Propaganda In The Internet Age
What does propaganda in the Internet age look like? Daniel van der Velden will show footage from Metahaven's debut feature film The Sprawl. In an interview with Christy Lange, he gives insights into the film’s trajectory and explains how Metahaven uses graphic design, identity branding, and product development as a means to investigate existing commercial and political power structures.
The Sprawl is an immersive video installation that explores the mutation of propaganda in the age of social media. The project investigates the recent Ebola outbreak, the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, and the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) through the internet and traditional news media. Unlike previous eras, where the state continuously enforces one propagandistic message to the public, the example of these three crises reveals how propaganda now exists within a horizontal field of instant, multiple messages.
