Opening 30th September 2021, 6 - 9pm
1st - 10th October 2021, 1:30 - 6:00 pm, Thursday - Sunday
[Senne], Rue de la Senne 19, 1000 Brussels, Belgium

[Senne] is thrilled to present Algorithmic Bias, a group exhibition featuring new and previous works from 13 international artists, including Zach Blas, Joy Buolamwini , Bob Bicknell-Knight, Jacob Ciocci, Ami Clarke, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Stephanie Dinkins, Ben Grosser, Joel Holmberg, Esther Hovers, Claire Jervert, JODI and Lynn Hershman Leeson.

Curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight

Algorithmic Bias is an exhibition concerned with the systems and structures embedded within the internet of things, many of which were and continue to be created with an in-built bias. Algorithms have become a common tool used in the framework of social media platforms, created by unknown coders, reinforcing social biases of race, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity. The works in the exhibition explore and critique the procedurally generated invisible rules that control our online and offline lives.

The exhibition is accompanied by a short book that's 64 pages, consisting of all the artworks in the exhibition, alongside an introductory text by Bob Bicknell-Knight.
