Back to overview

In this podcast, accompanying the exhibition The World in My Hand, we explore the question of how the smartphone has changed our world: our relationships, our love life, our identity. We trace the origins of the smartphone: what were the beginnings, but also: where do important raw materials for the smartphone actually come from? We look through the touchscreen into another world and ask how the smartphone has changed art. In each episode, artists from the exhibition and experts who deal with the smartphone have their say.

Episode 1: The Big Swipe
In a very short space of time, the smartphone has become an indispensable part of our daily lives. But how exactly did the smartphone become the global phenomenon it is today? In this episode, we travel back to the beginnings of the smartphone: to the year 2007, when the smartphone as we know it was first introduced to the world.
