Networking 2.0: An Aesthetic, Technological and Social Critique of Collective Art. This research proposes to analyze the roots of artistic practices and social intervention based on both analog and digital networked art, showing that the current artistic challenge of the Web 2.0 platforms lies in the invention of new courses of action and new contents developed by grassroots communities. The aim is to investigate how networking practices are able to change the model of production of Internet contents and artistic creations, connecting the development of hacker ethics with the creation of Web 2.0 social networking platforms. A thread that connects networked art such as mail art, culture jamming and hacker art with Web 2.0 social practices.
