Technology is never neutral but a reflection of the biases in our society. How is bias coded into our technology? How can we infiltrate the opaque mechanisms upon which technological systems are built and counter the perpetuation of bias? How can infiltrate the opaque mechanisms upon which technological systems are built and what existential impact do the Internet, robotics, and artificial intelligence have on us as individuals and on our society?
The film series IMAGE+BIAS. FILMIC EXPLORATIONS brings together feature films, documentaries and short films that address these questions from different perspectives and with different focus. The selected films approach these questions in an innovative, provocative, but also humorous way and reflect on the sustainability of our value systems for a digitalized and high-tech future.
The film programme will be accompanied by a discursive workshop programme that offers interested parties the opportunity to delve deeper into the topics dealt with in the films.
