ALITA, Lebanon: Jbeil's Modern and Contemporary Art Museum has gathered artists from over 20 nationalities to tackle a global topic: data.MACAM recently launched its second Biennale of Contemporary Art under the theme "Universal Data," seeking to create conversation about something that has become an almost inseparable part of our daily lives. Behind the massive metal gate of the industrial hanger that the museum calls home, 60 local and international artists are showcasing multidisciplinary artworks that explore our use of and interaction with the unrelentingly digitalized universe. Artworks addressing hacking, security leaks, the fragility and manipulation of data and equal access to data are also on show, taking a look at the more sinister, less useful side of data.In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights, Schaub asked the artists to reflect on how the 12 articles apply in the digital era and how access to data has influenced our perception of the world. One work, by Lebanon's Nadine Zahreddine, displays broken number plates in the shape of Lebanon's territory, with a camera watching over it all.
