The map Online Culture Wars is an overlay of hundreds of politicized memes, along with influential political figures and symbols. Taking the Political Compass as a framework, this cartography offers a symbolic representation of online ideological and political debates, and their growing polarization, politicization and radicalization orchestrated by different political and cultural influencers. It is designed as a discussion starter, intended to visualize and contextualize the ongoing online culture wars. The video Online Culture Wars focuses on the political instrumentalization of the tools, techniques, and infrastructures of the web, with particular attention to the social media influence ecosystem, and online manipulation of opinion. It exposes some practices broadly used for online propaganda, as well as creative responses that they trigger in civil society.
