Empathy Sessions is a selection of film works that expand the notion of empathy. Created by artists and designers, they invite viewers to take on a diversity of perspectives – that of water, a tortoise, or even bacteria – and explore a multitude of spaces in the digital realm: from inside the earth to the deep ocean. Critical of existing and fictional technologies, these films shed light on the inherent biases and empathic opportunities of teleportation, facial recognition, artificial intelligence, robotics, biotechnology and augmented reality.

The films are screened every Thursday and Sunday at 13.00 at Pera Museum.
