Anonymous: Shared Identity in the Era of Global Networks

CuratingYouTube presents: Anonymous: Shared Identity in the Era of Global Networks — Online Exhibition Curated by Sakrowski with support from Ute Fischer:

‘Anonymous’ is applying the medium ‘web video’ in order to announce its activities taking place on the Internet and in real space, as well as call for others to participate. Thus, the videos should be seen as an important interface between the Internet and the so-called real world. Continue reading
