Panel talk & book launch 'Image Management' by Kim de Groot

How do images become network protocols, database objects and viral agents that organize our behavior? The book Image Management by Rotterdam-based media designer Kim de Groot investigates these questions hands-on, and from the viewpoint of a visual maker. Her objects of study range from tagging in Flickr to obscene image memes like the Korean dog poop girl. Which behavioral feedback loops do they provoke? How does this new networked visual culture challenge artists and designers?

Radical images demand critical debate - with Kim, joined by Frans-Willem Korsten, cultural studies professor and political theorist, and Geert Mul, media and Big Data artist, moderated by the director of Creating 010 research centre, Florian Cramer.
