Who controls our personal data and how? In the era of big data and surveillance capitalism, these questions stand at the heart of public and academic discourses. The era of big data and surveillance capitalism is characterized by a unique structuring of institutions, premises and social relations. New opportunities for prosperity, well-being and cooperation become imaginable, but at the same time, there are new opportunities for exploitation and oppression, as well as resistance and alternatives. The concept of privacy lies at the heart of this intersection between prosperity, exploitation and resistance.

The interdisciplinary research group Privacy and Data Capitalism explores the concept of privacy and its connection to various political, technological, legal, social, economic, scientific, artistic and ethical models and perceptions.
