Artists speak about their work adressing a public value driven internet

Can you be an artist and an activist? The artists Roos Groothuizen, Dani Ploeger and Spideralex talk about their work and battle for a public values driven internet.

How do they see their role as artists? What impact are they aiming for? Do they see themselves primarily as artists or more as activists who want to bring about social change?


  • Roos Groothuizen, is an artist and designer who cares about digital rights, fascinated with the unfair distribution of information, and the systematic discrimination by online algorithms.
  • Dani Ploeger focuses on the human body in connection with technology, sexuality and consumer culture.
  • Spideralex is a hacktivistic cyberfeminist involved in the development of technological sovereignty initiatives and the relationship between gender and ICT.
