Music in the Age of Spotify and Algorithms by Sukyoung Lee (Screenshot)

This Crossmedia Publishing colloquium dealt with important innovations and disruptions in today’s media. We examined how new developments in media, technology and culture are changing people’s lives for both better and worse. We looked at innovations in areas such as: video activism, dark patterns in online design, animation – through the Merz Akademie lecture series “Frontiers of Animation“, platform curation and influencer culture, trend forecasting, digital colonialism, cryptoculture and the metaverse. Students explored these topics through videos, illustrations, podcasts, websites, and instagram accounts.
