Fear of Content

Digital platform

An overflowing inbox. Unsolicited subscriptions. A 24-hour news cycle. But you still find yourself constantly refreshing your notifications. The intoxication driven by the steady flow of must-read content is a condition that has come to define our daily lives. Stolen from a seminal essay by Rob Horning of 2015, Fear of Content is the title co-opted by the 9th Berlin Biennale for its digital platform: a continuous feed of essays, interviews, digital projects, content, and more content.
