This discussion and lecture evening engages with the topics of circumvention, connectivity, and inequality. Curator and researcher Amal Alhaag uses the slapstick comedy "The Gods Must Be Crazy" by the South African filmmaker Jamie Uys (1980) as a departure point for a conversation on connectivity, absurdity and the geopolitization of the (digital) self. Artist Luis Rodil-Fernández gives a talk on the relationship between information and power, and activist and researcher Michael Brennan examines scenarios in which inequality plays out online, how data-based decision making contributes to injustice in the criminal justice system, and how image recognition inadvertently perpetuates racial bias.
