Data CTRL Center is a series of exhibitions, dedicated to security on the Internet. This is a large-scale regional project initiated by Goethe-Institut Ukraine, aimed at popularizing media literacy and protecting personal data on the Internet. The project was launched in October 2020 and curated by the popular science media “Kunsht”.
On December 9, a pop-up exhibition “Regain Control”, was supported by the national media literacy project “Filter”. The exhibition covers the issues of digital freedom, media literacy, cybersecurity and personal data protection.
The exhibition is placed on Khreshchatyk Street, next to the Kyiv City Council. It is available to everyone and contains 11 interactive components. They include a constructor of hype headlines, an alphabet of disinformation, a map of the largest hacker attacks in Ukraine, short audio interviews with leading experts in the field of media literacy, cells with cognitive biases and a lot of information about phishing and cyber safety for children.
“Filter is glad to support such an initiative. The exhibition “Regain Control” is an attempt to talk about digital literacy, cybersecurity and media culture in a non-standard way. We hope that both Kyiv residents and guests of the capital will use the useful tips on media literacy and personal protection in cyberspace,” Valeria Kovtun, head of the Filter project, noted.
The main goal of the exhibition is to show the importance of protecting your personal data on social networks and on the Internet and to encourage visitors to control their digital life and protect their personal data, as this is an important challenge in the modern technological world.⠀
The exhibition takes place from 9 till 24 December 2021.
The exhibition was implemented with the support of the International Relief Fund for Organizations in Culture and Education 2021, Auswärtiges Amt, Goethe-Institut Ukraine, U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, MacPaw and the National Media Literacy Project “Filter” of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.
