A reality check on the creative industries
Talks, Discussions, Art, Workshops, Performances
20-21 November 2014

The Institute of Network Cultures presents MYCREATIVITY SWEATSHOP, an international symposium where artists, scholars and activists critically probe the conditions of creative production in today’s economy. Two days of panels, performances, discussions and workshops will open a space to focus on the consequences of global creative industries policy, to discuss alternatives and to develop new paths for both survival and subversion.

In many countries creative industries policy is radically reshaping the conditions of creative production. Simultaneously, new technologies are increasingly turning creative processes into a function of big data streams, algorithms and digital scalability. What are the new physical, technological and aesthetic spaces of subversion and critique? How does creative industry policy and the big data economy influence the idea of artistic autonomy? And, as the ‘creative’ city mutates into the ‘smart’ city, what are appropriate strategies for smart interventions from below?

We invite artists, managers, designers, computer engineers, cultural workers, internet entrepreneurs, educators, market strategists, squatters, policy makers and anyone else interested in forging new ways and means for creative survival, to join us on 20-21 November at Trouw in Amsterdam.

Speakers: Pek van Andel | Zach Blas | Florian Cramer | Sigrid Dyekjaer | Mark Fisher | Pascal Gielen | Joke Hermes | Robert Hewison | Marijke Hoogenboom | Pieter van Huystee | Rob van Kranenburg | Sven Lutticken | Frank Rieger | Sarah Sharma | Josephine Berry Slater | Bruce Sterling | Maria Tarantino
