Sjoerd ter Borg
Can technology tell the future? In his latest film project Beach Umbrella (파라솔) artist Sjoerd ter Borg shows how technology can be used to examine urban developments. By using Street View archives of companies like Google, Kakao and Naver, he categorises the city of Seoul and traces its history of gentrification. Link

Joe McNamee
At European Digital Rights, Joe works on policy issues such as copyright, net neutrality, freedom of expression and internet safety. Tonight he’ll be joining us for a crash course in the flood of new legislation that will redefine the relationship between your art and the internet companies you rely on to share your creation.

Perrine Philomeen
Inspired by hijabista’s, fashionable Muslim women who wear their hijab in creative ways, visual stylist Perrine Philomeen graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academie with a photo series celebrating the hijab. With hijabs in bright colours, shiney fabrics and even one made out of socks, the garment becomes a way to express femininity, empowerment and style and thus break free of the stereotypical image of Muslim woman.

Our climate is changing and our monetary system is about to explode, but governments seem more concerned with power than anything else. Tonight SulSolSal, a research and design studio initiated by architect Guido Giglio and designer Hannes Bernard, will show alternative learning strategies experienced through catastrophes, disasters or crises across the world. It’s a project they just showed at the Istanbul Design Biennial. Link
