Program

15.00 – Round table 

NFT, Quadratic Vote and Common Wallets 

Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield), Emanuele Braga, Cem Dagdelen (CurveLabs / The Sphere), Massimiliano Mollona (Goldsmith University/IRI) in discussion with Erik Bordeleau,  Massimo De Angelis and Jerszy Seymour

We gather around this table projects and researchers that experimented in the last decade on how to use blockchain and crypto-economic for the process of commoning. The challenge here is how to use technology, not for a blind techno-optimism, replicating the capitalistic financialization of the social, competition and individualism, but on the opposite, how new technologies could infrastructure the planet to come. In this round table, we question how NFT, decision-making process, fundraising and common management of resources can be the technological answers to political questions. 

17.00 – Lecture

We Too Have a Code:  Notes Around Digital Commons and the question of Programmability

Erik Bordeleau

We need to cultivate a new feel of the infrastructure that is up to the challenge of political organizing in the digital age. How do we conceive of the becoming machinic of the social, and the becoming social of the abstract machines we are part of? And how does that concern the formation of cosmo-financial or crypto-scalable commons to come?  Taking Deleuze & Guattari’s notion of surplus value of code as a starting point, this presentation will explore the question of organization as digital incorporation in an age of monetary experimentation, following the development distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and the emergent field of blockchain-based cryptoeconomics.

18.00 – Performance

NEW PARADOXES OF THE POLITICS OF CARE 

Both ethics of care and care practices have moved forward during this last crisis. One of the aims of this collective 3-sessions-iteration would be to analyse this new tension among groups whose “care practices” were active from before the Covid-19 turn and also with groups which have been rising during covid. 

We plan to start a conversation among collectives by asking: 

  • who cares and who is cared for? 
  • what needs of “socialising care” (redistributing) are we meeting now? 
  • which tools are we using or building new because of new needs? 
  • how have reconfigured the public language/space/media. 
  • how care is becoming a term of the power, governments, media? 
  • which conflict in our practices are we finding? 
  • which relations we found among our “autonomous” practices of care and the role of the public sector nowadays?

GESTURES OF RADICAL IMAGINATION: A PROGRAM FOR THE USEFUL REVOLUTION by Emanuele Braga

Image WHO

translation by Gabriella Riccio

Do we change, now? It will probably always be worse: the techno-authoritarian drift

Coronavirus management risks dragging everyone into techno-authoritarianism: a social life awaits us in which we are controlled every move we make. Through GPS, cell phones, cameras in public spaces and streets it will be possible to understand if we really respect the rules of social distancing. At first they will tell us that their data collection will respect anonymity and that it will be performed “only” to understand mass behavior. Then they will come to individual sanctions and integrated ranking systems. Those who are unemployed will have to stay at home or go shopping at the most, only those with a job will be allowed to move or take a plane.

Relationship between the visible and the invisible
