Are you being served?
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
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.
