Center for Artistic Activism - making political art work // #hacktivism

Center for Artistic Activism - making political art work // #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

There is an art to every practice, activism included. It’s what distinguishes the innovative from the routine, the elegant from the mundane. One thing that can help the “art of activism” is applying an artistic aesthetic tactically, strategically, and organizationally.  Throughout history, the most effective political actors have married the arts with campaigns for social change.  While Martin Luther King Jr is now largely remembered for his example of moral courage, social movement historian Doug McAdam’s estimation of King’s “genius for strategic dramaturgy,” likely better explains the success of his campaigns. From Jesus’ parables to the Tea Party’s protests, working artfully makes activism effective. ...

Firebrand Waves of Digital #Activism 1994-2014 | Athina Karatzogianni | #hacktivism

Firebrand Waves of Digital #Activism 1994-2014 | Athina Karatzogianni | #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

This book introduces four waves of upsurge in digital activism and cyberconflict. The rise of digital activism started in 1994, was transformed by the events of 9/11, culminated in 2011 with the Arab Spring uprisings, and entered a transformative phase of control and mainstreaming since 2013 with the Snowden affair.

 

'The book presents a high quality and original contribution to the field. The main argument of the book is unique, and synthesizes literature across a number of disciplines innovatively. We have seen several studies or individual articles that examine instances, or shorter trajectories of digital activism. This volume is unique in that it provides a thorough historical overview of digital activism and connects this historical overview to theoretical terms, perspectives and development.' Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA

#Hacktivism: A threat to 2016 polls? (part 1,2,3) by Mia Rosienna Mallari

Lanky and standing at 5″3′, he passes off as a regular among thousands of college students in the country’s largest engineering educational institution. He slacks, procrastinates and crams for his academics. Kyuubei, his preferred alias, admittedly never topped the class: His real talents lie somewhere he deems more practical and useful outside the four corners of a classroom.

He started young. In fifth grade, autorun viruses that were captured in storage devices were spreading like wildfire. Kyuubei decided to venture out and look deep into the Internet for communities centered on hacking and specialized in dealing with malicious software (malware).

 

There, he stumbled upon a fellow enthusiast “Tear[A]Door” whom Kyuubei credits to having spawned the vbscript-worm generator that allows users of the program to construct viruses of their own. He also met “alcopaul,” who has mastered and is one of the creators of the Joint Photographic Experts Group infector malware. Their conversations became regular correspondences. Kyuubei was hooked. ...

Hacktivism and Cyberwars: Rebels with a cause? by Tim Jordan & Paul A. Taylor (2004)

Hacktivism and Cyberwars: Rebels with a cause? by Tim Jordan &  Paul A. Taylor (2004) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

As global society becomes more and more dependent, politically and economically, on the flow of information, the power of those who can disrupt  and  manipulate  that  flow  also  increases.  In  Hacktivism and Cyberwars: Rebels with a cause? Tim Jordan and Paul A. Taylor provide a detailed history of hacktivism’s evolution from early hacking culture to its present-day status as the radical face of online politics. They describe the ways in which hacktivism has re-appropriated hacking techniques to create an innovative new form of political protest.

 

A full explanation is given of the different strands of hacktivism and the ‘cyberwars’ it  has created, ranging from such avant-garde groups as the Electronic Disturbance Theatre to more virtually focused groups labelled ‘the digitally correct’. The full social and historical context of hacktivism is portrayed  to  take  into  account  its  position  in  terms  of  new  social movements,  direct  action  and  its  contribution  to  the  globalisation debate.  This  book  provides  an  important  corrective  flipside  to mainstream accounts of e-commerce and broadens the conceptualisation of the Internet to take into full account the other side of the digital divide.

 

Tim Jordan is a Lecturer in Sociology at the Open University and  Paul A. Taylor is  a  Senior  Lecturer  in  the  Institute  for  Communication Studies at the University of Leeds.

