RYBN : Internet Anonymity

Meeting, Reading and Performance
Thursday January 25, 2018 - 8 PM

If the video surveillance system displays images, how the numerical surveillance substantiates despite its complexity of data, network and algorithm ? What our digital shadows in the data centers of NSA, Amazon, Google and Facebook look like ? The artistic collective and research group RYBN invest in these issues through the setting of Surveillance Index with a metting which will be followed by a lecture by Magali Daniaux and Cédric Pigot and a performance by Benjamin Cadon.

Beyond the issue of image, which imaginaries, which politics convey these mathematics models which claim anticipate our choices, satisfy ourdesires and foresee our actions ? Through a round-table debate with the participation of the audience, the collective RYBN will perform an autopsy on the predictive algorithmic surveillance system PredPol.  Magali Daniaux and Cédric Pigot, from the publishing company Éditions UV, will read the next Konrad Becker book to be published, Dictionnaire de réalité stratégique - Intelligence culturelle et politiques invisibles de l'information. Then, the artist Benjamin Cadon will present his performance Attack me please at 2.432 GHz.
