Disruption is networked. Enjoy it before In the business world, disruption means to it is spoiled. introduce into the market an innovation that the market does not expect. This innovation comes —— Tatiana Bazzichelli from within the market itself. Transferred into the field of art and activism, disruption means to generate practices and interventions that are unexpected, and play within the systems under scrutiny. Art, hacktivism and business are often intertwined, generating a feedback loop of revolutions and co-optations that is functional to the development of capitalism. Capitalism needs our revolutions because they generate new lifestyles, products and practices that create new markets and consumer desires. Similarly, systems of power need our resistance and opposition because they serve to increase security and forms of control. We need to find new strategies that go beyond the mere act of opposition and that are harder to appropriate. In this exhibition we adopt the concept of disruption from business and we propose works that emerge from within political, economical, technological and art systems. They play with their power logic generating virality, anonymity, semantic confusion, multiple truths, and disruption. Diverse points of view are combined, among the groups and within the groups themselves. By keeping such connections open without

O

n the occasion of Networked Disruption, Telekommunisten will present to potential investors and partners a brand new product of OCTO, the leader in pneumatic physical packet communication systems. What OCTO is developing for global users is now available for your company or institution. OCTO's new Enterprise Security ( ES ) System is the most effective way to maintain security and efficiency in your company's physical Intranet. The OCTO P7C-ES features revolutionary CAPS-LOCK® technology, a fully-integrated system which allows complete tracking and capsule contents control ( 3CT ) for every transmission, and ensures that only authorized users are able to use your OCTO P7C-ES. CAPS-LOCK® also provides unprecedented insights into and control over the behaviour of your employees, allowing you to manage workloads and task assignment better than ever before. With CAPS-LOCK®, OCTO P7C-ES is the comprehensive enterprise solution for physical packet security and reliability.

Telekommunisten is a Berlin-based collective whose work investigates the political economy of communications technology. Core themes include the incompatibility of capitalism with free networks and free culture, and the increasing centralisation and enclosure that results, as well as the potential for distributed producers employing a collective stock of productive assets to provide an alternative economic basis for a free society.

ccording to Monty Cantsin, Neoism is a name invented by Monty Cantsin to refer to an international movement of multiple origins. The name is fixed; the use isn't. The purpose of many different uses of the same name is to experiment with a situation for which no one in particular is responsible. Neoism started as an idea without a clear definition, an empty concept to be appropriated: In the course of the 1980s, it developed into an international subcultural network of people who collectively used the Monty Cantsin identity. This network spread from North America to Europe ( among others, the UK, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Yugoslavia, and Hungary ), and later to Australia and Asian countries. The first public manifestations of Neoism were a number of apartment festivals, disruptive interventions in art spaces and other open situations, organized at that time by a young crowd of experimenters and subcultural activists. Activities included setting steam irons on fire, wearing dead fish as hats,

nonymous is constantly changing and in motion. Information about Anonymous is contradictory, not only because these activists are adept at generating pranks, jokes and even deceit, but also because each member can act independently. Moreover, Anonymous has no shared universal political mandate or ideology, aside from a loose commitment to the ideal of concealment captured in its namesake. Given these dynamics of opacity, deceit, and play, sociological questions about its members are less interesting than questions of fantasy and the range of disparate tactics they deploy. Indeed, Anonymous' double-sided approach of spreading pranks for the lulz ( a derivation of lol – laugh out loud ), beyond moral conformism and political correctness, as well as fighting for freedom and social rights, facing corporations, oppression and corruption, is at the core of the project. The fun of trolling and political activism is bound together. Here are videos and pictures from the early trolling experiences in 2007–2008, to the

T

hese works bring together into an interlinked space the activities of The San Francisco Suicide Club, The Cacophony Society, the early Burning Man Festival, and the Billboard Liberation Front. Linked to the idea of living everyday life as an art form, these groups have deep roots in experimental art practices, promoting and organizing collective pranks, interventions, games and group performances. The well-known Burning Man Festival, the open-air festival held every year since 1990 in the Black Rock Desert ( Northern Nevada, California ), began as a Cacophony Society “event” and would never have been possible without the previous existence of The San Francisco Suicide Club. The San Francisco Suicide Club ( 1977– 1983 ) was a secret society, which originated as an outgrowth of The San Francisco State Communiversity ( 1969 ), a student group within the Free University Movement of the late 1960s-1970s. The Suicide Club motto was to live each day as though it was your last and its aim was to create

Emerging from the ashes of the Suicide Club, The Cacophony Society ( founded in 1986 by ex-Suicide Club members ) was an informal, unclassifiable group of pseudonymous people who spent their time exploring the boundaries of a conformist society, and occasionally crashing them, by disrupting propaganda, mocking respected symbols ( like in their infamous Santarchy, an invasion of rebellious Santas ), exploring forbidden urban space ( from sewers to bridges ), rebuilding freedom through mayhem, confusion, dangerous operations and sometimes just outright madness. The Billboard Liberation Front started in San Francisco in 1977. The BLF practiced culture jamming by altering and improving billboards, parodying corporate messages and mocking consumer society. A direct influence on Shepard Fairey and Ron English, The BLF was operational for 33 years.