Waste(d)! #festival | Art Meets Radical Openness - 25.05-28.05.2016 // #hacktivism #openculture #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The event is rooted in the successful Free Software movement of the early 2000s. In conjunction with the Austrian-wide initiative Linux Weeks, servus.at was a co-organizer from the beginning with an event in Linz (LiWoLi – “Linux Weeks Linz”)

The cultural, artistic and socio-political focus of the association, which is still marked by the spirit of the Free Software movement, has been systematically expanded with a new cooperation with the Institute for Time-Based Media (Art University Linz) beginning in 2008. Social, societal and political aspects arising from the pervasion of technology in everyday life are shifted into the foreground.

 

Consequent to a local development, the term “freedom” has been transferred in this context to culture and art, thus engendering a new title: Art Meets Radical Openness.

Art Meets Radical Openness


Festival dedicated to Art, Hacktivism and Open Culture

“Art Meets Radical Openness” is a community festival, an open lab, and a meeting point for artists, developers, hactivists, and idealists involved with the culture of sharing and communal production. They are catalysts that spark new discourses and open up new directions of thinking. Free Open Source Software, open tools in general and the use of free licenses are the precondition and basis for the digital practice of a community like this, which impels social transformation. This tangible transformation goes beyond a digital practice and also changes our real life.

Interviews with Natalie Bookchin & Brendan Jackson (2001) - New media, community art, #netart #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Natalie Bookchin is active in net.art and activism, and is based at CalArts, California. She is currently participating in a residency at MECAD, Barcelona. She was interviewed by email, by Beryl Graham, January 2001.


Beryl Graham: You've had experience of "hacktivism', and net.art. Would you differentiate them, and if so, how?

Natalie Bookchin: … at times the two practices overlap, but other times they don't. Early net art tended to have an activist bent to it, in part because it emerged in the context of an on-line scene active in the free distribution of information, software and ideas in the face of the imminent commercializing and 'malling' of the net … On the other hand there are hacktivists and net activists who do not see themselves as artists per se, but I would argue that their practices can often be seen as a form of art, in their creative and subversive uses of form and content, and their symbolic, representational and practical work which rubs itself against the commercial and corporate grain....

#Hacktivism: the Art of Practicing Life and Computer Hacking for #Feminist #Activism | By Christina Haralanova

#Hacktivism: the Art of Practicing Life and Computer Hacking for #Feminist #Activism | By Christina Haralanova | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Life is hacking. And hacking is the art of constantly learning about the artifacts that surround us throughout our lives. For instance, a child practices hacking all day long by touching, exploring, tasting, smelling, breaking things. A child approaches every leaf, piece of wood or spinning-top with a sense of curiosity and concentration. This is the art of practicing Life through hacking as a value and a principle of learning and doing.

Pourquoi prendre pour cible les paradis fiscaux ?

Comme la plupart des activistes, j’ai toujours trouvé très contradictoire que des gens puissants échappent aux impôts dans des pays comme la Suisse. Avec la crise financière et le mouvement Occupy, les mécanismes des centres offshore ont commencé à émerger, et l’on a vu combien l’activité offshore s’était banalisée pour les multinationales comme pour les banques.

Hackistan experimenting > new models > smart & impactful solutions for the future we want - #hacktivism | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The aim of Hackistan (http://Hackistan.be) is to gather people who want to save the world, and let them collaborate efficiently towards emancipation around projects with societal and environmental impact.

 

In a trust-based framework, our goal is offer individuals and projects the best human, digital, financial and infrastructure existing resources - which are btw often underused-, within what we call a vertuous environment (mutualistic, redistributive).

 

This framework should allow these people and projects to connect more efficiently with resourceful partners (public/private actors, impact investors, Foundations, infrastructure managers).

Technically, we bootstrap this in Brussels by offering a working space, organizing open topic-wise events and private retreats for the collective members, as well as listening as much to the needs/obstacles/fears/ambitions from the people in the existing ecosystem. We aim at lifting up all fictive barriers (linguistic, disciplinary, scientific, industrial, individual) that brakes down the emergence pace of useful solutions.

