After Social Networks [JJ2] hybridizes creation and research practices, in order to think about the status of user-generated content, as well as the media ecosystem in which they are embedded. It is composed of artists and researchers who are committed to design encounters between various disciplines, imaginaries and practices. The purpose of After Social Networks is to establish a participatory and freely accessible database for artistic works online by publishing texts, videos or interviews.
