Artist panel: David Haines, Juliet Jacques, Mahmoud Khaled & Marge Monko

Please join us on 28 August from 16:00 for a panel discussion with artists in the exhibition “Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies)” (Curated by Katerina Gregos), which explores the state of love and intimate relations in the age of the Internet, social media, neo-liberal capital and globalisation.


Artists David Haines, Juliet Jacques, Mahmoud Khaled and Marge Monko will introduce their projects in relation to some of the major questions raised by the exhibition: At a time of increasing alienation, individualism and loneliness – symptoms of our world’s increasingly urbanised, digitally networked lifestyles – the exhibition prompts us to think how we can we reclaim meaningful relationships and unconditional love as a potent emotional force and intense psychological bond between people that gives meaning to our lives in ways that no other interaction, ‘object’ or experience can? How can love be rescued from the claws of capital and the corporate technosphere?


The panel is moderated by Tallinn Art Hall curator Corina L. Apostol.
