Publisher's description: How is the nature of power and trust changing in the age of the Internet? Exploring the dark underworld of SPAM -- online spam emails, advance-fee frauds and scam messages -- Beirut- and Paris-based Lebanese filmmakers / visual artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige create mixed-media installations that are part detective, part artistic. Installation shots, film stills, texts, and stories following spammers' elaborate webs that the duo has collected since 1999 illustrate how personal narratives are formed and articulated in a post-digital age. This intriguing exhibition catalog is dense with information, including discussions by leading scholars, theorists, writers, artists and curators on power, trust and changing notions of faith in the Internet age. For the past 15 years, Hadjithomas and Joreige have focused on Lebanese images, representations and history while questioning the fabrication of imaginaries through intertwining cinematic and visual images. Published in conjunction with MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; Villa Arson, Nice; and HOME, Manchester.
