Are you being served?
http://vj14.constantvzw.org

The fourtheenth edition of Verbindingen/Jonctions by Constant, from 12th 
till 15th December in Brussels, is dedicated to a feminist review of 
mesh- cloud- autonomous- and D.I.Y. servers. Welcome to four intense 
meetingdays mixing lectures, screenings, performances, discussions and 
workshops.

To stay connected across multiple devices, we have come to expect 
unlimited access, provided by companies that traffic large amounts of 
data as a result. The necessary infrastructure that is put in place 
effects our understanding of place, both virtually and physically and it 
has become increasingly difficult to be intimate with the technologies 
that we feel familiar with. We started to wonder about what would make 
current networking technologies into hospitable habitats for critique, 
as space for artists and solidarity, teaching and learning.

What does it mean to serve and to host? What should server technology of 
today be about? How to re-appropriate networks for creative experiment? 
How to invert, detour, parasite and deflate web 3.0 notions of ’service’?

Join fellow geek-artists, techno-fanatics, queer theoreticians and phone 
flashers and brainstorm with us! With amongst others: Reni Hofmueller, 
Domaine Public, !mediengruppe BITNIK, Maria Guggenbichler, Paul Otlet, 
Aymeric Mansoux, the Amazing Service Providing Robot and many others.
