BIG BANG DATA

About the Exhibition

Every day we produce data: through searches on Google, likes on Facebook, or photo uploads to Instagram. This flood of information is dramatically changing the way we interact with each other and with the world. Data is an opportunity and a powerful tool that can be used to resolve problems and to raise questions. But it also has its limitations.  

Experience data in a whole new light at ArtScience Museum's upcoming Big Bang Data exhibition. Through a series of thought-provoking data visualisation artworks by artists, designers, journalists and innovators, you'll gain new perspectives on the issues surrounding the rapid datafication of our world, and discover the ways in which our ever-expanding digital footprint is radically transforming our lives, our decisions, and the future of society itself.


BIG BANG DATA - An exhibition organised by ArtScience Museum, and coproduced by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona - CCCB and Fundación Telefonica.

About the CCCB

The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona - CCCB is a space for the creation, investigation, divulgation and debate of contemporary culture where the visual arts, literature, philosophy, film, music and transmedia activities are interconnected in an interdisciplinary programme. The CCCB works in a network with international institutions and agents, and is linked at the same time to artists, creators’ groups, curators and independent cultural agents from the Barcelona area, supporting their proposals to participate in their creative capital and give them visibility.
