In this course, participants will explore Aarhus 2017 related events to learn about how cultural analysis might be enacted in 21st century settings where digital and analog forms blur, where local and global networks collide, and because of this, studying any phenomenon is therefore a complex challenge. Through a combination of field observations, data gathering, modelling, analysis, and prototyping the aim is to introduce and develop new tools and methods for understanding and communicating about cultural experiences in the age of Big Data. Particularly, we are interested in how the production and collection of data has become an inevitable part of any cultural institution, yet it is unclear what counts as data, what the data is (or can be) actually used for, and how various stakeholders deal with broken data, missing data, surplus data, etc. Cities and regions, cultural institutions and organisations, as well as specific industries and economies have a strong interest in developing new models for organising and making sense of such data.
