People Suck But It’s OK Because Cats – why it is pretty much obvious to live riot not diet
Online Lecture Performance by Julia Nitschke
There is one universal truth about the internet: it’s 80% porn and 15% cats. And then there are more direct connections between these two components.
Julia Nitschke, performance artist from Bochum, opens her archive of feline images in a lecture combining cultural studies and fluffy, affective everyday knowledge. Like this she delves deep into the popular image worlds of the internet. This time with a special edition: Riot not Diet. It’s about solidarity, resistance and love, served up as political candy delivered directly from the internet.
You are warmly invited to bring your own favorite cat gif from the internet.
