Back to overview

In this podcast, to accompany 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 4: It's a Match
The smartphone has completely transformed our ideas of relationships, romance and love - thanks to Facetime, social media, WhatsApp and the like, we can communicate with people from all over the world around the clock - across national borders and entire continents. This episode looks at how we manage relationships in the age of social media and dating apps and how we are developing a new language through emojis.

The podcast can also be heard wherever podcasts are available.
