Our fourth edition of Brave New World will take place in the brand new museum of Naturalis Biodiversity Center.
Our moderator Jim Stolze is right in the centre of innovation and technology. Besides being a tech-entrepeneur, he is also a journalist. Brave New World is publishing two of his interesting columns, which were formerly published in the Dutch financial paper FD (‘Financial Times’). This is the second one, enjoy!
Next to the amazing main program, Brave New World now also presents interesting extra’s for our participants. These range from intriguing art work to a job agency for humans and robots. Here are the details.
There is an intricate connection between technological development, philosophical thought, political decisions and democracy. Will what is technologically possible always come about, or can legislators still exercise control and influence developments? Will society be able to keep up with fast-paced technological innovation? And how?
Brave New World is going to host the Institute of Human Obsolescence (IoHO) from the 7th until the 11th of November at the Stadsgehoorzaal Leiden. We are also proud to announce that during this period, the IoHO is going to present three new installations that complete the series Data Production Labour. In addition, they are going to host workshops analysing aspects of daily usage of technology.

We are proud to introduce our new media partner to you: the Dutch magazine Vrij Nederland. They will not be partnering up by giving away free advertising space or writing an article about our event. But they will actually be dedicating their whole November issue to Brave New World!
On the 8th of November, Brave New World will host an Impact Café together with our partner ASTP Proton. This Humanities Impact Hub based-workshop, titled “Upgrade yourself!?”, is about how technology affects human life and which human perspectives should be considered by technology developers when it comes to biohacking, implanted chips, antennas and much more.
