The Beacon, Antwerp
Sint Pietersvliet 7
Our daily digital lives seem rife with dangers if you go by the number of recent scandals, legal proceeding or cookie permissions that are linked to our corporate digital overlords.
With this GIST evening on Dark Patterns, we aim to provide you with some key insights on how companies extract value from consumers/citizens, often at the latter’s expense.
These Dark Patterns are embedded in websites and apps and the business models which they materialize. Their mechanics are so subtle and opaque that it takes a trained and critical eye to discern them.
Come listen to our speakers and walk away with a better understanding of the digital power asymmetries that permeate our online existence and how adversarial and reflective design try to offer an alternative approach.
