Of all the greyzones of our readwrite worldings, bibliographic self-defence constitutes a specially powerful one. Self-defence, resistance, counter-weighting and mutual support operations of immense technopolitical value keep taking place at what can be termed "peripheral literature areas" such as bibliographies, footnotes, indexes, acknowledgement pages, colophons, library metadata and side annotations, where trans*feminist, anticolonial, antiracist, queer, crip, antispeciest, antifa and atiageist solidarities take very tangible and specific forms.
The devices we surround ourselves with are an increasingly complex and extremely heterogeneous matter. In a short workshop we will investigate the materiality and inevitable politics of electronic components. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to dissect specific objects in terms of their material, socio-cultural and ecological dimension.
In this process we will dismantle and dissect components to their very building blocks, investigating components from the Electronica Depot.

We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
