Schemas of Uncertainty — Book presentation & discussion with Danae Io and Callum Copley

Through a collection of contributions that vary in format and mode of address, the ‘Schemas of Uncertainty’ book explores the relationship between prediction and prescription. It traces the effects predictive technologies have on the imagination of possible futures, futures other than that of technological progress. Moving between machine learning, critical theory, tarot readings, astrology, personal narratives, myths, fiction and much else, the book attempts to think through what it might mean to welcome uncertainty as a way of resisting ideas that impose a singular meaning or direction. Through various accounts on predictive practices, it opens up alternate propositions for occupying elsewhere and otherwise.

Book contributions by—Ramon Amaro, Holly Childs, Callum Copley, Flavia Dzodan, Kenric McDowell, Danae Io, Ioanna Gerakidi, Valentina Desideri & Stefano Harney, Emily Rosamond, Bin Koh, Juliette Lizotte, Alice Dos Reis and Tom Kemp. The book is edited by Callum Copley & Danae Io and designed by Alex Walker with illustrations by Bin Koh. The bookmark is designed by Charlotte Rohde with texts by Aidan Wall. It is published by PUB with the support of the Sandberg Instituut, Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

As part of the Neuhaus curriculum at Het Nieuwe Instituut, the research collective is organising three workshops centred around the accompanying notions of Production, Friction, Fiction. The participants are invited to think through what it might mean to embrace uncertainty as a way of resisting ideas that impose a singular meaning or direction. During the event, the collective outcomes of the workshop series will be discussed.

Schemas of Uncertainty is a collective research project on the notion of prediction, both as a long-standing interest of human beings through their histories, but also as inscribed into the techno-capitalist present. The project is organised and facilitated by Danae Io and Callum Copley and has previously taken the form of a cross-departmental research group and symposium at the Sandberg Instituut.

After the event, you are invited to join the lecture ‘Mercurial Algorithms’ by Flavia Dzodan at 18.30, and reading/workshop ‘Tarot and the City’ by Adeola Enigbokan at 20.00.
