TodaysArt Festival | Isabel Mager | The Design of Human Management

Why should it matter how the most visible devices are made? How is an interviewing software constructed, that claims to cut out the human bias common to face-to-face job interviews? In this talk, social designer Isabel Mager will take the visitors through her work in the TodaysArt exhibition, delving into her own artistic practice and research. Both of her research projects, ‘input = output’ and ‘5000times’, engage with the back-end and hidden structures of technology.

The talk is presented on the ground floor/ RNDR space, on the 1st floor of the building.

[exploring? designing? making?] Through exploring three levels of algorithmic power over humans – assist, control and replace – this bootcamp will map out the relation between algorithmic authorities and human anxiety.   The bootcamp’s collective “research through making” approach mixes theoretical input, visual and textual assignments with performative elements. Lectures by Dr. Nishant Shah and other special guests (TBA) will introduce the participants to the concept of artificial authorities and how they relate to the “self’ within the context of this workshop. Selected parts of the bootcamp results will be included in the upcoming printed issue NXS #4 Algorithmic Anxiety, to be released in February 2019.

Please note: this bootcamp is meant for participants only and won’t be open to the public.

Aan Tafel! 🍴

[Dutch only, sorry!]

Aan Tafel! is een multimediale theatrale belevenis waar eten en herinneringen centraal staan. “Hoe smaakt jouw thuis?” Theatermaker Annemarie de Bruijn trok met die vraag Amsterdam in en trof een rijke keuken. Samen met filmmaker Jasper Masthoff en decorontwerper Reier Pos maakte zij een multimediaal diner over eten en de grappige, mooie, ontroerende of belangrijke herinneringen die daaraan vastzitten. Aan Tafel! is een theatrale belevenis met kleine hapjes. Het is geen volledig diner.