Mixed-media materials ( posters, photos, prints, stamps, stickers, flyers, sound tracks, publications ) from the Luther Blissett Project's archive assembled in cooperation with Luther Blissett.

T

he Luther Blissett Project was the applied myth of a common cause. With the aim of disrupting the cultural industry, Luther Blissett was able to create a common phantasmagoria and a shared philosophy throughout the 1990s. It was a “folk hero”, an open identity that could be adapted to anyone, or at least, to all those wanting to subvert the everyday life in the urban space, and the hierarchical mechanisms of power. Luther Blissett also implied a deep criticism of the very concept of politics, questioning authority, leadership, and the mechanism of political representation. Even if many Luthers worked to disrupt capitalism, they also tried to appropriate pop culture for their own ironic purposes, turning their actions into long-lasting collective performances. Between 1994 and 1999 – the year of Blissett's Seppuku, a symbolic suicide orchestrated by some of the early conspirators involved in the LBP – Luther Blissett became an icon for many people involved in the international underground scene. This installation contains

Luther Blissett is a multi-use name, a collective alias, a shared identity adopted by hundreds of artists and activists from the summer of 1994, spreading from Italy to the rest of Europe, to the United States and South America. For reasons that remain unknown, the name, which was borrowed from a 1980s British soccer player of Afro-Caribbean origins, became an extremely popular phenomenon and managed to create the reputation of a folk hero.

Anna Adamolo managed to become a self-representing Italian Minister of Education, University, and Research in the context of the students' and teachers' struggles operated by the “Onda Anomala” ( Anomalous Wave ) national movement in 2008 and 2009. The Anomalous Wave included many individuals and groups who refused to be described as one movement following the same flag, but whose common objective was to contest and abolish the “Gelmini Education Reform Bill”, bearing the name of the Italian Minister of Education, University and Research, Mariastella Gelmini. From the end of 2008, Anna Adamolo served this unrepresentable movement as a collective name that could be adopted in the squares and in the streets by anyone who chose to do so.

dapting the idea of Seppuku, the Japanese ritual suicide of “stomach-cutting” to the context of Facebook, Les Liens Invisibles invited users to deactivate their Facebook accounts. Taking inspiration from the Seppuku as performed by Luther Blissett in 1999, the Seppukoo virtual suicide symbolised the collective detachment from a mechanism designed to make profit by connecting people. Users were invited to instigate a viral suicide process so as to increase their score in the Seppukoo ranking system, by inducing their friends to commit virtual suicide as well. The virtual suicide service functioned through a specific script, which derived from the disruption of Facebook's “Deactivate” system. In 2009, it was not possible for users to voluntarily erase their profiles, and the company kept all data. The process of virtual suicide started when a user logged in to the Seppukoo service, the same usually used to log in to Facebook. Through an open source software ( Open Inviter ) and a PHP library, Seppukoo built a sim-

Networked Disruption: Rethinking Opposition in Art, Hacktivism and Business

Introducing the exhibition at MMSU. Presentation by Tatiana Bazzichelli 23 April, 18 h @ Filodrammatica

T

he departure point of this presentation is the assumption that, on the one hand, networking grassroots communities of hackers and artists have served to accelerate capitalism since the emergence of digital culture and cyber-utopias; on the other hand, they have also served to strengthen antagonism against it, by generating critical artistic practices and hacktivist interventions based on technologies and methodologies of sharing and networking. Such mutual disruption and coexisting oppositions between art, business and networking shows how hackers and artists have been both active agents of business innovation as well as those undermining it. In this presentation, the analysis of disruption as a critical framework, and disruptive business as an artistic strategy, become a means for introducing immanent practices of hackers, artists, networkers and entrepreneurs. The concept of business is questioned by its etymology, and from an ethical point of view. The aim is not to create a historical or philosophical analysis of social and artistic practices, but to reflect on different modalities of generating criticism, shedding light on con-

tradictions and ambiguities both in capitalistic logic and in art and hacktivist strategies, while rethinking oppositional practices in the context of network culture. Tatiana Bazzichelli is a curator and researcher, author of the books Networked Disruption ( 2013 ), Networking ( 2008 ), and co-editor of the book Disrupting Business ( 2013 ). She is director of the Disruption Network Lab, an experimental curatorial project on art, hacktivism, and disruption, based in Berlin. She was programme curator at the transmediale festival from 2011 to 2014, initiating the year-round reSource transmedial culture project, and was a Post-Doctoral researcher at the Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana University of Lüneburg. http: // www.networkingart.eu http: // www.disruptionlab.org

