The CCCB examines how the widespread generation and storage of technological data is transforming the modern-day lifestyle and decisions made in society.
Should digital data be seen as a opportunity for knowledge, prevention, efficiency and transparency in a democratic society, or is it perhaps a tool of mass surveillance, used for the wrong reasons by businesses and government agencies?
Although there is nothing new about the fact that we generate data every day via mobile phones, social networks and GPS signals, the exhibition organisers point out that it is increasingly easy to store and process vast amounts of data.
In addition to artists, the show includes input by a range of figures whose professions now depend on accessing data, such as investigators, activists, designers, teachers, analysts, cartographers, engineers, economists, architects, communicators, programmers and journalists.
Tues-Sun 11.00-20.00 Thur 11.00-22.00.
