Gilberto Vieira is co-founder and CEO of data_labe (datalabe.org), a data organization in Maré, one of the biggest Brazilian favelas. The lab is run by young favela's residents who work by searching, analyzing and visualizing data on gender, race, education, territory and digital rights. In the center of the projects is the issue of constructing an imaginary about cities and the people who live in them. Gilberto is also PhD student in Urban Studies and researches the centrality of urban peripheries in the era of data coloniality.
Gilberto Vieira's participation at re:publica 22 is kindly made possible by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