 

Enspiral, Sensorica and many other initiatives are highly inspiring to us, we try to build something which relates directly to the specificities of the Belgian environment (a nd local opportunities aswell).

Cyberconflict & #Hacktivism in a Contemporary Context - by Athina Karatzogianni

Cyberconflict & #Hacktivism in a Contemporary Context - by Athina Karatzogianni | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Currently the terms 'hacktivism', 'digital activism' and 'cyber activism' are frequently used by the various global media outlets, especially in connection with the social media-enabled protests taking place in the Middle East, Europe and elsewhere around the world. Understanding the nuances of these terms, their relationship to cyberconflict, and the difficulties for governments and the international community in responding to any type of cyberconflict incident are well worth exploring at this point in time.

 

Hacktivism is a term that combines the words hacker and activism. It refers to the art of manipulating code and using computers for political purposes. These include mobilizing supporters, creating software that helps bypass censorship or bridge digital inequality, and supporting specific campaigns, organizations, and protests around the world using electronic disobedience or social mobilization. Hacktivism in its purest form is an information-age ideology which, depending on the political spectrum, can support: peer production as an alternative mode to capitalism, copyleft or open source software, direct or participatory democracy, and transparent government...

Hackers éthiques, Civic Tech, hackers recrutés pour la cybersécurité : la figure du pirate numérique a fait place à celle des hérauts de la contestation, de la justice, de l’information libre, de la sécurité… Les hackers participent désormais à rendre le monde plus transparent, plus libre, plus engagé : certains livrent même les outils en open source pour que chacun puisse agir. Quel est le rôle de ces figures aujourd’hui ? Y a-t-il des différences entre les hackeurs ?  Comment fait-on cohabiter un monde de règles, de pare-feu et de lois, et ceux qui les contournent ? Peut-on désormais faire profession de hacker?

Furtherfield and Contemporary Art Culture – Where We Are Now by Marc Garrett (2013) // #mediaart

Furtherfield and Contemporary Art Culture – Where We Are Now by Marc Garrett (2013) // #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

For over 17 years Furtherfield has been working in practices that bridge arts, technology, and social change. Over these years we have been involved in many great projects, and have collaborated with and supported a variety of talented people. Our artistic endeavors include net art, media art, hacking, art activism, hacktivism and co-curating. We have always believed it is essential that the individuals at the heart of Furtherfield practice in arts and technology and are engaged in critical enquiry. For us art is not just about running a gallery or critiquing art for art’s sake. The meaning of the art is in perpetual flux, and we examine its changing relationship with the human condition. Furtherfield’s role and direction as an arts collective is shaped by the affinities we identify among diverse independent thinkers, individuals and groups who have questions to ask in their work about the culture.

 

Here I present a selection of Furtherfield projects and exhibitions featured in the public gallery space, we have ran in Finsbury Park in North London for the last two years. I set out some landmarks on the journey we have experienced with others, and end my presentation with news of another space we have recently opened (also in the park) called the Furtherfield Commons. ...

#Book - Networked Disruption -
Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism & Business of Social Networking By Tatiana Bazzichelli

#Book - Networked Disruption -<br/>Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism & Business of Social Networking By Tatiana Bazzichelli | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The current techno-economic paradigm of Web 2.0 has challenged notions of art and hacktivism within digital culture. The book “Networked Disruption” takes up this challenge and discusses a new perspective on political and social criticism. It simultaneously asks what are the conditions for hacker and artistic practices under Web 2.0 and how can social networking be seen to build on and incorporate artistic practices from the earlier decades of digital and network culture.

Through its theoretical discussion of contemporary art and hacktivism, the book maps out a new contradictory space for art and criticism: Networked disruption.

What is the book about?

