Are we falsely assuming internet is accessible to everyone? Does AI and the internet have gender and race bias?
Finnish artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö will discuss these topics with Melody Patry, advocacy director and co-founder of digital rights advocacy Access Now, Shira Jeczmien editor-in-chief of Screen Shot media, and the artist, writer, curator Tamar Clarke-Brown and the Feminist Internet, a group of artists and designers working to advance internet equalities for marginalised groups.
The discussion is part of Rönkkö’s residency during which she spends six months without the internet and explores ways of existing in a city and a society offline. During her experiment, she leads workshops, performances, lectures and discussions.
The Finnish Institute in London is supporting the residency.
