Call for Art Exhibition in Berlin. Curator Dorit Jordan Dotan
The triangle between cultural conquest, assimilation and integration
Demographic changes affect global and local politics, economies, urban affairs and day to day life.
For some of those who were lucky to be born in a stable, strong, democratic country, it is hard to accept those changes. It creates fear of job loss and the changing of familiar local culture. Immigrants or refugees face changes adapting to social behavior codes. History forewarns what can happen when hate, fear and a sense of threat grows among and between people coming from different cultures, who now share space.
Making peace within oneself – coexisting with oneself and others – can be achieved in many ways. Art can create a safe, public place to express and explore these clashes of culture.
Does acceptance of those different from us always result in complete assimilation?
Is cultural conquest inevitable?
Is integration the goal, or the compromise?
How do we go from tolerating to tolerance?
Exhibition about Demographic Changes, will take place in Berlin, Germany. The curator will open her artist residency project with a group exhibition from the USA and the EU.

Digitality has become an integrated experience, a depiction of our complex and hierarchical social reality. Although, by now, many users have become aware of the large degree Big Data involves the vigorous use of algorithms for analytics as well as software for surveillance, it has not curbed the mass use of social media. In fact, mass networking on social media has become the cultural tool for establishing a sense of intimacy despite the unease of personal disclosure. Real issues such as human rights abuses, homelessness or climate change cannot contest viral videos, fake news, cute pets and more recently, the controversial obsession with “dark tourism” selfies. We are informed by algorithms on who we are, selective advertisements help us to become skilled actors in our own self shaping. Users’ social activities are mined as data, making possible real-time tracking and monitoring. This colonisation of personal data is already manipulating social media content. Targeted personalisation on the Internet today purges reality with users becoming dehumanised commodities existing in a fabricated unreality. The control of the coloniser is now defined by the monopoly of the data colonised.
Areas of interest
Social Media Self shaping, Online personal and group identity, Corporate data mining, Biological labour versus human generated data labour, Artificial Intelligence, Colonisation of humans by non-human actors, Human obsolescence, Unpaid data workers, Dark tourism, Smart cities and tools of surveillance, Social and political implications on data mining human behaviours.
