Parallel to the exhibition, a symposium (core and chorus) on the topic of crediting and contributions in art, technology and science will be held. The exhibition becomes the opener and ignites the spark to get a diverse group of people talking about this topic.
The symposium will offer a platform for interested artists, technologists, scientists and others to connect and discuss the topic of systemically relevant but under-credited and underpaid work.
Here is a tentative list of themes that will be explored:
- art, science and software: comparing money, rights, and acknowledgement
- layers of community: Building community, building on top of communities and building community on top of communities
- the future of authorship: AI, blockchain and beyond
- the value of work: how value is assigned, perceived, generated.
