In 2018, the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal sent ripples across the world. The use and misuse of personal data by the political consultancy further damaged the already shaky common perception that new information technologies and expanding data collection inherently serve the betterment of humankind. The rapid advances in artificial intelligence and big data collection and analytics allow for unprecedented levels of surveillance. Similarly, it has never been easier to individualize advertising and information supply, making it much more effective at influencing people’s behaviour and actions. What is the true potential of these new technologies and what effect might they have on our society, especially its governance? Have the new developments in information technology made the world less safe for freedom and democracy? And if so, what is to be done in order to protect these two tenets of our society while enjoying the fruits of our technological progress?
🗣️ 17:00 – 18:00 Big Data, Information and Politics. New Technologies in Focus.
🥂 18:00 – 20:00 Light refreshment, entrance to exhibition #DATAMAZE (https://www.dox.cz/en/exhibitions/datamaze)
We are the internet! Our world is changing. We are witnessing a revolution that for the last thirty years has been changing how we think, communicate, work, and spend our free time. The internet has become a tool and instrument of daily life. It has created a world that we plumb and simultaneously run away from. This process is irreversible and has permanently changed how our society works. This is one of the reasons why it is important to reflect on our situation and our position within it: we aren't only witnesses to the digital transformation, we are all a part of it, passive or active.
The #DATAMAZE project presents an "extended exhibition". It combines the concept of an exhibition that is a work in progress with a workspace and library intended for activities and developing collaboration across areas and topics related to a critical reflection on our existence environment, with a lecture space. Here, art becomes an intermediary that allows us to examine and reflect on our situation from an unforeseen, new perspective: art projects dealing with the world of computers and the internet make us realize how they impact us and how they are changing our lives and the world around us.
Exhibiting artists: Paolo Cirio, Aram Bartholl, Joana Moll + Internet Timeline by Ars Electronica, Linz
