Clusterduck is an interdisciplinary collective working at the crossroads of research, design and digital subcultures, focusing on the processes and actors behind the creation of Internet related content. Describing themselves as “the weird kid staring at you from across the virtual schoolyard”, Clusterduck was born out of the hybridization of online and real-life interactions and their production merges the usual definitions of agit-prop, curators, researchers, and artists, into a creative collective very much in tune with ongoing transformations of current digital cultures, especially when the underground messes up with the popular, and vice-versa.
At The Influencers 2019 Clusterduck will present their most recent research about the bizarre and often awkward ways internet cultures are making politization visible, and how it mutates into something unrecognizable or obscene. Clusterduck will introduce these topics in a lecture (check the program here) and, on Saturday October 26th, in an open think-tank session.
The Clusterduck collective is also the author of the visual image of The Influencers 2019, together with a network of anonymous badass collaborators from the depths of the internet.
