[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.
