An international jury comprised of artists, curators, and researchers had the difficult task of selecting the ten best works from over 150 submissions.
Submissions explored discriminatory, misrepresentational, and biased apparatuses and expressed thought-provoking ideas on how to deal with the perpetuation of bias by technology.
The open call is part of the project “Image + Bias” that critically engages with the cultural realities being increasingly determined by imperceptible technologies that show no sign of reducing their propagation of digitally twisted, fictional, and discriminatory representations. The project addresses the following questions: 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? What innovative approaches can we develop to strengthen inclusion, diversity, and sustainability in technology?
