Viral Fictions

Viral Fictions

In Viral Fictions, the Forms of Ownership collective will investigate how contemporary technology and the heavily tech-integrated media landscape disseminate and perpetuate mythologies/narratives regarding 'normative' forms of economic life and associated socio-political relationships, all the while ignoring or downplaying important counterpoints.

In particular, FOO plan to interrogate/explore the normativity associated with such forms and relationships through a process of public consultation, hopefully leading to the identification of a number of radical principles that could dissolve the "zero-sum/win or lose game" lines which often form the contours of political discourse on-line. Finally, they plan to explore how tech and media could also facilitate the spreading of these ideas.

The project is realised in context of the European Media Art Platforms artist residencies 2020.
