Feminist Hack Meetings #2 - Polyphonic Radio Ensemble
Let's create a radiophonic piece together!
Reni Hofmüller (https://renitentia.mur.at/) will introduce us to radio and the idea of catching the waves artistically and technically. We invite you to join a #radio improvisation work, by using and adapting the time- and material structuring method of the #Polyphonic #Ensemble (https://renitentia.mur.at/polyphonic.html).
Laten we samen een radiofonisch stuk maken!
Reni Hofmüller (https://renitentia.mur.at/) neemt ons mee in de wereld van radio en het idee van 'catching the waves': een method om geluidsgolven artistiek en technisch op te vangen. Doe mee aan deze radio-improvisatie aan de
hand van de tijd- en materiaalstructureringsmethode van het Polyphonic Ensemble

If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!
Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.
This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> http://relearn.be/2021/

Fantastic products such as Water 3.0, 'Urban gardening without a garden', 'following people to make cities greener', 'climate friendly advertising' and a strong showing from 5 luxury car brands and much more.
Read & Repair - The Automated Body feat. Katarina Jazbec & MELT
11:00-13:00 CEST (READ, in person)
14:00-16:00 CEST (REPAIR, online)
The text selection and our reading choreography in June was made by artist Katarina Jazbec. This Read session will be overflown with no bullshit tales on living and dying together on damaged earth. How are we to live in the ruins with the dead and the living? Arundhati Roy’s ghost vultures and Anjum, a Muslim Hijra, in her opening chapter of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness and The Camille Stories in the closing chapter of the Staying with the Trouble by Donna J. Haraway, speculative fabulations, will render us capable of response in disturbing times.
The Repair session of this theme is hosted by arts-design researchers MELT. For this repair session we will work with and around the project Rituals against Barriers by MELT which is inspired by the multiple practices of survival in the face of oppression which take the form of ritual practice. Rituals can invite a stepping away from whatever normativities and can allow entry into practices such as: Refusing to ignore a feeling, refusing to not listen to your body because doing so would make apparent the ableism of any space, refusing to speed up even if that is the normalised tempo.

What are the conditions for a computer user to gain agency, defined here as the ability to evade automatisms? What is the user’s horizon of autonomy within a built world made of software programmed by somebody else, when its logic is made inaccessible in the name of convenience? (...)
In the Feminist Hack Meeting #1 @mara introduced us to mailing lists migration with Mailman. The migration of feminist lists hosted by the systerserver project was realised successfully and we went through the 'pain' all together! Here are some photos/screenshots from that day.
Thanks to all the participants who joined!
On Monday, March 8 we stop. Together with Bye Bye Binary, Constant joins the feminist strike to call attention to the difficult conditions under which people* keep things going in the street, at school, at home, on call, in the hospital, on the server, at the distribution center, in the supermarket... We strike in solidarity with all those who cannot stop and with those who are forced to stop. We strike to demand an end to sexist, racist and queerphobic violence — to binary regimes — to income inequality — to feminicide — to the exploitation of migrants — to precarious work.
@manetta and I have been working on a small online module about #bots as digital #infrapunctures for @cc_utrecht, where the latter is a term that draws attention to stress points in infrastructures and stimulates thinking about how to intervene. We welcome feedback and thoughts on it, it is a work that will continue in different ways.
