Project description

Caroline Sinders' performative workshop takes place within Jenny Brockmann's lecture "Forms and Formats of Performativity and Articulation" and focuses on collecting feminist data beginning with an introduction to machine learning, data, and design thinking, and leading into a collaborative and facilitated process with the objective of building a feminist data set from the ground up. Through the workshop we will explore the potential of data to disrupt larger systems by generating new forms of agency. 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.

Caroline Sinders is an award winning critical designer, researcher, and artist. She’s worked with the Tate Exchange at the Tate Modern, the United Nations, Ars Electronica’s AI Lab, the Harvard Kennedy School and others.