Richard Barbrook is currently an academic in the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Languages at the University of Westminster. In the early 1980s, he was involved with pirate radio broadcasting and published extensively on radio issues. Much of his material on media regulation was published in his 1995 book “Media Freedom”. Together with Andy Cameron in the same year he wrote “The Californian Ideology”, a pioneering critique of the neo-liberal politics of Wired magazine, which reports on how emerging technologies affect culture, the economy

Interruptive Usership

— Stephen Wright 24 April, 20 h @ Filodrammatica

O

ver the past ten or fifteen years, the category of usership has come to the fore in contemporary society, most signally perhaps in the realm of online 2.0 culture, but also due to the challenge to assumptions of expert culture raised by disability studies, and to some extent by the increasing prevalence of immersive art practices eschewing spectatorship in favour of more robust modes of engagement and relationality. But what are the politics of usership? What are the pitfalls, and potentials, of this ancient yet recently repurposed form of practical subjectivity? To start with, usership is both non revolutionary ( inherently non messianic, it has no time to lose ) and structurally irreverent; its profane politics are akin to a sort of radical pragmatism, for while usership is invariably disruptive, it never seeks rupture per se, but rather interruption. As users – we, the users of words, tools, drugs,

Stephen Wright is a Paris-based art writer and teaches the practice of theory at the European School of Visual Arts ( eesi.eu ). His writing has focused primarily on the politics of usership, particularly in contexts of collaborative, extra disciplinary practices with variable coefficients of art. His current research deals above all with the on going usological turn, and current forms of contemporary escapology, in the fields of art and epistemology, examining the conditions of possibility and use of practices which have deliberately withdrawn from the event horizon,  necessitating a fundamental reconsideration and repurposing of the conceptual architecture and vocabulary inherited from modernity. In 2013, he published Toward a Lexicon of Usership.

programs – are increasingly seeing our collectively generated value and meanings captured in the framework of so-called “serious games,” interruptive usership may reveal unthought-of political potential: interruption as continuity in the form of a discontinuity – allowing infiltration and new use to be made of existent flux.

Leaking Social Change: WikiLeaks, Leak Activism and Media Transformation

— Arne Hintz 25 April, 18 h @ Filodrammatica

T

he WikiLeaks publications in 2010 and the more recent Snowden revelations put the role of whistleblowers on the public agenda. Since then, more leak projects have emerged and have revealed cases of corruption and wrongdoing. What have been the social and political implications of these practices? Are we witnessing a democratisation of leaking? Are traditional media undermined or strengthened? This presentation will address the phenomenon of leak platforms in the context of media change, the growing role of data, and the emergence of networked publics.

Arne Hintz is a Lecturer at the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies ( JOMEC ) and directs the School's Research Group Digital Media and Society. His research connects communication policy, media activism, citizen media, and technological change. His publications include the co-edited volume "Beyond WikiLeaks: Implications for the Future of Communications, Journalism and Society", and his current research includes the collaborative project "Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society". He is Chair of the Community Communication Section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research ( IAMCR ). As a citizen media expert and communication rights advocate, he has been involved with advocacy organizations such as the Community Media Forum Europe ( CMFE ) and the Open Rights Group ( ORG ), and policy for such as the UN World Summit on the Information Society ( WSIS ).

Political implications of networks

— Discussion 25 April, 20 h @ Filodrammatica

P

olitical implications of networks is an open discussion on political consequences of organizational and technological progress that shapes our everyday life. This year's Mine, Yours, Ours program offers a number of insights on the development of panoptic system of surveillance, as well as the vulnerability of the system itself. The focus is on politics, but who are the political actors who are behind this surveillance remains ambiguous. The logic of the network focuses more on the questions of how, rather than why, who and for whom. Nevertheless, these are key questions from the standpoint of political community. Ineffable advances in communication, deterritorialisation of our activities and global flows of money and goods and to a lesser extent people, set forth the question of political order. While the public sphere is created in virtual space, we still remain participants of political communities that are based on territory. Can the network bring about changes?

Notein – a humble progressive explorer of electronic music from Rijeka who has been composing for almost ten years and has published quite a number of tracks on several different albums for Transponder records. His work is on the trail of top performers on the electronic music scene such as Autechre and similar artists. He has performed live several times under the aegis of Transponder and is part of the Transponder Crew.

SITO I REŠETO – duo that was created in 2010 in Volosko, from their shared love of various genres of music and shared interests in synthesizers and drum machines. Although physically separated, they are finding ways to create music and experiment with sound, style, and different genres. All resulting in an eclectic mixture of styles of electronic music. For the first time this year they have the opportunity to perform live and present their past years' collaboration. https: / / soundcloud.com / sito-i-re-eto. https: // soundcloud.com / sito-i-re-eto

BLCNY – electro duo from Rijeka consisting of Nevio Rugaš and Bernard Blašković. Two friends who collaborated in the electro pop band Senzorz. Nevio – former drummer in Quasarr and one of the founders of Rijeka's techno / electro / IDM label Transponder records – and Bernard – DJ, composer, arranger, producer and guitarist in various Rijeka pop / punk / rock bands – brought together their synthesizers and drum machines, and started performing electronic music live. Made in Rijeka.

