Securing the Social
This two-day workshop aims at critically exploring the topos of the network as the image of nodes and links remains the invariant topological constant of data visualisation in a disparate number of domains. In particular, the notion of ‘social network’ will be looked at by discussing the development of social network analysis and graph theory through a genealogy of dispositifs of security or control. Alternative ways of thinking about the nature of the social relation diagrammed by graph theory will be explored, as well as the notion of the aesthetic and cultural ‘experience of networking’.
