Ars Electronica x IMPAKT
Social media platforms are feeding the raw material of youth culture directly into the nationalist populist insurgency that is currently sweeping through the planet. Evoking the fear of an existential enemy at the gates of Fortress Europe – or more often, an enemy within – this new political style is especially successful in the online culture wars. Radicalization by Design will discuss the question of whether our media are radicalizing us. In connecting us, are social media also tearing us apart? How do trolls, conspiracy theories, memes and fringe platforms impact politics today? The panel discusses issues of freedom of speech, extreme speech and deplatforming.
Speaker: Florian Cramer (DE/NL), Bharat Ganesh (US/NL), Richard Rogers (US/NL) and Dimitri Tokmetzis (NL) will discuss issues of freedom of speech, of extreme speech and deplatforming.
Moderation: Arjon Dunnewind (NL) and Marc Tuters (CA/NL)
