Note: in Science Center Room 110.
An event on Cyberactivism and Culture Jamming where we'll explore the interplay between digital technologies, activism, and the ability to modify and critique cultural institutions.
Featuring four speakers:
Ji Lee, Artist and Creator of the Bubble Project
J. Salvatore Testa, Defender of Truth and Liberty, Hacktivismo
Prof. Fred Turner, Stanford University and author of "From Counterculture to Cyberculture"
Prof. Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Harvard VES Dept., teaching "Art and Activism since 1989: Culture Jam"
The format will be interactive. We'll first have short presentations from each of the speakers, then we'll break up into groups that will discuss ideas, issues, and projects with each of the presenters. We may even venture off to do some culture jamming ourselves afterwards.
Sponsored by Boston Free Culture and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society with support from the MIT Computing Culture Group and others.
