 >> Digital Death

Accompanying the opening of the exhibition Make Love, Not Art., there were three presentations. They shed light on digital life in cyberspace, which can end with the expunction of data, oblivion or the death of online identity.

Ida Hiršenfelder considered digital death as a political and aesthetic statement in works of art and the idea of eternity of online life as an absurd desire to archive everything that exists.

Gordan Savičić – who, as part of the project Web 2.0 Suicide Machine, enabled the users of the social network to erase their entire profile to secure their right to privacy and free management of digital life – discussed the issue of persistence of online identity in social networks.

Igor Štromajer presented the incentives for the project Expunction and the problem of archiving online works of art.
