Annalee Newitz and Charlie Jane Anders talk about 'The Myth of Rugged '

I find very interesting the part towards the end about individual/collective . It makes me develop imaginaries about collective technology or think about collective/shared (my mind goes to examples like , , etc).

Amazing series focusing on science fiction and real-life science and society!

In less than a week  will take place in Japan. I also contributed to the event with the work "Let's Amplify Unspeakable Things". It was exciting to prepare a video paper for it, using the tools I made/used for the actual project (-line , , , -tags, -audio ). The paper is performed as a one-shot recording.

"SOUND::GENDER::FEMINISM::ACTIVISM (SGFATokyo) will investigate the relationships between sound in all its various creative and theoretical forms, gender and activism. This fourth instalment will take place at Tokyo University of the Arts, Japan.

SGFA was originally initiated in 2012 by researchers and artists based at the Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP). The events form part of ongoing collaborative research into historic and contemporary feminist discourses in sound and experimental music. This research aims to expand and to question the place and performance of activism within the discourses and practices of sound arts, sound-based arts and experimental musics that are engaged with gender, feminist and queer politics and to contribute to a growing network of researchers and practitioners working in these areas."

Halt and Catch Fire

Ανοιχτό Κάλεσμα

Το /ETC είναι ένα φεμινιστικό φεστιβάλ, στο οποίο καθημερινές τεχνολογίες πληροφορικής μελετούνται, διαμοιράζονται και αναπτύσσονται κριτικά στο πλαίσιο των κινημάτων του ελεύθερου λογισμικού και του ανοιχτού υλισμικού. Το φεστιβάλ εμπλουτίζει τον πολιτικό προβληματισμό των χάκινγκ συναντήσεων με τη φεμινιστική διαθεματικότητα.

Σας προσκαλούμε να πειραματιστείτε ελεύθερα με το πώς να μεταφέρετε τις ικανότητες και τις γνώσεις σας δημιουργικά. Περιμένουμε να διαβάσουμε τις ιδέες σας! Το φεστιβάλ βασίζεται σε ισότιμες (peer-to-peer) πρακτικές εκμάθησης και ανταλλαγής γνώσεων. Παρουσιάσεις όπως π.χ. επιχειρηματικές ιδέες για γυναίκες δεν μας αφορούν.

Σας προσκαλούμε, γυναίκες, θηλυκά, τρανς, ίντερσεξ άτομα, να υποβάλλετε την πρότασή σας μέχρι τη Δευτέρα 2 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019, οποιαδήποτε ώρα της ημέρας. Στείλτε μήνυμα στην ηλεκτρονική διεύθυνση:
