Conducted by Winnie Soon, Hong Kong-based artist and researcher in the area of network culture and data aesthetics whose project explores the performativity of networked data through computation art, the workshop will introduce an experimental project – Undo Facebook which aims to open up the politics of knowledge, allowing the participants to experience the process of knowledge production and circulation without authoritative control by institutions.

The first part of the workshop will showcase some of the marginalized knowledge and will explore how knowledge is being shaped through different agencies. The second part of the workshop will experience the possibility of changing the current Facebook interface, such as adding a dislike button or hiding the number of likes through experimenting various web browser add-ons. It stimulates the participants to rethink the process of knowledge creation and circulation.
