What happens when we increasingly rely on social media and the web for nearly all our information? What information do we see, and what do we miss? How do we know if a picture or a tweet is genuine or truthful? And what can we do if we can’t be sure?
The Glass Room is a pop-up intervention that provokes people to think about how technology impacts society, and their lives. It covers various topics including data privacy, big tech, the internet of things, and the most recent edition, misinformation.
The project started in 2016 as a pop-up exhibition in Berlin about data and privacy, since then it has expanded into a global project with over 375 exhibitions worldwide. This exhibition explores what misinformation is why it’s shared and how it spreads. Find out how we, the individual users, take part through our many clicks, likes and shares.
Learn about the business models, design practices and habits that create an environment where misinformation can spread or go viral. And understand how misinformation becomes normalised, and how the decisions made by the gatekeepers of technologies can influence our behaviours and opinions.
