Echo Chambers and Bubble Breakers
Jan Skudlarek (DE), Laura Wiesböck (AT), Paul Poet (AT), and Marko Dinic (AT)
This panel explores the question of how socio-political discourses and democratic participation can shape themselves when more and more people – intensified by the consumption of so-called ‘social media’ – remain in their bubbles on their islands and drift apart instead of moving towards each other.
And: Are these bubbles purely technological or do the users themselves contribute to landing in their own echo chambers instead of openly dealing with people with different backgrounds and divergent opinions?
This panel discussion is moderated by Marko Dinic (AT) with Jan Skudlarek (DE), Laura Wiesböck (AT), and Paul Poet (AT).
The panel discussion is part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
