Panel 2 – The Future Web (in French)
The web has made so many things easier for people that we often forget what it was like before it came into our lives. For more than two decades, we have been populating the web with all sort of things, including persuasive ads and social media networks whose algorithms are used for the benefit of a few. We are so dependent on the current web, so used to being controlled in return for free products and services, and we have so little understanding of how our brain works when confronted with unprecedented situations, that it is difficult for people to question how the web should really be like and what digital rights should be in place to protect us.
This session wants to join in the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web by inviting artists, researchers and curators to explore, question and deconstruct the intricacies of the Internet, and to discuss how the web has evolved since its inception in 1989 and what future it might hold.
Panel session curate in collaboration with Nicolas Nova. Moderation: Nicolas Nova.
