    Event description

    This work­ing group will focus on the fric­tion between the dystopian/​utopian aspects of net­worked exis­tence. What got us to this place of war­rant­less wire­tap­ping and data-cap­i­tal­ism? Is there a path­way through the cur­rent cor­po­rate-entan­gled edges of the net­work? Though all manner of utopian myths sur­round the early Inter­net, and by exten­sion its fore­run­ner, Sean Dock­ray and Public Office will dis­cuss the begin­nings that clearly define the ends – and the pos­si­bil­i­ties that live between the cracks.

    Eaves­drop­ping, a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Liquid Archi­tec­ture, Mel­bourne Law School and the Ian Potter Museum of Art, com­pris­ing an exhi­bi­tion, a public pro­gram, series of work­ing groups and tour­ing event explor­ing the pol­i­tics of lis­ten­ing through work by artists, researchers, writ­ers and activists from Aus­tralia and around the world.
