CODE 2022 Webproject
CODE 2022 is the second edition of CODE, organised by IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] together with School of Machines, Making & Make Believe (Berlin), Werktank (Leuven) and Privacy Salon/Privacytopia (Brussels/Antwerp).
The CODE 2022 webproject is the online exhibition that showcases all the different works that were developed over the course of the entire CODE programme, including the works from CODE 2021. There is a strong focus on the general themes and issues raised by this year’s participants. These themes can be seen in their works, and also served as the overarching concepts we used when questioning politicians for the CODE project.
The interviews with politicians are a core part of this online exhibition. They show how various politicians view the issues raised by the projects in this programme, and how they feel these issues could be addressed. We hope that by helping people create critical art on issues in the digital realm, we can catalyse changes within public and political awareness.
CODE seeks to bring together artists, non-artists, politicians, policy makers and researchers from Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands to engage in dialogue, critical discussion, and artistic intervention. We are trying to influence public policy on a national and international level by creating awareness for issues at hand, and by defining ways in which we can improve laws and legislation that will protect us as digital citizens and consumers. We want to inspire and facilitate cross-disciplinary collaborations, which hopefully have the potential to catalyse system change.
CODE 2022 is realised with the support of Creative Industries Fund NL, Soziokultur Fund, Cultural Participation Fund, Dutch Embassy in Belgium, Dutch Embassy in Berlin and Goethe Institut.
