This autumn, The Knight's Move has a diptych of lectures lined up: the physical city with Bradley L. Garrett, and the digital city with Mireille Hildebrandt.

Tonight Mireille Hildebrandt will explore digital space and the cityscape. Hildebrandt calls the fusion of online and offline worlds ‘the Onlife World'. She highlights the boundaries between on- and offline worlds to find out if they are becoming increasingly artificial: we have to make this distinction to retain some of our personal space. The question will be what kind of humans we may become when ‘living with algorithms' is the new normal. How can we learn to live in the Onlife World without being cynical about the upcoming smart cityscape?

The Knight's Move
The Knight's Move is a series of lectures by eminent international speakers who stand out by their unusual, enlightening and inspirational visions concerning the city, urbanity, the public domain, and community. Just as the knight moves in an atypical and unusual way across the chessboard, The Knight's Move likewise wants to cut across all disciplines and thus stimulate rethinking the city. The engaging talks are followed by a dialogue with the audience.

The Knight's Move is an initiative by Stroom Den Haag and currently organized in collaboration with LAPS Amsterdam and made possible in part by the Haagse Bluf Fonds (via Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds) and The City of The Hague.
