This weekend Varia is hosting two gatherings that are both the start of a series:
Feminist Hack Meetings (on Saturday)
An informal first gathering of a series of research meetings that aim to explore the suggestions, urgencies and potentials of feminist hack & tech initiatives.
Read & Repair feat. The Bootleg Library (on Sunday)
Come and make yourself comfortable, read the books you never find time to read, browse/exchange/acquire parts from our electronics depot or use the quietness of the day to repair things that need fixing.
the #diybookscanner channel on freenode is a ghost town. There is a not a single other person there. Where are they? What happened to them?
Misiunea Spațială Delta, an animated SF Romanian film from 1984, will be screened at BOZAR Brussels on Monday 28th, with soundrack by Rodion G.A. https://europalia.eu/en/events/rodion-g.a.-presents-misiunea-spatiala-delta
celebration time, my book, obnoxious joy
OMG the book is real! Time for a serious post, I guess…
First, some practical info: I'll talk about the book on the 23rd in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week (hopefully with a little surprise). Hope to see you there: https://www.facebook.com/events/481202395943565/?event_time_id=491450554918749
If you live in Rotterdam, you'll soon find the book at Varia and Printroom or you can directly ask me. Otherwise you can get it online here: https://www.onomatopee.net/product/entreprecariat/
I'd like to thank Freek and Josh from Onomatopee, who enthusiastically believed in this project. Geert Lovink and Raffaele Alberto Ventura for enriching the book with their sharp contributions. Federico Antonini and Alessio D'Ellena for the beautiful "managerial pulp" design. Francesco D'Abbraccio and Andrea Facchetti of Krisis, who made this happen in the very first place (l'edizione italiana è ancora disponibile BTW). There are many more people I'm grateful to, check page 6 to find out ;)
Hey! On Monday, I'll be in Coventry with Cristina Garriga. We'll discuss experimental #publishing as part of a free event from the Post-Publishing programme of the Centre for Postdigital Cultures from #Coventry uni.
Come say hi :)
Iggy Pop’s less famous song about his favourite shades is my favourite. https://youtu.be/bqlCmOqsYIE
@entreprecariat the urgency is real.
Open Call for contributions
Eclectic Tech Carnival 2019
8 - 13 October in Athens, Greece
Halt and Catch Fire
/ETC is a gathering of feminists, who critically use/study/share/improve everyday information technologies in the context of the free software and open hardware movements.
We strongly believe that an empowering event is one in which everyone actively contributes to its realization. For this reason, we would love to receive plenty of suggestions for activities, presentations, workshops etcetera.
We invite you, women and FNTI persons (females, non-binaries, trans, intersexuals) to kindly submit your proposal by Monday, 2 September 2019, at whatever time zone is comfortable for you.
Please send an email to this address:
Looking forward to seeing you in Athens!
