Critical Talk: What happened to the Hobby?

Collecting stamps is out; taking selfies is in. What has become of the classic hobbies in the wake of society’s digital transformation? What new hobby and amateur cultures owe their existence to the digital networking of the world? Sociologist Ueli Mäder and art theorist Erec Gellautz will discuss (in German) the interrelationship of hobby and hobbyist and the blurring of the line between work and leisure.

Included in the exhibition ticket price.
