Protecting Digital Privacy - Wednesday 20 February

Can we protect our privacy and rights in a digital world?

Our personal data has been dubbed the ‘new oil’ - mined by companies and used to
manipulate us to buy, vote, and behave as they see fit. But is there an alternative? Can we
protect our online privacy and rights? Reclaim ownership of our own data? Go off-grid?

Chaired by Alexandra Xanthaki


Dr Christine Riefa

Protecting consumers’ data in the digital world: advocating privacy by design

Professor Panos Louvieris

The Digital Prosumer – an innovative trading platform to facilitate a fair and open data market

Professor Will Self

Off-Grid: You Don't Have to be ‘The Unabomber’ to Go Off-Grid – Individual Choice and Our Experiences with Data

---------------

The last session of the Series will feature an intervention, devised by Will Self and Phil Coy, exploring our relationship with handheld technology.



Phil Coy’s practice collages concepts rooted in the radical art and literature of the 20th century, with the languages and architectures of contemporary global commerce. His work considers the perceptual shift from analogue to digital media, particularly in the context of landscape representation. Recent exhibitions include: York Art Gallery (2018); South London Gallery (2018); Royal Observatory Greenwich (2018); Annely Juda Fine Art (2018); FACT (2017); Ferens Art Gallery and Hull Maritime Museum (2016); Wilkinson Gallery (2016); 58th and 59th BFI London Film Festivals (2014 and 2015). His public work, your right to continued existence (2016) is permanently installed on the Caledonian Road in London.
