The Objectivist Drug Party and Genomic Intimacy. Sounds intriguing, right? From this Friday, 11 May until 18 July, the MU in Eindhoven will be hosting these two solo exhibitions about biotechnology, AI and the Internet of Things.
These things are shaping the 21st century on a daily basis. MU will be taking a closer look at ways to explain the information-related beliefs of our time. These include identity, privacy, freedom, and truth. They will be doing this with two separate solo exhibitions by artists, Zach Blas and Heather Dewey-Hagborg.
The two exhibitions pose some challenging questions. Questions like, “What chance do we stand against trillion-dollar industries outsourcing and selling our information? When companies and governments have the computing power and algorithms to handle the data of billions of people; when artificial intelligence predicts our buying behaviour as well as our potential threat to society – where does that leave us?
MU can be found in the former Philips Factory in Strijp-S. Exhibition times are from 10:00 to 18:00 during the week, 11: 00 to 17:00 on Saturdays and 13:00 to 17:00 on Sundays. Entrance is EUR5. Students pay only EUR3.
