Digital Detox. Protest Against Big Tech

Aren't we already far too dependent on big tech and unable to decide for ourselves what we want or don't want?

Would you like a digital detox too? Resist dependence on tech companies and resist your phone addiction? But is that still possible in this day and age? Aren't we already far too dependent on Big Tech and unable to decide for ourselves what we want or don't want? Does a digital boycott as a form of protest actually have an effect against the dominance of big tech companies and the way they affect our autonomy and privacy?

Come hear cognitive philosopher Frank van Caspel and philosopher Lotje Siffels discuss resistance to digitalisation further. Improvisational actor Vera van Berlo illustrates what a digital detox could do to you.