AREXX – long-time DJ, producer and sound alchemist, with a lot of musical experience in the world of electronic music, multimedia and more. From the very beginning he participate in the work of the Transponder Label. https: / /  soundcloud.com / arexx-music http: / /  arexx.bandcamp.com

Transponder

DJ Samo Tako ( Detroit, Electro, Acid ) – “He has been engaged in music production for year or two, he plays various percussions and likes to fiddle with hardware. Some of his work is already out in digital form on one of Rijeka's labels. The music he prefers depends on the situation and mood, and his taste ranges from reggae, dub, dub techno to electro and Detroit techno. In his spare time he turns tables, and does it very well! He is quite modest, so check his work out on his soundcloud profile.”

Transponder records ( from 2006.  > ) is a music label for promotion of electronic music, fusions and research originating in contemporary electronic music. We know and cherish the history of electronic music, musical variations and trends, and we promote music that has its place in space and time. The goal of Transponder Records is to give musicians and producers of electronic music ( not only Rijeka based ) a place – through a shared music profile - for presentation of their work, allowing them to keep their own sound and music recognisability. We want to create a nucleus of quality local electronic music that can present Rijeka as an essential point on the music scene.

Preveden na jezik umjetnosti i aktivizma, poremećaj predstavlja uzrokovanje neočekivanih praksi i intervencija, te igru unutar sustava nadzora. Umjetnost, haktivizam i biznis često se isprepliću, potičući povratnu petlju revolucija i kooptacija koja je funkcionalna za razvoj kapitalizma. Kapitalizmu trebaju naše revolucije jer one generiraju nove životne stilove, proizvode i prakse koje stvaraju nova tržišta i prohtjeve potrošača. Slično tome, sustavima moći potrebni su naš otpor i opozicija jer služe daljnjem razvijanju mehanizama sigurnosti i oblika kontrole. Trebali bismo pronaći nove strategije koje nadilaze sam čin opozicije i koje je pritom teže prisvojiti. Na ovoj izložbi usvajamo koncept poremećaja iz domene biznisa i predlažemo radove koji iskrsavaju iz unutrašnjosti političkih, ekonomskih, tehnoloških i umjetničkih sustava. Igrajući se s njihovom logikom moći, oni uzrokuju viralnost, anonimnost, semantičku pomutnju, višestruke istine i poremećaje. Unutar i između skupina kombiniraju se različita gledišta.

rema riječima Montyja Cantsina koji ga je osmislio, Neoizam je naziv za međunarodni pokret višestrukog porijekla. Ime je fiksno; njegovo korištenje nije. Svrha mnogobrojnih korištenja istog imena je eksperimentiranje sa situacijom za koju nitko nije izravno odgovoran. Neoizam je prvotno nastao kao ideja bez jasne definicije, prazan koncept, kojeg je tek trebalo prisvojiti: tijekom 1980-ih razvio se u međunarodnu subkulturnu mrežu ljudi koji su kolektivno koristili identitet Montyja Cantsina. Mreža se iz Sjeverne Amerike proširila u Europu ( između ostalog u Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo, Njemačku, Italiju, Nizozemsku, Jugoslaviju i Mađarsku ), a kasnije i u Australiju i azijske zemlje. Prve javne neoističke manifestacije odvijale su se u obliku festivala u stanovima te kaotičnih intervencija u umjetničkim prostorima i drugim otvorenim mjestima, koje je u to vrijeme organizirala mlada skupina eksperimentatora i subkulturnih aktivista. Djelatnosti su uključivale zapaljivanje parnih glačala, nošenje mrtvih riba kao šešira, besplatna šišanja, telepat-

nonymousi su u neprestanoj mijeni i pokretu. Informacije o Anonymousima su proturječne, ne samo iz razloga što su ti aktivisti vješti u izazivanju podvala, šala, pa čak i prevara, već i zato što svaki pripadnik može nezavisno djelovati. Štoviše, Anonymousi ne dijele neki univerzalni politički mandat ili ideologiju, osim labave obveze prema idealu prikrivenosti koji se nazire u samome imenu. S obzirom na tu dinamiku netransparentnosti, obmana i igre, sociološka pitanja o pripadnicima manje su zanimljiva od pitanja mašte i djelokruga različitih taktika koje oni razvijaju. Zaista, jezgra samog projekta je dvostrani pristup Anonymousa prema širenju podvala radi izazivanja lulz-a ( derivacija lol-a – “laugh out loud” ), koje nadilazi moralni konformizam i političku korektnost, te prema borbi za slobodu i socijalna prava, i sukobljavanju s korporacijama, opresijom i korupcijom.

