AGENT: The human side of technology feat. Kai Brach (Offscreen Mag / Dense Discovery)
Date and Time
Welcome to AGENT (Melbourne), presented by A Lot To Say, an ALTS Project.
In this very special discussion, we are joined by Kai Brach, a German-born, Melbourne-based independent designer, editor, and publisher. He’s the one-man-band behind print magazine Offscreen and weekly newsletter Dense Discovery.
Kai spends a lot of time thinking about how we shape technology and how technology shapes us. Since starting Offscreen more than seven years ago, his publication has evolved into a strong independent voice with a thoughtful, critical look at how technology shapes our societies – for better and worse. Join us for a conversation about technology, ethics, and what it takes to publish a print magazine about our digital future.
