<nettime> Save the Date: Conference "Every Step You T

   Dear Nettime,

   14/15 November, 2015: Schauspiel Dortmund / Municipal Theatre of
   Dortmund (Theatre bar "Institut" & Studio)
   The international conference >Every Step You Take< - Art and Society in
   the Data Age deals with the utopias and dystopias interconnected with
   new technologies of automated collection, storage and analysis of vast
   amounts of data. A feeling of uneasiness is being articulated in
   numerous scientific and artistic positions in view of current
   developments in our digital and networked media reality. The public
   debate on >Big Data<, surveillance, transparency and data protection,
   as well as individual user behaviour in social networks are deeply
   ambivalent: the promises and temptations of technological progress --
   safety, predictability, optimisation, convenience -- come with societal
   and personal consequences. In all their complexity, these consequences
   often remain intangible and abstract.
   The conference >Every Step You Take< presents positions of media art,
   theory and digital culture reacting to these current technological and
   societal developments. A central question is how current artistic
   strategies are able to visualise invisible, immaterial and highly
   complex processes, thereby describing the present technological changes
   and making their consequences comprehensible. A second focus will be
   the societal, economic and political ideas that have inscribed
   themselves in the way new media functions: How do these ideas and
   rationale reproduce in everyday use? And how much space is there for a
   critical analysis and emancipation in the digital realm?
   The conference programme includes lectures, panel discussions, a film
   programme curated by Florian Wüst, a performance of the live film
   "Minority Report" at Schauspiel Dortmund (14 November, 19:30 h), a
   literary reading by German novelist Leif Randt (15 November, Schauspiel
   Dortmund), and a Maker Lounge with workshops e.g. on e-mail encryption
   in the Dortmunder U foyer.
   Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) presents in parallel with the
   conference the exhibition >(Artificial Intelligence) Digitale Demenz<,
   curated by Thibaut de Ruyter, at Dortmunder U.
