“Instagramism” is the aesthetic of the new global digital youth classes that emerge in the early 2010s [1].
The online art experiences make all kinds of artworks to be adjusted in a highly interactive process. If an
artist is supposed to propose new ways of seeing and creating, it’s worrying when social media platforms
feel like they’re turning us all into sycophantic clones [2]. During the course, we will learn how to deal with
social media as artists with and beyond their forms and capacities.
• Different types of social media
• The 9-way-rule
• Defining topics for social media
• The perception of time in social media
• Artist vs Art
• Watching art through social media
• Defining and “measuring” art success in Social Media
• The luck and lack of Likes
• Concentration, stress, and addiction in Social Media
• How to find inspiration through direct and instant interaction with the audience

• Creating screencast videos and films
