Goethe Institut launches the second part of their collaborative mini-series with Banner Repeater, titled Publishing as Process and taking place at the London location on November 18 .

The series concentrates on exhibition and publishing in the digital age with a programme of readings and panel discussions addressing how the two fields are effected by the “digitalisation and the distribution channels the internet provides”, including Ché Zara BlomfieldAlessandro LudovicoYuri Pattison, and Ami Clarke from Banner Repeater as a moderator.

Whereas the series’ first event, Institutionalising the Digital, featured a take-over of the Goethe-Institut’s website, Publishing as Process will materialize as a publication for Banner Repeater’s UN-PUBLISH series.

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.
