The Algorithmic Trading Freak Show
Exhibition of RYBN.ORG (FR)
curator: Lívia Rózsás
The Paris-based interdisciplinary collective presents it’s unusual trade algorithm collection at it’s debut exhibition in Hungary. The anonymous group was established in 2000 and since then has been creating performances, interactive and network installations. They have started their Antidatamining project in 2006, in which they use tools of data mining for depicting social and economical processes. They document and process phenomena which raise questions closely tied to globalisation and automation, like Flash Crash, according to what the stock exchange collapsed on the 6th May in 2010.
Their last solo exhibition was held in Paris, in Gaîté Lyrique in 2010 and they were residents and exhibitors of Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe. They have previously displayed their works in Linz, Berlin, San Francisco, Madrid, Montreal, Yogyakarta or Aberdeen at festivals and exhibitions which focus on new media art practices.
Their exhibition in Trafó Gallery shows through three installations the curiosities of algorithm based trading and they give an overview on the history of the automatisation of the stock exchange, from the now out of date technologies to mechanisms which enable high frequency trading.
