Lauren McCarthy presents Future Station: Future Family on Thursday 20th September 2018

Lauren McCarthy is an artist based in Los Angeles whose work examines how issues of surveillance, automation, and network culture affect our social relationships. At this Future Station she will be exploring the future of family.

How do rapidly expanding technological possibilities and shifting understandings of gender, sexuality, identity, and intelligence shape the ways in which we think about family? What new family issues arise in the face of new reproductive technologies and gene editing techniques, care work and the gig economy, family surveillance and home automation?

This presentation will reflect on current activities related to future family, discuss some of Lauren’s previous works on themes of AI and labour, surveillance and social technologies, and put forward some of her ideas for future projects.
