Hackathon / Art Hack Day
Thursday 26th September – Saturday 28th September
In contemporary society our digital footprints are more obvious than ever, despite efforts to cover our tracks. Facebook, Google, Yahoo – the omnipresent online powers that be have a mind boggling capacity to store all the vital data we toss around so carelessly, so it’s no wonder that more and more people are trying to abstain from this data exchange altogether, hence this edition of Art Hack Day’s theme being ‚Going Dark‘. Featuring over 50 artists and hackers, the hackathon will consist of perfromances, exhibitions, parties and much more.
