Miss data and the Israeli Pirates

Miss data (Tsila Hassine) examines the shifts in contemporary culture brought up by accelerated digitalization processes. Her works question the unbearable lightness of connectivity, and negotiate the price of remaining constantly on. She earned an MFA in Media Design from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and was a research fellow at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Paris Sorbonne University. Her work has been exhibited at many venues and festivals. Tal Messing and Yoav Lifshitz are theoreticians, lectors, creators, and curators, and are also the founders of the Pirate Party Israel. Among their projects to date is “Occupy WiFi,” a conceptual and digital activist project (August 2014, ongoing).
