Between the 10th and 13th of January, the 12 workers come together to work with one political goal in mind, to collaboratively develop a media narrative / campaign to reverse Brexit by using a wide range of tactics to manipulate the public opinion, and create new narratives that aim to disrupt the current political debate.

Exhibition and residency in Cyprus. Deadline: Dec. 14, 2018

NeMe is pleased to announce this open call for the selection of 10 applicants to be represented in the exhibition with one work each. Each of those selected will be paid a small fee.

The call is open to artists, interdisciplinary collectives, researchers, and data visualisers.
Digitality has become an integrated experience, a depiction of our complex and hierarchical social reality. Although, by now, many users have become aware of the large degree Big Data involves the vigorous use of algorithms for analytics as well as software for surveillance, it has not curbed the mass use of social media. In fact, mass networking on social media has become the cultural tool for establishing a sense of intimacy despite the unease of personal disclosure. Real issues such as human rights abuses, homelessness or climate change cannot contest viral videos, fake news, cute pets and more recently, the controversial obsession with “dark tourism” selfies. We are informed by algorithms on who we are, selective advertisements help us to become skilled actors in our own self shaping. Users’ social activities are mined as data, making possible real-time tracking and monitoring. This colonisation of personal data is already manipulating social media content. Targeted personalisation on the Internet today purges reality with users becoming dehumanised commodities existing in a fabricated unreality. The control of the coloniser is now defined by the monopoly of the data colonised.
Areas of interest
Social Media Self shaping, Online personal and group identity, Corporate data mining, Biological labour versus human generated data labour, Artificial Intelligence, Colonisation of humans by non-human actors, Human obsolescence, Unpaid data workers, Dark tourism, Smart cities and tools of surveillance, Social and political implications on data mining human behaviours.

Deadline: December 14, 2018. Applications received after this date will not be accepted.
Exhibition dates: 15/02/2019-15/03/2019
Residency dates: 08/02/2019-18/02/2019 (approximate)
