Organized and curated by the Goethe-Institut Ukraine, Kunsht
Partner: Tactical Tech
Humans are the most vulnerable safety link on the Internet. We can lose control of our data, but we can master the tools to protect it. Data CTRL Center is a large-scale regional project initiated by the Goethe-Institut Ukraine, aimed at promoting media literacy and personal data protection on the Internet.
Book Arsenal presents a mini-version of the exhibition curated by the popular science media Kunsht, which also contains some Tactical Tech projects (Berlin). The exhibition is adapted to the focus theme of this year’s Festival and is divided into ‘optimistic’ and ‘skeptical’ poles of technology influence. It shows how technology uses our personal data, forms a news feed and protects digital life. The exhibition illustrates why it is so important to develop critical thinking and media literacy in today’s environment and encourages us to take responsibility for our own personal data.
The exhibition presents works with the participation of teams Reface, Sensorama, Get bad news, Digital Security Laboratory, and On the other side of the news; the works by Berlin artist Aram Bartol, Australian artist Tega Brain, Boston artist Suria Matu and others.
