7:00 pm

Country: Germany

Title: TRUE YOU (we know how you feel)

Type: Performance

Location: Jordan National Gallery Park

Date: 24 October 2019


Doublelucky productions are interested in the invisible infrastructures that define our world: from high frequency trading to smartphone monitoring social media bots. They like to use the theatre space for making these invisible digital architectures visible and tangible. The Berlin based group has been developing performances and video installations since 2004. They toured nationally and internationally, they have been awarded numerous prizes, e.g. The Goethe-Institute Prize.




New machines not only want to know where we are, what we purchase, and how many steps we take a day, but also how we feel. When we are emotional, we are focused entirely on ourselves: in our affects, our true selves are revealed. Voice analysis, micro expression analysis, visualizing brain waves are valid methods of so-called “affective computing” to read the truth from the body, making the latest software operate like lie detectors.

In their lecture performance, the artist collective doublelucky productions explores this development of artistic intelligence in the tradition of polygraphs back to medieval divine judgment and looks into a future in which everyone carries a smart truth-finding machine in their trouser pocket.
