How can art help us understand the rapid and far-reaching changes that networked technologies have spawned? How are artists examining the hidden corporate agendas and techno-politics that lurk behind the devices we use every day?

This conversation with Curator Anna Briers will cover the conceptual framework of Don’t Be Evil through the lens of key works in the exhibition.

Themes include: digital intimacies, fake news and the weaponization of social media, exploitative labour in the digital economy, data extraction and the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI).
