what kind of a thing is a database?

a discussion with jan gerber [pirate cinema], sebastian luetgert [pirate cinema], kobe matthys [agency], moderated by andreas broeckmann

databases are becoming an increasingly important tool for accessing and structuring knowledge. in the age of google and mysql, items that do not feature prominently in databases can easily be forgotten.

the artist kobe matthys from brussels, currently in residence at tesla, is working on an extensive database about international and historical legal cases concerning copyright legislation. on this evening, he will discuss some of the practical and theoretical issues concerning the structuring of knowledge in databases, incl.

- cosmologies, ontologies, taxonomies, classifications, keywords,...

- examples of implementations of 'idiosyncrasies'

- quantitative work, the copyrighting of databases

- archives, museums, publications, deposits, registers, databases,...
