Dismantling the Simulation

http://dismantlingthesimulation.com/about

After a year of Venezuelan student protests, guarimbas, and blackouts, our movement The goal is to dismantle the simulation  also had a year of remixing, memeing creating visual content, confronting and debating political and cultural crisis in Venezuela. Join us for a very special event, online exhibition, and panel discussion #DismantlingTheSimulation, simultaneously occuring in #nyc #ccs #paris. Three cities one goal!

Dismantling the simulation is born, as an experimental 2.0 platform. It appropriates the already existing social platform and subverts in order to deconstruct visual production, assuming a critical posture confronting the institutionalized media content. Its production operates horizontally, with no controls nor hierarchies. In short, it is a collective rebel action that seeks to question and dismantle the discourses and the information distribution schemes operating in Venezuela.
