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 – to be confirmed).
The evening will be moderated by Lennart Booij (Amsterdam, 1970), a Dutch curator, art historian, TV maker and presenter.
Futhermore our fellows (six creatives from across the globe working on individual projects revolving around the theme) will be there. We announce more speakers soon.
AGE OF WONDERLAND: Big Data. Big DADA?
This year’s Age of Wonderland research fellows take on the challenge of sharing their perspectives on big and open data by laying out its potential, limits and pitfalls. During Dutch Design Week you will familiarise yourself with their research and meet the fellows during the main exhibition, the provocative seminar and the workshops.
Visit also the exhibition in Natlab, or meet the fellows and learn more about their projects at their lectures and workshops from 22 - 30 October.
