The Centre for Innovation is hosting a special event during the Border Sessions Festival in The Hague on July 6-7. For this special event, the Centre for Innovation has invited Border Sessions to the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs to talk about data visualizations as a form of artwork. Digital data has become a tool of artistic expression and has introduced a more critical examination of technology and its impact on society. Artists look at themes such as surveillance and self-determination, while questioning art market concepts like authorship and intellectual property rights. To express their message, they use everything from video, software and websites to hardware, kinetic machines, and robotics.

At this session, we will talk about and illustrate current developments by showing examples of recent bodies of work. We will discuss with the audience how theoretical approaches can contextualize the current emerging fields within contemporary art.

‪Who should be interested? Data scientists, students, artists, creative designers and art lovers.

Registration is not required.
