The Agency deals with extremism and radicalisation in the internet’s filter bubbles and echo chambers. How do algorithms contribute to discrimination? What part does a body of thought that originated in digital spaces such as “4chan” or “Breitbart News” play in the emergence and exercise of violence – online as well as offline? BOYS SPACE is an immersive performance in the work cycle “Neue Männer*bewegung” (“New Men’s* Movement”). It is also, simultaneously, a server on the group chat app Discord, in which the spectators* organize themselves for their exit from patriarchy. Online as well as offline, an alternative space comes up, geared towards enabling the exit from patriarchal maleness. “Boys Will Be Boys” has lost its dogmatic value here. Spectators* encounter one another as “male characters”, meeting their “empathy partners”, listening for the confessions of other users*. They actively participate in the creation of the BOYS SPACE.
You will experience the BOYS SPACE performance from your home. You will need an internet-enabled computer and a pair of headphones to participate.
