonging and being part of something bigger. Loneliness is one of the major social problems of our time. While digital technologies and the Internet are connecting us worldwide, the technological revolution has also contributed to the sense that personal connection is crumbling. People of all ages indicate that they miss ‘real contact’, because an increasing part of our lives unfolds in the digital world. We are all looking for a new collective, while at the same time we want to monitor what our individual needs, limits and conditions are.
STRP invites all artists to come up with scenarios for the Post Anthropocene that trigger our imagination.
