89plus and the LUMA Foundation are pleased to announce the second 89plus exhibition ‘Filter Bubble’ at the LUMA Westbau exhibition space within Löwenbräukunst in Zürich, Switzerland. The exhibition is co-curated by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Coined by Internet activist Eli Pariser in his 2011 book, “The Filter Bubble”, he designates the way Internet users are increasingly directed to a personalized information landscape through an algorithmic editing of web content. ‘Filter Bubble’ marks 89plus’s interest in translating three years of research into an exhibition format harnessing the reflective nature of its long-term inquiry. In presenting work by over 40 international artists, writers and technologists, ‘Filter Bubble’ introduces a selection of pointed responses to the perennial dilemma of blissful ignorance, paradoxically heightened by the pursuit of relevance in an ever-growing mass of data.
