Details

With the digitalisation of the economy we are confronted with a new information order often described as ‘surveillance capitalism’ that thrives on the exploitation of huge amounts of data across our social and everyday lives.

How should we make sense of these developments? And what do they mean for long-standing struggles for social, economic, racial and environmental justice?

In this talk we’ll take stock of some of the ways data is collected and used in society, their implications, and how we might advance alternative data infrastructures and economies.
