Violent Consumer Media

Curated by Dani Ploeger

The ninth call for Web Residencies by Schloss Solitude and ZKM seeked to explore how consumer technologies and user-generated online content affect both the representation and performance of violence. Curator Dani Ploeger invited artists, designers, technologists, and activists to engage with the role of mobile phones, action cameras, toy drones and other digital gadgets in warfare, terrorism, hunting, and other forms of subjective violence.
