Having proclaimed the creation of the Satire Caliphate, the “Datteltäter” collective have taken to YouTube with social critiques and received its share of digital hate. With their talk in the themed track #Hatespeech on Day 2 they again shook their audience and spared no one.
Flood the web with love – that is blogger Kübra Gümüşay's appeal to her audience. In her emotional lecture "Organised Love", in the scope of the re:publica TEN #Hatespeech focus, she calls on everyone to celebrate positivity in the comments sections, forums and on Twitter.
An important topic that will be featured throughout the entire re:publica TEN is the conversation surrounding #Hatespeech and the question of how members of society interact with each other online. We want to analyse the situation together with our speakers and try and find a way out of this seemingly hopeless state of affairs.
- -Commercial content moderators are unseen, unknown internet gatekeepers, responsible for ridding social media of violent, extreme and shocking material, on behalf of major firms who require their services.
- -Muslime planen ein neues Satire-Kalifat im Herzen der YouTube-Szene und nun auch
auf der re:publica. Wir rufen auf Stage 1 den Bildungsdschihad aus und
sagen den gängigen Stereotypen gegenüber Muslimen den Kampf an.
- -Strategien für ein besseres gesellschaftliches Miteinander jenseits der Filterbubble. – Der Diskurs ist kaputt, Europa auch. Wie konnte das passieren, und warum ist vielleicht auch das Internet schuld? Das fragen wir uns auf unserem Eröffnungspanel – und halten uns selber den Spiegel vor.
- -We have all been online long enough to have encountered criticism from people whose faces we will never see. Some of it is constructive, and some if it is awful, anonymous assumptions and slurs that we do our best to ignore. Sometimes our emotions prevent us from making a distinction between that which could be helpful and that which is just plain bullying. There isn’t a cure for it. It cannot be fixed or stopped. Learning how to deal with both is a factor of life that our children will have to endure on a scale we never did, in ways we probably can’t imagine. I’ve tried and failed many times to react in the best possible way and have finally learned that “reacting” isn’t the answer. The answer is something much more fearless.
