about

Open Intelligence Lab or OILab is an Amsterdam-based collective of interdisciplinary scholars scrutinising online political subcultures on the fringe and lesser-researched corners of the Web. It does so by conducting empirical research based on digital methods as well as qualitative theoretical research. Through combining both, OILab follows the provocation that data is the new oil in order to make sense of new political currents in the digital sphere. The results are usually papers and public appearances, but also take the form of more artistic projects. For write-ups of shorter projects, we also maintain a blog.
