Tag ties & affective spies
, the recent online event at the National museum of contemporary art, is a critical approach on the social media of our times. What happens when we are “tagging” , “posting” and “sharing” our experiences and opinions in platforms such as those of Facebook, YouTube, flickr or del.icio.us? Are we really connecting and interacting or are we also forming the content and the structure of the social web itself? The online works included, highlight the controversies of the web 2.0, commenting on the constant balancing between order and chaos, democracy and adhocracy, exposure and exploitation that it presents.
We, in Topos books, strongly recommend to our readers this on line event for its insight and its in-depth approach to issues we usually take for granted.
