Biography

Julia Janssen ('94) is an Amsterdam based artist, designer and Researcher with a background in Grapic Design (ArtEZ Institute of Arts, Arnhem 2012-2016)

 

During Art school, Janssen developed an interest in data and technology: user- and privacy policies, our relationship with social media, and alternative economics.

 

With her graduation project, Bank of Online Humanity (2016), she stated, "We have been enslaved by the data business," pointing to the economic value of personal data and the monetization of people's attention. This project won the Crypto Design Award, audience vote. From that moment, she dedicated her practice as an artist to data sovereignty and the future of the Onternet.

 

In 2017 she received a grant for Talent Development from Creative Fund NL and a Pionier Grant from SIDN fund for Innovation and Internet. Fifteen months of research about data economics resulted in The Attention Fair – An installation with 12 games, visuals, and experiments about the value of (personal).

 

In 2019 she started the reading out loud performance' 0.0146 seconds' – collectively, we are reading and recording 835 privacy policies that got accepted with just one click on 'got it.' This project shows the fragile position of the internet user and the manipulative strategies of Internet economics.

 

In 2020, she started the podcast Achter de klik | Behind the Click, because the tour with 0.0146 seconds got cancelled due to COVID-19.