eđunarodni krug poštanske umjetnosti, koji je od sredine 1960-ih godina privukao na tisuće sudionika na globalnoj razini, oduvijek je bio grassroots alternativa “službenom sustavu umjetnosti”, na mnoge načine “poremećujući” tradicionalne umjetničke prakse i etablirana pravila tržišta umjetnina. Predmeti poštanske umjetnosti ( razglednice, kuverte, umjetničke marke, itd. ) stvaraju se kao pokloni koji se razmjenjuju među autorima te općenito nisu na prodaju. Poštanska umjetnost je otvorena prema svima. Ne postoje razlike između amatera, početnika i profesionalnih umjetnika, nema selekcije radova, sudačkog žirija, plaćanja kotizacije, ni odbijanja – sve se izlaže. U zajednici poštanske umjetnosti proces je važniji od fizičkog proizvoda.

L

uther Blissett Project bio je primijenjeni mit kolektivnog interesa. S ciljem remećenja kulturne industrije, Luther Blissett je tijekom 1990-ih godina mogao stvarati opću fantazmagoriju i od strane mnogih prihvaćenu filozofiju. Bio je «narodni junak», otvoreni identitet koji se mogao pridružiti svakome ili barem svima onima koji su željeli odbaciti svakodnevicu urbanog života i hijerarhijske mehanizme moći. Luther Blissett također je podrazumijevao duboku kritiku samog koncepta politike, kao i propitivanje autoriteta, sustava vođa i mehanizama političke reprezentacije. Čak i onda kada su mnogi Lutheri djelovali u pravcu remećenja kapitalizma, iz vlastitih su ironičnih razloga također pokušavali prisvojiti popularnu kulturu pretvaranjem svojih činova u dugotrajne kolektivne performanse. Između 1994. i 1999. godine – od kojih je potonja ujedno i godina Blissettovog Seppukua, simboličkog samoubojstva orkestriranog od strane pojedinih ranih urotnika uključenih u LBP – Luther Blissett postao je ikonom za mnoge sudionike

Luther Blissett je višenamjensko ime, kolektivni pseudonim, podijeljeni identitet usvajan od strane stotina umjetnika i aktivista od ljeta 1994. godine, šireći se iz Italije ostatkom Europe, u SAD i Južnu Ameriku. Iz još uvijek nepoznatih razloga, ime koje je posuđeno od britanskog nogometaša afro-karipskih korijena iz 1980-ih, postalo je izrazito popularnim fenomenom i uspjelo se prometnuti u status narodnog heroja.

međunarodne underground scene. Ova instalacija sadrži raznoliku građu koju je Luther Blissett dijelio i distribuirao putem mreže “Bulletin Board Systems” i poštanske umjetnosti, te unutar underground krugova samoorganiziranih događaja i “otvorenih situacija” tijekom 1990-ih.

nna Adamolo bio je fikcionalni identitet kojeg je izgradila mreža Talijana različitih društvenih pozadina i sposobnosti, s namjerom ukazivanja na političku metodologiju koja se primjenjuje za vrijeme sukoba. Anna Adamolo uspjela je postati samostalnom zastupnicom i talijanskom ministricom obrazovanja, sveučilišta i istraživanja tijekom studentskih i profesorskih borbi kojima je 2008. i 2009. godine upravljao narodni pokret ”Onda Anomala” ( “Anomalni val“ ). Anomalni val uključivao je mnoge pojedince i grupacije koji su odbijali svrstavanje u jedan pokret pod istom zastavom no čiji je zajednički cilj bio suprotstavljanje i svrgavanje nacrta zakona o obrazovnoj reformi Mariastelle Gelmini, talijanske ministrice obrazovanja, sveučilišta i istraživanja. Od kraja 2008. godine Anna Adamolo služila je kao kolektivno ime tog nezastupljivog pokreta, koje je na ulicama i trgovima mogao prisvojiti tko god je želio. Korištenje Facebooka kao strateškog medija komunikacije i umrežavanja pokazalo se presudnim, dokazujući kako se društvenim

P

rilagođavajući ideju seppukua ( japanskog rituala samoubojstva ”razrezivanjem trbuha“ ) kontekstu Facebooka, Les Liens Invisibles pozivali su korisnike na deaktiviranje Facebook računa. Inspirirani načinom na koji je Luther Blissett izveo seppuku 1999. godine, Seppukoo kao virtualno samoubojstvo simboliziralo je kolektivno odvajanje od mehanizma predodređenog za stvaranje profita na povezivanju ljudi. Korisnike se pozivalo na pokretanje viralnog procesa samoubojstva kako bi povećali svoj bodovni rezultat u Seppukoo sustavu rangiranja, kao i na poticanje svojih prijatelja na činjenje istog. Servis virtualnog samoubojstva djelovao je putem specifičnog koda koji je proizašao iz narušavanja Facebookovog sustava “Deaktiviranja”. 2009. godine korisnici nisu mogli svojevoljno izbrisati svoje profile, dok je kompanija čuvala sve korisničke podatke. Proces virtualnog samoubojstva započinjao bi korisnikovom prijavom na Seppukoo servis, na sličan način kao i na Facebook. Putem open

Les Liens Invisibles je talijanski umjetnički dvojac čiji rad uključuje eklektično rekombiniranje popularne internetske kulture, izvrtanje inženjerskih tehnika, parodiranje oglašavanja na društvenim mrežama i ponovno prisvajanje medija. Od 2007. godine Les Liens Invisibles započeli su svoju infiltraciju globalnih komunikacijskih mreža u svrhu pridruživanja i proširivanja nevidljivih veza između umjetnosti i stvarnog života.

