FAMILY ROMANCE OR THE AUGMENTED REALITY, 2019
Ana Borralho & João Galante are fascinated by the new communication technologies, not so much because of the increasingly impressive capacities that these have, or because of the attraction that each new gadget creates, but because of the way in which these technologies are transforming age-old social models and relations at an alarming rate. Whereas, until the twentieth century, audio-visual devices were designed for mass consumption, in the new millennium the focus is now placed on each citizen and their idiosyncrasies. The mass use of individualised digital equipment in every area is creating ways of life in which the notion of the social body has imploded and almost disappeared.

Family Romance or The augmented reality looks at these symptoms through the use of recent technological devices. What are the psychic effects of extreme individualisation? Is the real world at risk of becoming lost in the virtual world? Together with a group of the local community members, Ana Borralho & João Galante invite us to explore a future that has already begun.
