Platform Imaginaries
On self-driving cars and the new mobility

Waze, Car2Go, Uber, ViaVan, Here and Google Maps are amongst some of the most popular mapping technologies that support Amsterdam city life. They allow people to move efficiently around a city; they dynamically regulate the city’s chaos with a tap of a smartphone. In this edition of Platform Imaginaries we reflect on the way platforms are changing mobility in and around the urban environment with presentations from UvA lecturer and researcher Alex Gekker, Gerrit Rietveld Academie’s artistic researchers Esther Polak and Ivar Van Bekkum, and as moderator author of ‘The Platform Society. Public values in a Connective World’ Martijn de Waal.

Rethinking Airbnb and other dominant technologies

Platforms like Airbnb, Uber and Thuisbezorgd are amongst the most popular technologies that support urban living. They allow people to rent a room, hire a car, or have food delivered to their doorstep; they regulate the city’s chaos with a tap of a smartphone. During this event, we will reflect on the ways platforms incorporate state-like logic and effects, and will incite your imagination to come up with alternatives for these dominant and dominating technologies.
