A networked art has developed, stemming from hacker movements and nourished by open code collaborative programming practices. Social media are at the heart of current issues and the exchange of data made possible by blockchain technologies have generated a world of "multi-users" that raises the question of the author and the uniqueness of the work. Social and political satires also criticize a totalizing and vertical network, with an addictive and depressive dimension, far from the emancipating utopia of the network at the beginning of the digital era.
