Networked Disruption — Exhibition Catalogue

The catalogue of the exhibition Networked Disruption: Rethinking Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism and Business curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli and presented in spring 2015 at Škuc Gallery in Ljubljana and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka. The exhibition involved actors who directly engage with hacktivism, art, civil liberties and social networking to expose the contradictions of capitalistic logics and power systems and operate at the convergence of business and art, becoming key to unleashing the paradoxes of the social networking phenomenon. In the business world, a disruption is an unexpected innovation that comes from within the market itself. In the art and activist field, disruption means to generate unpredictable practices and interventions which play within the systems under scrutiny. Nowadays even business is adopting hacker and artistic strategies of disruption, what is the response given by artists and hackers?
