Secrets to Post-Internet Success From DIS's Scary Berlin Biennale | Art for Sale | Artspace
- Since the Berlin Biennale opened at the beginning of last month, a few seismic things have happened. A foiled military coup just took place in Turkey, for starters, while the Brexit put the future of the E.U. in question, a police assassin brought racial tensions in the United States to a height unseen in a generation, and ISIS claimed a torrent of lethal terrorist attacks on a Nice boulevard, in an Orlando gay club, in an Istanbul airport, and across Bangladesh, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. In the meantime, Amazon celebrated its own holiday (Prime Day), augmented reality sent millions of Pokemon fans into the streets in search of fictional animals, and Facebook changed the way the world gets the news with a tweak of its algorithm. By the way, a reality TV star is running for the U.S. presidency on a surging tide of recriminatory hate.
