The internet, including social media, is introducing new perspectives, perceptions and orderings of the world. We function in a world mediated by technology, where the boundaries of the physical and virtual are blurred. The relationships between the structure and functioning of social platforms and art seem to be of particular interest with regard to the shape of modern culture. The internet ceases to be just an artistic medium but also a part of the art world. This phenomenon is a two-way relationship: on one hand, artists functioning in the culture of the internet change its architecture, and on the other, the internet—including social media—has an influence on the visual language of art, co-creating a new aesthetic.

Art often serves as a "litmus test" for socio-cultural reality or as an "early alarm system," anticipating certain changes and diagnosing them much earlier than socio-cultural theory. It very often also communicates or works out new solutions.

The Things to Learn from Facebook exhibition subtly outlines a picture of the interrelated nature of the internet and the art world and of their mutual interactions.

Project organized by the Arsenal Gallery, Białystok, Poland
