BIG BANG DATA explores the phenomenon of the information explosion we are currently experiencing. The last five years have seen the emergence of a generalized awareness among academic and scientific sectors, government agencies, businesses and culture that generating, processing and above all interpreting data is radically transforming our society.
New CCCB Beta exhibitions

The CCCB has created a space for exhibition projects that bring an integrative approach to the culture of the 21st century and the far-reaching transformations of the digital age.

BIG BANG DATA is the first in this series of proposals to address the areas of friction that these changes are introducing in the fields of science, technological and social innovation, and political, economic and cultural challenges.

For the five months of BIG BANG DATA, the expository space will also be a platform for meeting and debating this highly topical theme, with workshops, hackathons, education programmes and meetups for local and international communities.
