The Post Social Media Club is a collaborative research project that explores and speculates on alternative digital futures.



This collaborative project invited 25 European creatives of mixed disciplines from Sweden, Greece, Serbia, France and Turkey to participate in a series of expert-led design masterclasses, engage in a weeklong production-based residency/hackathon in Sweden and finally, host five simultaneous exhibitions across Europe showcasing alternative futures.

The project was led by STPLN (SE) partnered with four creative hubs Volumes (FR), Nova Iskra (SR), ATÖLYE (TR) and bios (GR) and ran from 2020-2022.



The project was divided into three modules.
