tag ties & affective spies

On the social networking front….The National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMET) in Athens, Greece, presents Tag ties & effective spies, an online exhibition of internet art that takes a critical look at social networking. From the exhibition website:

Tag ties & affective spies is a critical approach on the social media of our times. What happens  when we are “tagging” , “posting” and “sharing” our experiences and opinions  in platforms such as those of Facebook, YouTube, flickr or del.icio.us? Are we  really connecting and interacting or are we also forming the content and the structure of the social web itself? The online works included, highlight the controversies of the web 2.0, commenting on the constant balancing between order and chaos, democracy and adhocracy, exposure and exploitation that it presents.

Curated by Daphne Dragona, the exhibition features works by Alessandro Ludovico , Christophe Bruno , Daphne Dragona, Gregory Chatonsky, Jodi, Jonathan Harris, Juan Martin Prada, Les Liens Invisibles, Paolo Cirio, Personal Cinema, Ramsay Stirling, Sep Kamvar, The erasers, and Wayne Clements. (Via Rhizome).

Marisa Olsen at Rhizome has a useful and generously-linked write-up on the show.
