Spectacle of Sports

Join us at W139, to watch the quarter-finals of the World Cup with mediation of the game from artist and researcher Florian van Zandwijk. A football stadium is simultaneously a microcosm and a magnification of the society it stands in the middle of. Immersed in a TV-studio setup, Florian will do a pre- and post-match analysis connecting the use of technology in and around football to a wider political, societal, and cultural context. This performance-lecture will be the first manifestation of his latest research on data-collection, surveillance, media coverage, and the effects of technology within the sport of football.

Florian van Zandwijk

Our human and technological sensorial perceptions are inseparably connected and constantly shaping each other in today’s digital age; this fact usually serves as the basis for Van Zandwijk’s projects. With a simple intervention or through written or visual essays, Van Zandwijk researches topics from his own perception and hypothesis about present human and non-human Ways of Seeing. In this way van Zandwijk tries to provide insight into and make a statement about contemporary themes involving the biases and limited capacities of human and technological perception. Such themes are; social media, mass-surveillance and computer vision.
