Face to Facebook @ The Photographers’ Gallery, Sep 28

, 26 September 2014

This Sunday, Paolo Cirio and Alessandro Ludovico join forces to discuss their collaborative project Face to Facebook at London’s The Photographers’ Gallery, September 28 at 4pm.

While artist Paolo Cirio brings his trademark visuals to the project – often drawing on themes of copyright, privacy and militarism – artist, media critic and Neural-founder Alessandro Ludovico draws on his English & Media Ph.D. and recent book, Post-Digital Print: The Mutation of Publishing Since 1894, to discuss “facial recognition, data scraping and privacy on social media platforms”.

The Face to Facebook project – which comes as the third work in a series titled The Hacking Monopolism Trilogy – has its own domain and an entire website dedicated to the theory and methodology behind the works, based out of a Facebook privacy scandal summarized in the video below.
