Kunstquartier Bethanien, Studio 1, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin
TERROR FEEDS: Inside the Fear Machine highlights the change that ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or Daesh by its Arabic language acronym) represents in how terrorism is conducted and analyses how electronic jihad and strategic messaging affects the worldwide public opinion, both in the west and in the Arab world, representing a new icon of “global jihad”. The aim of this event is to understand and to discuss how ISIS unleashed cyber jihad, as well as the strategies activists and human right advocates use to oppose this form of terror, as well as Internet censorship and surveillance.
