Be Democracy on Twitter
26 May 2014 10.00 - 23 November 2014 23.00
The exhibition Be Democracy explores how social media are changing society and challenging power. As an extension of the exhibition we invite guest editors to use their voice on Twitter @BeDemocracy throughout the exhibition period.
Can social media lead to more democracy? What cause are you willing to fight for? What happens when ordinary people replace journalists? When is it acceptable for the authorities to keep us under surveillance? These are only a few of the questions we ask in the exhibition.
Every week from 26 May through out the exhibition period the Twitter account has had a new curator. Who used their voice and what did they say? Check out Be Democracy on Twitter! Read about the guest editors below:
Language is very powerful. Language does not just describe reality. Language creates the reality it describes.” – Desmond Tutu, 1984 Nobel Peace Prize
