On November 17 in the afternoon there will be opening of Network Effects, an international exhibition confronting the political, ecological and psychological effects of today's online world. The exhibited projects investigate the online landscape of propaganda, profiling and cyberwars, and make visible the algorithmic manipulation of our experience and environment.
Combining tools of research, activism and technology, the artists of Network Effects expose and disrupt the dystopic logics of the online environment. While doing so, they also encourage us to confront its mechanisms by opening up new pathways for agency and citizenship.
The exhibition venue is Oodi, Helsinki's award-winning new central library. With its nearly 10.000 daily visitors and popular citizens' co-working spaces, Oodi is a perfect place to discuss the future of online public spaces.
