> directed by Robert Kenner, based on the book "Merchants of Doubt" by
> historians of science Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.
> The second event of the "Art & Evidence" series by Disruption Network
> Lab 2016 investigates the political, social and ethical dimensions of
> ignorance, manifested as different forms of what has been termed
> "nonknowledge". It will shed light on how, why and when knowledge does
> not come to be, disappears or is suppressed, the possible advantages and
> disadvantages related to the creation or maintenance of ignorance and
> doubt, and how the underlying strategies and dynamics can be unveiled
> and unmade.
> Especially in the context of the current political scenario that we are
> witnessing, the study and closer look at strategies behind the
> deliberate creation and spreading of ignorance has gained more
> importance than ever if we want to understand the reasons for the
> growing success of populist campaigns. At the same time, the creation of
> doubts, suppression or selected publication of facts, and nourishing of
> controversies is building a
> constant background to the debates related to the discussions about
> climate change, carcinogenic products, conduct and publication of
> scientific research results and the role and influence of the media in it.
> A program of keynote lectures, panel discussions and a film screening
> will present artists, scientists, researchers and journalists who will
> discuss mechanisms and reasons behind knowledge that does not come to be
> or is suppressed. Discussions will center around the political,
> strategic, technological, and social uses of creating ignorance in
> social and everyday life through the manipulation and suppression of
> facts, the creation of doubt and
> uncertainty, biased reporting of the media, or even forbidden knowledge
> that is too controversial, sensitive or taboo to be studied.
