PSYCH: Escape from Reality
Rounding off the programme is PSYCH: Escape from Reality, moderated by Swiss celebrity curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, presented by and featuring two famous guest speakers who will Zoom in from their permanent residence at Westpark Cemetery. The University of Johannesburg is at the forefront of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and artificial intelligence (AI). Through unique processes, the dead will be brought to life to present their papers and Obrist, in the form of a hologram, will moderate. This un-event is so advanced you would have to be in the Matrix to experience it. (Tickets are going at a steal, so why not buy two?)
