Built-in Values: On the Politicization of Media Platforms

Discussion with Jillian C. York, Vladan Joler, Roee Rosen and Marc Tuters, moderated by Marta Peirano

Numerous incidents of xenophobia, hatred, and racial violence in 2017 have brought to the foreground crucial questions about the role and complicity of media platforms. While steps were taken towards the removal of racist content, the terms of service and algorithmic processes involved in social engineering have hardly been addressed. Popular media platforms categorize every piece of information—the constructions of race and gender are thus inscribed directly in their systems. Considering the common example of proposed search queries and targeted ads, one comes to question how such deeply embedded biases—and, therefore, values—can change. Against the backdrop of the recent so-called politicization of media platforms, this discussion session will explore if and how other, more inclusive architectures of communication can still be imagined.
