‘What is reality?’ This is one of the most contested issues today. The 'real' is said to be multiple, fragmented, virtualized, or even lost, as a result of media effects and social dynamics. The interpretations offered are highly controversial, some point to the disappearance of immediacy, others to the changes provoked by the application of new technologies. What are the layers of reality today and which of them concern us most? The new technologies have created hyperreality as the new environment for the human condition, destabilizing the senses, affects, knowledge as well as spatial and temporal relations.
