The Culture & Technology Podcast

Art’s Role in Our New Extended Reality

What if technology could help us transcend the limits of our own brains and bodies, and connect us to the experiences of other living beings? That’s precisely what artist Barnaby Steel and his studio Marshmallow Laser Feast invite you to do through their multisensory installations and virtual reality interfaces.

For Episode 2 of the Culture and Technology Podcast, Eva Fischer, curator and initiator of CIVA Vienna’s new media art festival, talks to Barney about how VR can help us to reconnect with the world beyond our filter bubbles.

The Relationship Between Culture and Technology

What feelings does technology evoke? Thanks to pop culture, Hollywood, and the media, technological narratives tend to swing between the utopic or dystopic – the glorious or the terrifying.

For Episode 1 of The Culture and Technology Podcast, we invite Professor of Anthropology Shannon Mattern and media theorist and curator Paul Feigelfeld to deconstruct the concept and explore its intersections with culture.

Introducing the Culture and Technology Podcast

The Culture and Technology Podcast explores how technology is rewiring the future of cultural production and experiences.

Host Severin Matusek has spent the last decade researching how technology transforms culture, communities and society. In this virtual salon, together with Vienna's Business Agency, he brings together Vienna’s creative thinkers with international experts to offer insights into the way culture is changing – and the new communities, spaces and experiences emerging along the way.

About this podcast

How is technology changing culture? From exhibition design to the performing arts, we invite leading curators, researchers, artists and cultural experts to explore how technology is shaping the future of cultural experiences and sparking new opportunities in the process.

The Culture & Technology Podcast is a virtual salon — hosted by the Vienna Business Agency together with Severin Matusek. Each conversation pairs Viennese creatives with an international expert to discuss a topic, entertain a thought and share their knowledge through conversation. 

The future of cultural experiences is up to us to create. We hope you’ll join us by subscribing to The Culture and Technology Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts.
