INFORMATION (Today)

Exhibitions

Encrypted networks, digital currencies, artificial intelligence, data harvesting, algorithmic biases, and sentient machines: all effects of twenty-first-century data-based capitalism. The proliferation of information, and data’s nebulous modes of circulating and being processed, fundamentally shape daily life now. INFORMATION (Today) is a group show featuring contemporary artists seeking to unravel this phenomenon. It is a loose response to the iconic 1970 INFORMATION exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and also to two other less widely known but pathbreaking shows staged at Kunsthalle Basel, Information and Das offene Museum – die Stadt, from 1969 and 1970, respectively.
