In his lecture, the artist and anti-copyrighter will talk about big data and what it means to urban planning, as well as presenting his upcoming project More Human than Than Human. An Automated Social Science Fiction Series.
The glass facades in Los Angeles in the 1980s, which appeared later in Moscow, reflect the idea of a city that is closed and shows only the mirror surfaces. The new commercial ideas of the city sound different, they are based on the data received from users, and make us not citizens, but digital entities. Today, in cities such as Toronto or Lanzhou, the city data which is used in work with public spaces is hidden behind the paradigm of convenience that occurs both in authoritarian states and within the framework of global business ideas. The lecture will tell you about this phenomenon. Also, Christian von Borries will show fragments of his new feature film More Human Than Human. An Automated Social Science Fiction Series which is scheduled for release in 2019.
