The Big Data/Dada Dialogues
An inspiring seminar about big and open data
There is a lot to say about big data. Some will find it the next exiting revolution with huge chances for not only technological but also social innovation all over the world. Others will consider it as the new oil, a trade product to make profit instead of benefitting society. On Monday 24 October we will take a look at big and open data from different perspectives.
Guest speakers are Arne Hendriks (artist and curator Age of Wonderland), Dr. Julia Hoffmann (Programme Development Manager Transparency and Accountability at Hivos) and Dr. Nishant Shah (dean of Research at ArtEZ and professor at the Institute of Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media at Leuphana University in Lüneburg, Germany). The latter is approaching big data from three beginning points: looking at the body and its new locations in our networked societies, affect and its mechanisms of functioning, and the history of data imperialism, the input offers a new form of looking at Big Data in its contemporary forms.
Futhermore our fellows (six creatives from across the globe working on individual projects revolving around the theme) will be there.
The evening will be moderated by Lennart Booij, curator Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, art historian, television producer and presenter. The programme will be in English.
Admission is free. But if you want to be sure of a seat, please register by buying a 0-euro ticket.
