Presentation | September 23 | 6:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

In her talk, artist Marisa Morán Jahn weaves together her interest in creative technology as myth-making and her practice of co-designing with and for historically underserved communities (specifically low-wage workers, immigrants, youth, and women). She draws from her background as an artist working across media—sculpture, film, journalism, interactive media, performance, photography—to probe questions such as: Why are agonistic approaches to technology essential in building tolerance? How can we shift frameworks in order to best understand how people are actually using creative technology? How can creative technology be used in movement building?
