Pantalla Global, an upcoming exhibit at the CCCB in Barcelona, explores the roles of screens in our lives. And of course a major part of that is the role WE play in generating and sharing all sorts of content. With the exhibit, they’ve created a platform for soliciting and broadcasting content submitted by the public and creative partners. It’s nicely planned, with themes for people to contribute content to, and a complimentary web interface to collect contributions –
History / Sports / Advertising / Excess / Play / Surveillance / Politics
The exhibit recognises that people power / publicly generated content is a major part of our media lives today and this is a smart way to both highlight and exemplify the phenomenon.
It’s ‘incubating’ right now – they’re collecting video submissions (you can do that here). The exhibition will run from 24, January to 27, May 2012.
P.S. The CCCB has a fantastic, addictive bookshop. You were warned…
