Exhibition “Identifikuj me/Identify me”
Author: Darija Medić
Opening: 17. December at 19h
Location: G12HUB Belgrade, Serbia
Duration: 17-22. December 2015
The interdisciplinary project Identifikuj me (Identify me) is a public educational program that researches the influence of the development of communication technologies, and above all, their role in the creation, dynamics and expression of social identities (gender, political, subcultural).
As the Internet fast forwards into every aspect of life, and a growing number of people have access to it on an everyday basis, with the development of ICT, the importance of documenting and archiving diigital practices increases. The dynamics of expressing and experiencing personal and group identities with the advancement of technologies can only be understood when digital material becomes tangible and accessible, and the accessibility of data varies over time and service, becoming an increasing issue within Internet governance debates and laws. The project Identifikuj me collects the experience and works of different social science, art, technology an activism individuals and collectives into an interdisciplinary exhibition, publication and discussion, with the intent of publicly opening these questions from diverse contexts, historic as well as contemporary, and shed light on identity and privacy challenges, borders and shapes in the technological society of today. Spaces of identity practices will include topics such as anonymity as identity, offering potential for collectivity, which in return questions notions of authorship, cenzorship as forced identity, including various TOS policies, the question of personal data as identity in regards to privacy vs profit, conflict as identity, especially in the context of growing online misogyny, the technological aspect of gamifying personal identity practices and prosumption, as well as changing perceptions on hacker identities over time.
