description
together with the people of dieburg, we created a single fictive profile of a “dieburger”. our main goal is to raise awareness of being exploited in digital media and how to “fight back”. on the workshop, the citizens of dieburg filled out a blank facebook template on a board that we later used for creating the fictive profile. therefore, the art piece consists of given random information such as name, birth date, occupation, address etc. after filling out the facebook profile, we took a picture of each participant and used it for generating a new profile picture of the fictive citizen. during the exhibition, the participants post something on facebook, posting as the fictive citizen of dieburg.
