Open Codes


An exhibition by Azkuna Zentroa - AlhóndigaBilbao and ZKM / Art and Media Centre Karlsruhe

11:00 am
Open Codes

Open Codes. We are Data reflects on the world we live in today: a world created and governed by codes. Digital codes determine how we perceive our environment and design our financial systems, laws and business models. In short, they shape and create new horizons for the development of social, economic and industrial activity.

Open Codes is conceived as an experimental space for inspirational meetings, where the creation of knowledge about understanding computer codes and artistic approaches occurs in a single place. It is an attempt to interact with the realities of today and show the perspectives and lines of development of the future in order to better understand the world in which we live: a global data field. The exhibition, accompanied by a public program that includes workshops, conferences and film screenings, proposes a new concept that breaks with rigid structures, developing a free access knowledge platform and inviting you to experience the exhibition hall as an open space for thought destined to exchange and acquire knowledge and a new collaboration format.

Open Codes. We are Data in Azkuna Zentroa is a satellite exhibition of Open CodesZKM  | Centro de Arte y Medios, Karlsruhe, Germany, which is developed in evolutionary versions.
