Subject: [Squatconf] [squatconf] Dark Technology Dark Web exhibition at Spektrum Berlin - input welcome
html,body{background-color:#fff;color:#333;line-height:1.4;font-family:sans-serif,Arial,Verdana,Trebuchet MS;}Dear all,

Last year Squatconf took place at Spektrum, Berlin, an art space focused on art / science / community. We currently have an open call welcoming inputs to our next exhibition & conference Dark Technology Dark Web (21-23 April 2017): I hope it would be interesting for some of you to contribute, either to the program itself, or to the closing conference on Sunday, which will be moderated by Tatiana Bazzichelli of Disruption Network Lab. I copy our Open Call text below: also feel free to spread it to people that you think may be interested:

"While smart is the keyword of the omni-connection through the internet of things and social media, dark is the state of our relation with the user-oriented technology that operates the data collection of our online choices and issues our privacy and self determination in the web.

Like never before, we are spectators of an effort of sense-making within the massive amount of data available, which is in urgent need of being interpreted by controversial intelligent machines, such as hackers do when they call them systems of surveillance. In this digital space, the Dark Web extends into grey-zone territory: banned by society as a container of illegal activities while serving as a genesis of new subcultures.

The open call for this section of Dark Society aims to gather works that unveil these technological dimensions while questioning the ability and necessity for users to stay anonymous, hide their tracks or obfuscate their surrounding systems of surveillance.

Proposals: alfredo@??? (deadline 1 April 2017) - more information: http://spektrumberlin.de/open-calls/detail/open-call-dark-society.html"

Many thanks for considering to contribute, and of course you're also welcome to join the event itself!

Best, Lieke.
