Against the totality of networks and corporately owned social media, what are workable strategies and ethical approaches that allow for alternative ways for our social life to emerge?
In the international symposium De-platformization, Ethics and Alternative Social Media, we seek to open a discussion, which will not only critically discuss platforms and commercial social media, but explore possibilities of the commons through a number of practical and theoretical positions, public discussion and hands on workshop.
We know and repeatedly analyze a host of issues with commercial social media and digital labour, but little attention is paid to efforts at building alternatives, such as community-run social media and other forms of de-platformization.
The online streaming of the symposium De-platformization, Ethics and Alternative Social Media was organised by Display&Artyčok.TV on September 25th, 2020.
