Building a Feminist Data Set

HKW - K1

This workshop explores how data collection can be used as an artistic practice and a collaborative, community practice. It involves a lecture on machine learning, data, and design thinking, but ultimately is collaborative and a facilitated process towards building a feminist data set from the ground up. Exploring the potential of data to disrupt larger systems by generating new forms of agency, the following questions are addressed: Can data collection itself function as an artwork? Can it act as a form of protest? The creation of this feminist data set will act as a means to combat bias and introduce the possibility of data collection as a feminist practice, aiming to produce a slice of data to intervene in larger civic and private networks.

Participants need to bring their laptops for the workshop.
