In a year that has gone from one extreme to the next, the artists in For Your Pleasure explore why TikTok has taken the world by storm. With the US election now looming, we are once again witnessing a presidential race tangled up in modern day propaganda, dangerous echo chambers, fake news and metadata. Never before has the world been so simultaneously aware of current events and so quick to unite individuals against a common enemy like the one million TikTokers who trolled Trump’s Tulsa rally by buying tickets and not showing up. If there’s a cause you want to get behind- you can be sure to find your people on TikTok, but, who’s afraid of the algorithm?
