The influential exhibition, "Decision Making: The Decisive Instant" curated by Dominique Moulon and Alain Thibault, is produced by the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris and presented as part of the official programme of Némo – International Biennial of Digital Arts of the Île-de-France Region.

Decisions are the result of complex cognitive processes. However, our current world gradually relies on machines to make decisions automatically based on big data and automatic algorithms. This exhibition collects outstanding experiencing artworks that critic the decision making based on the use of private personal data and decisional algorithms (e.g., the potential violation of human rights in utilizing personal data).

Our CMA Assistant Professor Varvara Guljajeva's artwork HUMANS NEED NOT TO COUNT that was created together with Mar Canet Sola (duo's artist name Varvara & Mar), together with the artworks from other fourteen world-class artists from Canada, Estonia, France, Germany, Norway and Spain, reveals the decision-making processes hidden from the general public's view and transports the audience to an immediate future that still belongs to our humankind.
