OPEN CALL DATATATA CONFERENCE

Einreichfrist: 01. März 2019
Conference Datatata aims to discuss a wide range of questions about how the artistic practise is affected by contemporary phenomena of massive data collecting and data interpretation.
Conference will take place in Brno at the Faculty of Fine Arts
at Brno University of Technology on April 12, 2019.

You are invited to submit mainly theoretical, but also practical works, artworks and/or interdisciplinary projects corresponding (but not limited) to the following conference topics:
Datatata – data from the perspective of the machine
In this conference section focused on machine and non-human perspective, we can discuss, for example, who is the ultimate actor in the process of the final decision while the decision is based on data collected and processed by the (digital) machine? Who are we while the data describe us as discrete collections of parameters, history, and features?
Data + 2ta – data from the perspective of humans
This conference section aims to discuss data issues from the human perspective and our ability to interpret data pre-processed and collected
by the machine. Can humans be still able to understand and divide their interaction with machines while the first is a master of abstraction, simplification and modeling, and the latter is a master of description, complexity and exploration?
Data.art – data in art
This conference section aims to discuss such authentic art production
which is based on data. Which issues are brought in the visual arts by data,
and which forms and genres do they influence? Which questions
on understanding the relationship of big data and living reality are brought out by such art?
