Event description

Description

This panel discussion accompanies the exhibition:

Metadata: how we relate to images

10 January - 3 February 2018

Lethaby Gallery, Central Saint Martins, London.

Free. Limited places, please arrive early.


The rapid expansion and proliferation of digital technologies have led to a vast increase in the amount of data being recorded, stored and broadcast. Inevitably, control and ownership of this data – and its metadata – has become a much-debated topic in political and economic, but also cultural arenas, raising questions concerning the status of cultural goods and museum collections. This workshop brings together artists commenting on these issues in their practice as well as museum professionals whose collections are the object of these discussions.


Metadata: how we relate to images is organised by the International Research Project "Bilderfahrzeuge. Aby Warburg's Legacy and the Future of Iconology' in collaboration with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
