Florian Meisenberg, David Renggli
Why we expect more from technology and less from each other

Wentrup, Berlin, Germany

The exhibition’s title references the book by the American sociologist and MIT professor Sherry Turkle: “Alone together. Why we expect more from technology and less from each other” (Basic Books, 2011). At WENTRUP, works by the artists Verena Dengler, Florian Meisenberg, David Renggli and Gabriele de Santis address various aspects of the query posed by Turkle, here reprised within the context of artistic production, reception, and choice of medium. How do we position ourselves vis-à-vis the fluid boundaries between body and technology? How does the individual situate him or herself within a society whose credo, Turkle attests, is “sending is being”?
