ABout : CiTiZEN KiNO is a hybrid of film, internet, theater, hacker culture and
public forum. Each program is an interactive and tactical media
performance, a live multi-dimensional cinema with co-curated screenings at
its core. An ongoing series of events based in Berlin used to upgrade
community + collective intelligence.

Our latest episode – C-KiNO #40 : All You Can’t Eat ! – focuses on digital
culture in this extremely precarious and dubious era of predatory
corporate capitalism + technotopian extremism. We’ll examine the
technological landscapes which are rapidly shaping civilizations with so
many undemocratic agendas, questionable ‘progress’ and disturbing trends.
We’ll be reflecting on the situations now often described as the
post-Snowden internet, or as the XLt terms a “cybernetic regime”. We assess
the dangers and discuss possible new routes to maneuver and intervene in
this information-flooded, over-networked and now fully militarized social
sphere.

With a variety of current research from the likes of Astra Taylor, Evgeny
Morozov, and excerpts from an illuminating public domain documentary
called Eyewar from Root and Thorn. We also include insights from
Berlin-based projects like Chaos Communications Congress ( Europe’s oldest
and largest hacker convergence) , Tactical Tech Collective ( a public
advocacy and watchdog group similar to The Electronic Frontier Foundation
in California ), the art group Telekommunisten ( coders and cultural
tinkerers now working with Thoughtworks ) and festivals like Transmediale,
Re:publica and events put on by Berliner Gazette. Plus we always features
a wide variety of unusual audio-visual specimens, which will be used to
experiment with you – the media-users.

About XLterrestrials: We are an expandable+collaborative arts and praxis group currently based in the last remaining tunnels of Btropolis, where the tectonic plates of east meets west meets the planetary whole ! We are stocking up on brainfood items, counter-cultural maps, re-embodied detournement and freshly-picked perspectives to prepare the next autonomous zones where a diversity of subcultures can survive. We are fully unlicensed psychomedia analysts and interventioneers since 2133.

* AND, a little face[FED]book Guerrilla Marketing experiment *

If YOU participate in the ‘lovely’ FEDBOOK ( low-life spam guerrilla marketeers extraordinaire, selling your data to innumerable 3rd parties ),  you can TAG YOURSELF in the IMAGE above and/or just help to share the INVITE, for these VEry RAre CiTiZEN KiNO SF Bay appearances. Hmm, btw, how many people can one tag in an artvist/meme image ?

We’re catching up on promoting these shows, after having to spend the last week dealing w/ the XLterrestrials site being hacked ( by spammers most likely, or other malacious entities, supposedly via China + Romania. Btw we DO have a sweet spot for Romanian hackers especially, except when we’re the targets ).

So any help spreading the word would be most appreciated ( and rewarded. just let us know at one of the shows. we’ve got some culty Btropolis goods for YOU! ).
