SFB Data Practices
Annual Conference 2019
Data Practices: Recorded, Provoked, Invented
The fourth annual conference of the Collaborative Research Centre “Media of Cooperation” explores the current challenges of praxeology in a world saturated with data-intensive technologies. What constitutes a data practice and how are digital media technologies reconfiguring our understanding of practices in general? Autonomously acting media, distributed digital infrastructures and sensor-based media environments challenge the conditions of accounting for data practices both theoretically and empirically. What forms of cooperation are constituted in, and by, data practices? What are the historical conditions of possibility for current data practices? And how are human and nonhuman agencies distributed and interrelated in data-saturated environments?
