Planet Digital

11.2. – 6.6.2022

Can algorithms be fair? Will artificial intelligence make everything else superfluous? Is there such a thing as media truth? And what do lava lamps have to do with data protection? From rare earths to gigantic server landscapes and from technical gadgets to social questions: Planet Digital puts our digital present and future under the microscope. The exhibition by University of Zurich and the Museum für Gestaltung was realized in collaboration with Zurich University of the Arts and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. Starting from 25 current research projects by their most creative minds the exhibition takes the public along on a sightseeing tour of the world of digitalization.
