IMPAKT Event: Algorithmic Superstructures
Location: IMPAKT Centre for Media Culture
Algorithmic Superstructures, a presentation by the curators of Impakt Festival 2018
In the age of post-truth, algorithmic superstructures are looking over your shoulder. Predictive analysis, data mining, machine learning and other advanced algorithms define the outlines of our lives as digital subjects. When power becomes automated, what can we offer as counter-practices? This year’s Impakt Festival aims to address the condition of algorithmic post-truth and offer critical and creative ways to challenge it. It explores what “deep truths” are brought on by the algorithmic superstructures.
