Isabel Mager – The Design of Human ManagementArtist Presentation

Grey Space in the Middle
Why should it matter how the most visible devices—Information & Communication Technology (ICT)—are made? How is an interviewing software constructed, that claims to cut out the human bias common to face-to-face job interviews?
In this talk, social designer Isabel Mager will take the visitors through her work in the TodaysArt exhibition, delving into her own artistic practice and research. Both of her research projects, ‘input = output’ and ‘5000times’, engage with the back-end and hidden structures of technology. Mager is interested in the discriminatory layers that are present in both the back-end of ICT production lines and the back-end of software programming.
