In 2011, photographer Tanja Hollander began traveling the world to photograph her 626 Facebook friends. While crossing the globe, Hollander discovered the ways in which contemporary friendship and community are defined, and how permission is granted in one’s private—yet also very public—online life. Are you really my friend? is shown in its entirety for the first time at MASS MoCA, with an installation combining photographs, video, data visualization, a travelogue, and an interactive component that asks viewers to define what a real friend means to them.
