The Open Intelligence Lab (OILab) is an Amsterdam-based collective of interdisciplinary researchers. Its efforts concern the scrutiny of (new) political cultures on digital platforms. It attempts to do so by conducting both empirical research, based on digital methods, as well as qualitative research into the history of political thought and the cultural manifestation of political movements. Through combining both ends, the results are often academic in nature, but can also be somewhat artistic. Since data is the new oil, OILab strives to ‘extract’ this source to make sense of new forms of politics in the digital sphere.
