Joana Moll: The Internet, Deconstructed

16. 5. 2019 from 16:00 to 19:00

Workshop with Joana Moll, an artist and a researcher based in Barcelona & Berlin dedicated to exploration of internet and its impact on our society.

Far from being a purely immaterial entity, the Internet is an extremely complex physical structure composed by a massive number of actors that have a direct and deep impact in every aspect of our daily lives. Despite its crucial role in many aspects of our society, the material and computational architectures that allow the Internet to exist are widely ignored by most of its users. Thus, this workshop seeks to critically reveal and analyze the complex network of agents that come together to configure the Internet, from submarine and underground cables to geopolitics, online tracking, surveillance and privacy. The workshop will strongly focus on uncovering and analyzing common online tracking practices used by major marketing and advertising corporations.

Joana's work critically explores the way post-capitalist narratives affect the alphabetization of machines, humans, and ecosystems. Her main research topics include Internet materiality, surveillance, online tracking and interfaces. She has lectured, performed and exhibited her work extensively around the world. Furthermore she is the co-founder of the Critical Interface Politics Research Group at HANGAR and co-founder of The Institute for the Advancement of Popular Automatisms. She is currently a visiting lecturer at Potsdam Universität and Escola Superior d’Art de Vic [Barcelona].  

The workshop will be held in English.
