Designing Truth.png

Dear Colleagues,

I'm pleased to remind you that the event coorganized by AUTOMEDIAS.ORG  to be held on July 17, 2023, from 9am to 5.10pm (PDT), at the University of California, Berkeley, entitled :
"Designing Truth. From Truth(s) Regime(s) to Exosomatization"


The aim of this symposium is twofold. Firstly, it will attempt to analyze the problems associated with post-truth (disinformation, misinformation, fake-news, conspiracy theories, etc.) on digital social networks, not as the consequence of bad citizen behavior on the networks that should be moderated, regulated and banned, but as the negative effect of the globalizing imperialist strategy of big-tech that does not recognize locality as a variable in expressions of truth. In response to this analysis, the second challenge will be to promote the figure of the automedia and the creative process of exosomatization in platform design as an alternative concept for overcoming the opposition between locality and globality, in order to resolve the political and epistemic tensions grouped under the name of post-truth. The aim is to rethink the concepts and production processes of digital social networks based on the cultural, social and geographical references of a given territory, with awareness of its singularity and its epistemic limits.

This event is organized by AUTOMEDIAS.ORG, co-produced by the NEST project and the Townsend Center for the Humanities, and hosted by Jacob Institute for Design Innovation, in partnership with the Department of Rhetoric.

The colloquium will take place in person at University of California, Berkeley and online. So it will therefore be possible to follow the symposium in Paris on Zoom from 6 p.m. to 2:02 a.m. by registering on this form.

You can find more information on Jacob Institute for Design Innovation website about the program, the biographies and the argument of the colloquium.

Looking forward to meeting you!
