From May 7-11th, corridors of UK Parobrod will become corridors of the Internet, with DiploFoundation’s international exhibition tackling digital issues of today through artworks, from the UN’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Geneva.
Come and experience the meeting points of art, law, personal stories, technical protocols, photographs of cats and secret messages. From data privacy and protection, over encryption and domain name system, follow the signs on the road up to the relation of gender and technology and questions of access. The show is organized in a network, spanning two floors and several rooms, in which each artwork offers a short introduction into the digital issue at hand. For additional orientation within the setup, guided tours will be organized every day.

The exhibition will be opened with a guided tour, Monday May 7th 2018. at 20h.
As part of the exhibition Inside Internet corridors, on Thursday, May 10th at 18h there will be a discussion on the subject of contemporary flows of data, through an exchange of legal, art and digital policy practices.
For many years data and privacy were not seen as issues that were relevant to the daily lives and personal realities of most of the public. However, with the Snowden revelations in 2013 came a newfound understanding that governments around the world were using online data to track the movement and communications of their citizens. With the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, Mark Zuckerberg hearing and “delete facebook” movement people are now beginning to understand the power that these companies hold over large sets of personal data.
The aim of this talk is to discuss how data impacts our lives and how we can all engage in advocacy to better understand the issues and take control of our data through law, art, media theory, technology and policy. We will talk about Cambridge Analytica and GDPR, concrete projects which use digital media and art interventions as mediators for communicating technical issues, offer some practical tools, and we’ll check out each other’s data!
