A second version of the mobile exhibition of “Are You Being Served?” travelled to La Maison des Arts/Huis der Kunsten for the occasion of the yearly international conference Computers, Privacy & Data Protection <http://cpdpconferences.org>. This time, we added a robotic vacuum cleaner/PirateBox that transported files related to the event, and also video documentation of the Feminist Server Summit.
“Internet is becoming more and more densely populated with services that monitor data traffic, networks and users. Cloud computing services claim a good, safe and transparent use of your data, but these very data are stored in unknown places and “served” back to you wherever and whenever you want. The artists in this travelling exhibition do not sit on a cloud and like to keep an eye on their own data. They ask themselves: Who does that server really serve?” (Excerpt from flyer, Constant)
