Lecture: Art against Facebook
Graffiti in the ruins of the feed and the party-info-capital is emigrating
There is graffiti in the ruins of the feed and the event-info-capital is emigrating.
Currently Facebook has a tight grip on the cultural scene with its events-calendar and with Instagram as a spectacular image feed.
But an opposition is rising. Graffiti and net-art are merging with hacking. Activists are using facebook graffiti, through circulating UTF-8 textbombs that cross the layout of the feed.
The Berlin network Reclaim Club Culture meanwhile is calling for a Facebook Exodus. They want to motivate the club and cultural scene to support free alternatives, by moving their biggest information capital, which are the event announcements.