After the emergence of Web 2.0, the critical framework of art and hacktivism has shifted from developing strategies of opposition to embarking on the art of disruption. By identifying the emerging contradictions within the current economical and political framework of Web 2.0, the aim is to reflect on the status of activist and hacker practices as well as those of artists in the new generation of social media (or so called Web 2.0 technologies), analysing the interferences between networking participation and disruptive business innovation...

Paul Duan. Comment 10 personnes peuvent sauver la vie de 10 millions #hacktivism

Généralement, quand on pense au big data et au traitement des données informatiques, on pense illico aux stratégies commerciales agressives et à la surveillance généralisée des citoyens. Mais Paul Duan lui, y voit surtout la possibilité d’un monde meilleur. A 22 ans, ce génie revient des Etats-Unis avec la ferme intention de diminuer le chômage… rien qu’avec des algorithmes ! Explications.

Paul Duan est né à Trappes de migrants chinois qui ont fui la répression communiste. Excellent élève, il a eu un parcours exemplaire : le lycée de Buc dans les Yvelines, Sciences Po puis Berkeley, dans la Silicon Valley.

 

Là-bas, il crée en 2014 une ONG baptisée Bayes Impact. Son but ? « Faire de la Terre un endroit meilleur » grâce à une saine utilisation des données.

Ça peut sembler ambitieux mais, malgré son jeune âge, Paul Duan a déjà quelques succès à son actif : l’optimisation du trajet des ambulances de San Francisco et la prévention des risques dans les hôpitaux. Deux exemples qui sauvent des vies tous les jours rien qu’avec l’utilisation de données statistiques et informatiques !

In 2013 MUTEK Montréal launched MUTEK_IMG, a spin-off festival to augment its focus on electronic music by developing a platform that would serve as a dedicated “forum on currrent practiecs in digital creation.” Back with a second edition focused on virtual reality and immersive media, MUTEK_IMG 2015 will consider VR’s possible role as “the next platform in experiential technology” and bring together researchers, technologists, media artists, and related production and distribution companies for a critical consideration of the emerging medium. With a number of VR headsets already available and the long-awaited release of the Oculus Rift due in early 2016, it is an ideal moment to survey the immersive media landscape and consider opportunities for both creation and commercialization.


Taking place on October 1st–3rd at Montréal’s PHI Centre, MUTEK_IMG’s program is broken into three major components: a daylong VR Salon, a VR exhibition, and a symposium foregrounding current topics in projection mapping, hacking, and interactive art in urban space.

Revisiting the Curious World of Art & #Hacktivism (2012) - by  Marc Garrett on furtherfield.org | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

"It is not accidental that at a point in history when hierarchical power and manipulation have reached their most threatening proportions, the very concepts of hierarchy, power and manipulation come into question. The challenge to these concepts comes from a redsicovery of the importance of spontaneity - a rediscovery nourished by ecology, by a heightened conception of self-development, and by a new understanding of the revolutionary process in society.” Murray Bookchin. Post-scarcity and Anarchism (1968).


The rise of neo-liberalism as a hegemonic mode of discourse, infiltrates every aspect of our social lives. Its exponential growth has been helped by gate-keepers of top-down orientated alliances; holding key positions of power and considerable wealth and influence. Educational, collective and social institutions have been dismantled, especially community groups and organisations sharing values associated with social needs in the public realm. ...

Of all my Anonymous subjects, I was closest to the defiant Sabu. Turns out he was closer with the FBI.


For six years I have been studying the protest ensemble Anonymous. Some challenges come with the job. By definition, Anonymous is a faceless collective. As many participants in this milieu conceal their identities carefully, it was impossible to tell who lay behind the mask.


Nevertheless, since most Anons engaged with each other using pseudonymous nicknames, I interacted with a stable cast of characters on the chat channels where I did the great bulk of my ethnographic research on Anonymous. People developed reputations, and their personalities and linguistic idiosyncrasies shone through their text-based conversations.
