Facebook has over 2.2 billion users and just over 30 million are dead. By 2065, dead users will outnumber the living, rendering the site a digital graveyard. This performance lecture explores our online afterlives, their value to those left behind, and how they can be co-opted for political and economic purposes.

Chris Dupuis is a writer, curator, and performance maker originally from Toronto. His interdisciplinary works have appeared in galleries, closets, hotel rooms, shipping containers, toilets, and occasionally on stage. His first book Winter Kept Us Warm will be published by McGill-Queen’s University Press in 2024.
