Memes and GIFs, selfies and Instagram filters, algorithms and neural networks, screenshots and drone images, networked feminism and online activism, content moderators, influencers and attention economies: In recent decades, the networked digital image has spawned new visual forms and cultural practices at a phenomenal speed – with unprecedented social and political ramifications. The SITUATIONS format has tracked and analysed these photographic developments over a period of five years. The projects Photographic Flux and From Print to Pixel have continued the discussion of the subject through educational programmes offered at the museum and in schools.
