Currently very little data – excepting inaccessible user data – is available on the migrants living and working in this remote and often overlooked area. Het Nieuwe Instituut and the International New Town Institute (INTI) collaborated with Impact Hub Shenzhen to independently collect quantitative and qualitative data anonymously. Through interviews and online questionnaires, the researchers collected structural and semi-structural data from 350 people living and working in Dalang to provide genuine insights into the area, as well as a richer sense of its human interactions, needs and network.

Het Nieuwe Instituut and the International New Town Institute joined forces by combining extensive working experience in Shenzhen with knowledge on data and the smart society in a research proposal curated by Linda Vlassenrood. The impact of datafication on society and the human environment is all-pervasive. Yet the threats and opportunities it presents for urban life are still not being sufficiently recognized by design disciplines like architecture and urban planning. 

Dalang Fever 3 consists of research, an exhibition during the 2019 Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture and a workshop by independent curator Linda Vlassenrood, with exhibition design and graphics by Koehorst in ‘t Veld.
