Coolstof: Operation Earnest Voice

As part of the Kunstblock performance art program Coolstof, V2_ & Jonas Lund presented 'Operation Earnest Voice'.

Feb 2018
18:00 to 21:00

Operation Earnest Voice is a performative installation that uses social media to disrupt, influence and manipulate public opinion and discourse in Rotterdam. The performance takes place both online and offline, with a group of performers set up in click farm fashion and given control over numerous social media accounts. The offline audience at V2_ will witness the manipulative power of collective social media action at work, as they look over the shoulders of performers carrying out their business of attention-capturing and persuasion.

Operation Earnest Voice was developed in a collaboration between Jonas Lund & V2_.