Troika, 2013, instalacija.

K

ad su se 2007. godine trojica umjetnika učlanili u konzervativnu Slovensku demokratsku stranku ( SDS ), pozdravno pismo koje su primili od predsjednika stranke Janeza Janše završavalo je sloganom “Što nas je više, brže ćemo stići do cilja!”. Nedugo nakon toga, sva su trojica umjetnika službeno promijenila svoja imena u Janez Janša, čime su htjeli preispitati relaciju između imena i identiteta u širem društvenom, političkom i kulturnom kontekstu. Umjetnici izlažu svoje službene dokumente: tri članske iskaznice SDS-a, tri osobne iskaznice i tri kreditne kartice Mastercard s reprodukcijom njihove ranije akcije Triglav na Triglavu ( najviša slovenska planina i istaknuti simbol slovenske nacije, čiji stilizirani prikaz čini središnji element slovenskog grba, zbog čega se nalazi i na slovenskoj zastavi ). Pored izloženih dokumenata prikazuje se i video snimka početne faze operacije promjene imena.

Janez Janša ( SI ) je konceptualni umjetnik, performer i producent koji živi u Ljubljani ( Slovenija ). Autor je brojnih video uradaka, performansa, instalacija i novomedijskih radova koje je predstavio na nekoliko izložbi, festivala i predavanja diljem svijeta. Redatelj je filma Jaz sem Janez Janša ( Ja sam Janez Janša ), suosnivač i direktor Aksioma-e – Instituta za suvremenu umjetnost Ljubljana, i umjetnički upravitelj galerije Aksioma | Project Space. Janez Janša ( SI ) je umjetnik, pisac, performer i kreator interdisciplinarnih performansa te konceptualnih i vizualnih djela. Njegov rad sadrži snažnu kritičku i političku dimenziju i usredotočuje se na odnose između umjetnosti te društvenog i političkog konteksta. Autor je knjige JAN FABRE – La Discipline du chaos, le chaos de la discipline ( Armand Colin, Paris, 1994 ), te je između 1999. i 2006. godine bio glavnim urednikom časopisa MASKA, Performing Arts Journal. Upravitelj je neprofitnog zavoda za izdavaštvo, produkciju i obrazovanje Maska, sa sjedištem u Ljubljani. Janez Janša ( SI ) je vizualni umjetnik čiji se rad nalazi na razmeđi tradicionalne vizualne umjetnosti, konceptualne umjetnosti i novih medija. 2003. godine predstavljao je Sloveniju na pedesetom Venecijanskom bijenalu. Svoje je radove izlagao na bijenalima u Sao Paolu, Pragu, Limericku i brojnim drugim mjestima.

svibnju 2014. godine, Peng! Collective stvorio je dvije persone, “Googleove zaposlenike” Gloriju Spindle i Paula von Ribbericka, i poslao ih na berlinski festival re:publica, konferenciju o tehnologiji i inovacijama s preko 5.000 sudionika. S obzirom na nedavno Googleovo preuzimanje Nest Labs-a i rastuće javno zanimanje za Googleove daljnje postupke u vezi te tvrtke, Gloria i Paul imali su idealnu priliku za predstavljanje Google Nest-a, programskog paketa namijenjenog vraćanju povjerenja korisnika u sigurnost interneta nakon svih potresnih otkrića o pitanjima nadzora. Proizvodi kao što su Google Trust ( osiguranje protiv nadzora i krađe podataka ), Google Bee ( osobni dronovi ) i Google Bye ( online profil namjenjen korištenju u posmrtnom životu ), navodno su kreirani od strane Googlea nakon procjene korisničkih potreba temeljene na analizi njihovih e-mailova i pretraživanja. Ova instalacija prikazuje video lansiranja proizvoda na tržište.

Peng! je kolektiv koji se bavi produciranjem kreativnih političkih smicalica i kampanja pomoću subverzije, humora i građanskog neposluha. Njegovi su se članovi specijalizirali u taktikama direktne akcije, “culture jamminga” i građanskog neposluha, koristeći ih u svrhu opstruiranja politike i biznisa, te kako bi zanimanje medija usmjerili prema temama društvene pravde.

