12.11. From Commons to NFT, Confernence and Book Lauch (Ljubliana)

This conference brings together artists, hackers and researchers to critically examine the shift in digital culture from open sharing to crypto-based forms of ownership. Is this the ultimate triumph of financialisation, or are there openings for different property regimes and thus new forms of art and culture?

I'm one of the editors of the conference and the book with the same name we will be launching as well.

Where surveillance technologies used to be a specialized part of urban public space mostly aimed at crime prevention and investigation, today surveillance in the form of automated data collection and analysis has become an essential part of contemporary infrastructure — from smart phones to social media, smart home devices, and beyond. Nowadays, surveillance is both hidden and pervasive in its structure and operation. It surrounds us as an “invisible infrastructure” that tracks us and allows our devices to show us content tailored to “our” interests and respond to “our” desires.

But to what extent is mass observation and data access acceptable? Where is the fine line between new technological advances making our life easier—whether it is physical or virtual—and becoming manipulative?

Can You See Me Now? illuminates a variety of artistic and social tactics that address these questions and explore the shift from surveillance as technology to surveillance as infrastructure. The artists focus on making surveillance infrastructures visible by “performing” the technologies in unintentional, experimental ways. Visitors are able to discover new modes of interaction with the technology as well as possibilities to intervene in the systems beyond the aesthetic experience.

Eröffnungsvortrag zur Konferenz "Offen, kollaborativ und digital – wie gemeinsam(e) Ressourcen in der Kultur und Wissenschaft geschaffen werden", der Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU).

Das Digitale als Raum, Kultur als Konvivialität

Oftmals verstehen wir das Digitale als das, was sich am Bildschirm manifestiert, als Bilder, Texte, Videos und Daten angeordnet in Listen, Feeds, oder Hyperlinks, abrufbar in ständig sich wandelnden Konfigurationen.
