About the Item
Meet your new instructor.
In the video "Are You Not Edutained?" Gediminas Daugela addresses post-cinematic affect and the phenomenon of edutainment: educational material available in an entertaining way. Edutainment-content is created for different audiences on educational youtube channels and other platforms. In this work, the artist reduces all the functions of such content to the key one: to capture the attention of the viewer, to seduce him/her. Thus, studying how the new media form emotions of the viewer. Post-cinematic affect is a Stephen Shaviro's term. He uses it to describe the digital sensibility and visual strategies shaped by new media.