U

siječnju 2013. godine, Lauru Poitras kontaktirao je anonimni izvor tvrdeći da posjeduje dokaze o ilegalnim aktivnostima Nacionalne agencije za sigurnost ( NSA – National Security Agency ). Nakon nekoliko mjeseci anonimnih e-mailova, Poitras je otputovala u Hong Kong zajedno s novinarom Glennom Greenwaldom kako bi napravila intervju s izvorom, Edwardom Snowdenom. Njezino izvještavanje o NSA pridonijelo je tome da Pulitzerova nagrada za javnu službu bude dodjeljena The Guardianu i Washington Postu. Video prikazuje intervju s Edwardom Snowdenom objavljen 9. lipnja 2013. godine, kada se on javno predstavio Poitras i Greenwaldu, otkrivši im u Mira Hong Kong Hotelu informacije o PRISM Programme-u. Režija i montaža: Laura Poitras / Praxis Films.

Laura Poitras je redateljica, dobitnica Oscara za najbolji dokumentarni film, novinarka i umjetnica. Autorica je filmske trilogije o Americi nakon 11. rujna. Radnja posljednjeg filma, Citizenfour, govori o Edwardu Snowdenu i masovnom nadzoru od strane NSA. Zajedno s Glennom Greenwaldom i Jeremyjem Scahillom, suosnivačica je The Intercepta ( firstlook.org / theintercept ).

Korištena kao podloga za razvoj i igru, služi kao pomoćno sredstvo komentiranja neobičnih pomutnji nastalih širenjem PDF dokumenata iz jednog jedinog izvora, uzrokujući skrivene promjene kulturne i političke realnosti. Snowdenove dosjee možete koristiti u svrhu ometanja novinara u njihovom poslu, provjeravanja njihove budnosti i odanosti, ili samo kako bi dodatno nahranili vašu neumoljivu paranoju da su podaci koji su procurili o NSA i GCHQ zapravo dio sveobuhvatne i zle igre o alternativnoj realnosti koju je dizajnirao Glenn Greenwald. Uostalom, kako naglašava Julian Oliver, što mi uopće znamo?

Julian Oliver je Novozelanđanin, kritički inženjer i umjetnik sa sjedištem u Berlinu. U svojem se radu fokusira na softversku umjetnost, forenziku podataka, kreativno hakiranje, računalno umrežavanje, kontra-obavještavanje, objektno-orijentirano programiranje za umjetnike, proširenu stvarnost, virtualnu arhitekturu, razvoj video igara i vizualiziranje informacija. Zagovornik je besplatnog i Open Source softvera, a njegov je rad između ostalog predstavljan u Tate Modern, na Chaos Computer Congress, Ars Electronica i FILE ( japanski festival medijske umjetnosti ). S Daniilom Vasilievim, Julian je 2011. godine primio istaknutu nagradu Golden Nica na Prix Ars Electronica 2011.

Umreženi poremećaji: preispitivanje otpora u umjetnosti, haktivizmu i poslovnom svijetu Uvod u izložbu u MMSU-u Prezentacija kustosice Tatiane Bazzichelli 23.04. u 18 h @ Filodrammatica

P

rezentacija kreće od pretpostavke da su umrežene grassroots zajednice hakera i umjetnika, od trenutka nastanka digitalne kulture i cyber-utopija, u jednu ruku služile kapitalizmu kao sredstvo njegovog ubrzavanja, a s druge su strane doprinijele osnaživanju antagonizama prema njemu, generirajući kritičke umjetničke prakse i haktivističke intervencije temeljene na tehnologijama i metodologijama dijeljenja i umrežavanja. Takvo međusobno remećenje i postojeći otpori između umjetnosti, poslovnog svijeta i mreže pokazuju kako su hakeri i umjetnici aktivni nositelji poslovnih inovacija, istovremeno bivajući njihovim podrivačima. Analiza poremećaja kao kritičkog okvira, te disruptivnog biznisa kao umjetničke strategije, u ovoj prezentaciji postaje sredstvo predstavljanja imanentnih praksi hakera, umjetnika, mrežnih djelatnika i poduzet-

haktivističkih strategija – te preispitivanje praksi otpora u kontekstu umrežene kulture. Tatiana Bazzichelli je kustosica i istraživačica, autorica knjiga Networked Disruption ( 2013 ) i Networking ( 2008 ), te jedna od urednica knjige Disrupting Business ( 2013 ). Voditeljica je Disruption Network Laba, eksperimentalnog kustoskog projekta o umjetnosti, haktivizmu i remećenju, sa sjedištem u Berlinu.

