Conference Stream Life. What situations and relations of control over self, work, leisure and everyday life are emerging in the paradigm of the Smart City?

Conference Stream Life

In the post-digital urban life every thing as well as every relation between things and subjects are potentially quantifiable and addressable, and thus rendered operational in a new way for economical and cultural (trans)-actions. What situations and relations of control over self, work, leisure and everyday life are emerging in the paradigm of the Smart City? What is the role of art in pushing such developments forward and/or resisting or altering their course? And how does civil society respond to these developments, for example in the form of citizen driven ways of outsmarting this new urban situation of technological ubiquity?

Presented in cooperation with Winchester School of Art.
