Welcome to the Fair Tech and Virtual Fun: the Utrecht Garden by IMPAKT. In a time in which the digital world has become our habitat, where we live, meet, work, celebrate and breathe online, this year’s Utrecht Garden will focus on two topics.
In the CODE presentations with a talk by Frederike Kaltheuner, tech policy analyst, researcher and data-justice advocate, we focus on Fair Tech and Digital Agency. CODE is a collaboration between IMPAKT and School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe in Berlin to bring together artists, citizens, politicians, and policy makers about issues of privacy and freedom in our digital public sphere.
In our workshops and online Bal Masqué party i.c.w. EMAP — European Media Art Platform and Ars Electronica, we use Zoom as a playground for virtual VJ-ing and digital dress parties with masks and filters. You are all invited to wear your most crazy digital masks and party with us during this unique virtual club night.
