#cccamp2015

We must admit the first time we ever went to Chaos Communications Congress, we had images of a convergence / encounter with a very different species… But we also had a very friendly introduction through a comrade who we’ll just leave anonymous, but thx! … it was a very warm welcome ! And it was impossible – for us as dedicated media activists – not to be inspired by and pulled along into the “new” exciting front of cultural resistance.

But over the years, the degrees to which our opinions have changed about digital culture and the tech community(-ies) and their various versions of social upgrades remains a very long story. And one which is very hard to tell. Perhaps this year’s summer camp ( only once every four years in Germany) will help us – again -to illuminate the complexities, and the often diverging paths we take.

If we had to capture in one image … that 1st one above, is to make you laugh, but this one below may come close …

But such complexity cannot be reduced to a single image… nor images… nor comics. And the perspectives continue to evolve … and the strange alliances continue to grow. And a serious dependency on our communication channels ( and the necessities of defending them ) are increasingly critical to advancing (m)any of our social causes !

Speaking as XLterrestrials, we can clearly say, happiness has hardly been an outcome of our diving so deep into the machines … And the webby world of the high-wired and overly-occular Anthropocentric Intelligence Agency is beyond problematic !

The A.I.A ?! … WHat ?! …

More on that coming soon… And please note:

In the meantime, other events we wish to alert you to…

< 08-09.08 > A Game Of You, Into The Social Media Vortex , a Disruption Lab Event with Gabriel Moses, Oliver Lerone Schultz and more. at Kunstquartier Bethanien, Studio 1, Mariannenplatz 2, Berlin || Performance & Screening: Spektrum, Bürknerstraße 12, Berlin

Yesterday’s program provided alot of provocative issues to analyze… and we are workin on an article. In the meantime…

XLt recommends: 2nite The Disruption Lab program continues with what we thought was a seemingly kitschy trivial meme for techno fans and cultural + digital silliness, but actually the doc being screened opens up a very interesting topic of individual rights vs. artists’ freedom of expression…. A true can of worms in the predatory digital era with no clear path ahead. We spoke with Matthias Fritsch last night and it was a fascinating chat… but given the context of the situations we face, Xterrestrials are far more disturbed by the net’s ability to play us all for social guinea pigs in a dubious krapitalist-entangled + mob mentality environments…

Go PUSH buttons on the discourse and the resistance, or this might remain just More cultural circus and technotopian sideshow fodder…
