“Information is a lover that doesnâ€™t speak our language, a lover we visit every day with no hope to touch, explain or understand.” (Witold Gombrowicz)
Dating Data is an exhibition of works on paper by 18 artists. Reality cannot be avoided but watching an infinite sequence of simultaneous, precise and live news reports is not enough to understand the difference between live broadcasting and death, between business and democracy. The artists included in Dating Data address our ambivalent fascination with information culture. They manipulate and process various kinds of data to produce works that confirm that we are condemned to know more and understand less.
