ART x NDWTV Couch session

The world is broken, and demands radical reimagining. NDW Head of Ideas Arne Koefoed talks to exhibition maker/curator, activist and writer Ine Gevers and artist Thijs Biersteker who creates interactive awareness installations about the world’s most urgent issues today. About embracing tech as medium, and anthropomorphism as means to evolve. And how our power to adapt as society to face big challenges has been truly tested and proven to be ready to fix a broken system.
