IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S US - text adventure meets radio drama / 7-12. December
IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S US is a postsynchronous* collective text to speech adventure, embodying everyday contractual codification such as Terms of Service, Codes of Conduct and Patents.

It's still possible to join until tomorrow 4pm CET!

It was constructed between an archipelago of friends such as but not limited to Angeliki, Clara, Chung, and Reinaart.
This radio broadcast departs from conversations about the essay Sketches of Archipelagic Poetics of Postcolonial Belonging by maryamdeluz and Marco Cuevas-Hewitt. The essay is an island of a mutual aid anarchozine package compiled by EtnikoBandido. (...)
That is quite an historic moment.

How a Google Spreadsheet Broke the Art World’s Culture of Silence

What we called ‘an elephant in the room’ only a few months ago, has finally trampled all residual ‘room’ in education. It might feel like the change is sudden, but it has been long in the making..."
Today and tomorrow, some freshly graduated #XPUB students will present at the wild state in #Linz as part of an #arselectronica programme created and hosted by the Universität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung.
The presentations are streamed online:
@pedrosaclout Tactical #Watermarks is an online republishing platform that exists in both the clear and dark web, exploring topics such as anonymity, paywalls, archives and provenance through digital watermarks.
@estragon Syster Papyri Magicae is a web-based project that unfolds the phenomenon of #gender exclusions in male-dominated tech environments, aiming to discuss and activate feminist practices that respond to this issue.
@r1ta Networks of Care offers a collection of user guidelines for you to browse, dissect and analyse. Delve into the conversations with different #community members and find useful templates, resources, and experiments. Let’s explore the networks of care generated together.
Full scheduled at https://ausstellungen.ufg.at/wildstate

"In the 1990s, twenty minutes was all it took for local authorities in the Austrian city of Graz to detect and neutralise any illegal radio transmitter. Back then, Reni Hofmüller was part of a group of activists who took over the airwaves with pirate broadcasts every Sunday from the mountains surrounding the city. After short 18-minute sessions, the Radio Dauerwelle team would pack up its equipment and clear out, moments before the authorities arrived. It was a way of bringing new sounds to listeners while at the same time reclaiming the radio waves trapped in a state monopoly.(...)"
