Computational Invisible Control: Infrastructures / Data / Humans

ROUNDTABLE WITH LAURA BENÍTEZ, MARIO SANTAMARÍA, JOANA MOLL & ANDREU BELSUNCES

Fabra i Coats
Thursday 07, Nov

Our ecosystems (humans included) are embedded in a computational world that extends from the satellites that orbit our planet to the bottom of the oceans, affecting climate, economy, politics and the way we relate to ourselves and others. This round table brings together art, philosophy and sociology to reflect on this reality and debate about the potentialities of digital art as a practice to problematise and open alternatives to our algorithmically controlled society.

Laura Benitez is a doctor in philosophy, investigator and independent curator whose investigation connects philosophy, art and technoscience; Joana Moll is an artist and researcher whose work explores the way post-capitalist narratives affect the alphabetisation of machines, humans and ecosystems; Andreu Belsunces is a sociologist of technology and design who investigates the politics of technology; Mario Santamaria studies the phenomenon of the contemporary observer through representational practices and machine vision.
