The Web Politics Trilogy

French collective challenges the dominant ideology of technological innovation and stimulates post-growth technological narratives. Founders Nicolas Maigret and Maria Roszkowska will finalise their ambitious project The Web Politics Trilogy during their Helsinki residency with m-cult in May-June 2019.

This trilogy aims to make visible the ongoing online culture wars and to expose Big Tech companies as central political agents. The project includes the critical mapping of memes circulating online, and the profiling of tech companies using the tools they deploy to profile their own users. Eventually, the research will be released as an influence campaign.

The residency will be produced within the EMAP network's residency programme 2019.