Dva desetljeća kasnije, Richard će se osvrnuti na povijesni trenutak kojim je članak bio inspiriran i obrazložiti zašto je važnost u njemu iznesenih argumenata još veća u umreženom društvu 21. stoljeća. Danas profesor na Fakultetu društvenih, humanističkih i jezičnih znanosti Sveučilišta u Westminsteru, Richard Barbrook se ranih 1980-ih bavio piratskim radio emitiranjem i opsežnim objavljivanjem članaka o pitanjima radijskog medija. Velik broj njegovih tekstova o medijskoj regulaciji objavljen je 1995. godine u knjizi Media Freedom, a iste je godine s Andyjem Cameronom napisao “The Californian Ideology”, pionirsku kritiku neoliberalne politike američkog časopisa Wired, posvećenog raspravama o utjecajima tehnologije na kulturu, ekonomiju i politiku.

Interruptive Usership

— Stephen Wright 24.04. u 20 h @ Filodrammatica

U

suvremenom je društvu kategorija korisništva ( usership ) došla do izražaja u posljednjih deset ili petnaest godina, ponajviše u domeni online 2.0 kulture. Njezina se pojava također veže uz studije invaliditeta i njihovo propitivanje ekspertne kulture, a donekle i uz sve veću rasprostranjenost imersivnih umjetničkih praksi koje izbjegavaju model gledateljstva u korist snažnijih modela angažiranja i povezivanja. No, kakve su politike korisništva? Što su klopke i potencijali ovih drevnih ali tek odnedavno prenamijenjenih formi praktične subjektivnosti? Za početak, korisništvo je ne-revolucionarno ( inherentno ne-mesijansko, nema vremena za gubljenje ), te strukturno bez poštovanja; njegove profane politike srodne su jednoj vrsti radikalnog pragmatizma, jer iako je uvijek disruptivno, korisništvo nikada ne traga za pukotinama ( eng. rupture ), već radije za prekidima ( eng. interruption ). Dok korisnici – mi, kao korisnici

Stephen Wright živi u Parizu, piše o umjetnosti i podučava praksu teorije na European School of Visual Arts. U pisanju se primarno fokusira na politike korisništva, pogotovo u kontekstu kolaborativnih izvandisciplinarnih praksi s promjenjivim koeficijentima umjetnosti. Njegovo se trenutno istraživanje prije svega bavi USOLOGICAL obratom koji je u tijeku, te trenutnim formama suvremene eskapologije, proučavajući uvjete vjerojatnosti i korištenja praksi koje su namjerno povučene s događajnog horizonta, što zahtjeva temeljno preispitivanje i prenamjenjivanje konceptualne arhitekture i vokabulara, naslijeđenih od modernosti. 2013. godine objavio je knjigu Toward a Lexicon of Usership.

O

krugli stol pod nazivom Političke implikacije mreže je otvoreni razgovor o političkim posljedicama organizacijskog i tehnološkog razvoja koji oblikuje našu svakodnevnicu. Cjelokupni program manifestacije Moje, tvoje, naše pruža niz uvida o tome kako se razvija panoptički sustav nadzora, ali istovremeno pruža i uvid u ranjivost tog sustava. Naravno, tu se radi o politici, no tko čini tu političku zajednicu u čije ime se provodi nadzor ostaje nedorečeno. Logika mreže usmjerava i naše razmišljanje tako da više bavimo pitanjima kako nego zašto, za koga i tko. Ipak, ova su pitanja ključna iz perspektive političke zajednice. Neopisivi napredak komunikacija, deteritorijalizacija našeg djelovanja i globalni tokovi novca i robe, te nešto manje ljudi, otvaraju pitanje o političkom poretku. Dok se javna sfera konstituira u virtualnom prostoru, mi smo i dalje subjekti političke zajednice koja se temelji na teritoriju. Donosi li mreža i tu promjene?

DJ Samo Tako ( Detroit, Electro, Acid ) – “Produkcijom se bavi godinu ili dvije te svira raznorazne perkusije, igra se s hardverima, a neki materijali su mu već izašli u digitalnom obliku na jednome od riječkih labela. Glazbu preferira ovisno o situaciji i raspoloženju, a njegov ukus seže od reggaea, duba, dub techna do electra i detroit techna. U slobodno vrijeme pika vinile, i to jako dobro! Pošto je poprilično samozatajan, u istinitost navedenih tvrdnji morat ćete se sami uvjeriti na njegovom soundcloud profilu.”

Transponder records ( od 2006.  > ) je glazbena etiketa za promociju elektronske glazbe, te fuzija i istraživanja s ishodištem u suvremenoj elektronskoj glazbi. Mi poznajemo i njegujemo glazbenu povijest elektronike, glazbene varijacije i pravce, te promoviramo glazbu koja ima svoje mjesto u prostoru i vremenu. Cilj Transponder recordsa je putem zajedničkog glazbenog profila omogućiti prostor za djelovanje glazbenicima i producentima elektronike ( ne samo ) u Rijeci, a da pritom mogu sačuvati vlastiti zvuk i glazbenu prepoznatljivost. Želimo stvoriti nukleus lokalne elektronike što kvalitetom može služiti na čast Rijeci, predstavljajući je kao nezaobilazni punkt na glazbenoj sceni.
