About the
Exhibition

This interdisciplinary exhibition addresses the theme of digital dictatorship as well as the question of autonomy and the development of strategies for digital self-defence. Our world is moving with incredible speed towards an absolute monopoly of global digital players. The gold: data. The result: total control, needs-creating machinery generated by algorithms and the loss of any form of private sphere. Trust is the staple diet, we can assume responsibility as users, promises should be kept, and anger and impotence are what we feel due to the permanent misuse of our trust.

 

With art objects, interactive installations, objects from the museum’s collection, workshops, performances, artists’ talks and lectures, the exhibition moves along these lines to provide a glimpse behind the surface, offering guidance on digital self-defence with the accompanying handbook.
