Location: V2_, Eendrachsstraat 12

Operation Earnest Voice is a performative installation that uses social media to influence public opinion in Rotterdam. The performance takes place both online and offline. A group of performers together form one click farm-like whole and has control over various social media channels. The audience at V2_ witnesses the manipulative power of the collective social media campaign as they look over the shoulders of the performers. The task of the performers is to attract attention to these channels and to convince people that they are right. V2_'s project for Coolstof, Operation Earnest Voice is a work of the Swedish artist Jonas Lund who makes critical work on networked systems and technological innovations.
