In a one-day program, contributors to the exhibition and guests will reflect on the question of political and creative autonomy in the digital age. In the gap between individual experience and aggregated data, a crisis of values is emerging.

Beneath narrowed framings such as privacy, net neutrality and surveillance lie more fundamental questions of autonomy, and the “fragile free spaces” that are essential for creativity, experimentation, and resistance to be possible.
