Screen Walk with NEOZOON

Over the past ten years, NEOZOON has studied the YouTube activities of different groups online. In their Screen Walk, the artist duo will take the audience on a deep dive into the networked rabbit holes that they have encountered throughout their work. The duo’s desktop performance explores different internet phenomena and their communities and reflects on how algorithms can reinforce destructive structures offline.

In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.

NEOZOON is a female artist duo founded in 2009 in Berlin and Paris. Their work is based on the principle of collage and explores sociological questions. In their video works, the de- and recontextualization of YouTube material is a recurring element.
