Human Rights in the Digital Age
Onur Olgaç co-curates our thematic cluster “Human Rights in the Digital Age”.
Sharpening his artistically charged AI and self-hosting skills as a developer and sysadmin at present, Onur Olgaç pursued his BSc. in Computer Science with an extensive involvement in Visual Communication Design.
His focus shifted towards human perception and decision making processes in interaction design and the politics surrounding technology within artistic contexts as part of his MA degree at Interface Cultures, while actively working against constantly evolving, oppressive digital trends both in his practice as well as his teaching series “Digital Sovereignty” that aims for the emancipation of the end user.
He has participated in various international events such as the Sónar Festival (Barcelona), Ars Electronica Festival (Linz), Yami-Ichi (Madrid, Bologna, Linz), NODE Festival (Frankfurt), Art Meets Radical Openness (Linz), Darbast Platform (Tehran), Amber Festival (Istanbul) through exhibitions as well as collaborations, performances, talks and workshops.
