Britta Thie. The Netflix-ication of Life & Digital Puberty
Roter Salon, Discourse, Performance, in English, 8/6 €
With: Britta Thie + Guest: Dan Bodan
Watching all these American TV shows, I feel like, when I speak English, I’m just copy-pasting dialogue. It’s like the Mimikry of the latest HBO-slang, the lines of my favourite streaming-starlet become mine, the voice over of my life.
I call that the “Netflix-ication of Life” – or the Soap-ification of the Self.
#TBT: Back in the day in the German small town we were listening to Millencolin and had crushes on boys wearing brown Lagwagon shirts which they bought ONLINE for heavy Deutsch Mark.
The Euro came a few years later, the coins were crisp and the modems still loud.
The Misseducation of Lauren Hill pushed our self esteem.
