From 7-11 May, the corridors of UK Parobrod will become the corridors of the Internet, where DiploFoundation’s international exhibition will tackle the digital issues of today through artwork previously exhibited at the UN’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2017, in Geneva.
Come and experience the meeting points of art, law, personal stories, technical protocols, photographs of cats and secret messages. From data privacy and protection, through encryption to domain name systems, follow the signs that lead to the questions of gender and technology, and issue of access. The exhibition is organised as a network, spanning two floors and several rooms, in which each artwork offers a short introduction into the digital issue at hand. For additional orientation within the setup, guided tours will be organised every day.
With works by:
The exhibition will be opened with a guided tour, on Monday May 7th, 2018 at 20h.
As part of the exhibition Inside Internet corridors, on Thursday, May 10th, 2018 at 18h, there will be a discussion on the subject of contemporary data flows, through an exchange about legal, art and digital policy practices.
For many years, data and privacy were not seen as issues relevant to the daily lives and personal realities of most of the public. However, with the Snowden revelations in 2013, came a newfound understanding that governments around the world were using online data to track the movement and communications of their citizens. With the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, the Mark Zuckerberg hearing and the 'delete facebook' movement, people are beginning to understand the power that these companies hold over large sets of personal data.
The aim of this talk is to discuss how data impacts our lives and how we can all engage in advocacy to better understand the issues and take control of our data through law, art, media theory, technology and policy. We will talk about Cambridge Analytica scandal and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), concrete projects which use digital media and art interventions as mediators for communicating technical issues, offer some practical tools, and we will check out each other’s data!

The event is organised by DiploFoundation, the SHARE Foundation, the Internet Policy Observatory, the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with UK Parobrod
