Art project against hate

Posted by Jürgen Novotny in Allgemein on Februar 1, 2024

With my art project “Hate or… there is always an alternative” I am launching a campaign against hate speech and digital violence online.

The increasing hate in social networks can lead to fear, insecurity, emotional stress and alienation from society. I think it’s important to be aware of how your own online activities affect your emotional well-being and, if necessary, to develop strategies to protect yourself – such as withdrawing from stressful discussions or the targeted promotion of positive content.

I see the latter as the goal of my “Hate or” art project: not to ignore hate where it occurs, but to actively counter it with positive and consistent messages. Hate or… why not do someting else? Quite idealistic, but it’s always worth a try. Isn’t it?
