Friday 7 November 10:00-23:00 @ Hangar And more...Mixed experienceThis workshop asks how digital tools can refuse strict separations between ‘users' and ‘developers', both in the way they are built and how they are put to use. Mixed experience starts from experiments by artists, designers and programmers affiliated with Constant and design caravan OSP. Our tools are sometimes built from scratch, and often combine existing packages in ways that allow actual experiences of and with software. Rooting our work in the culture of Free, Libre and Open Source software allows us to critically interrogate how tools condition our practice but above all is an invitation to use, study, distribute and improve software. It inspires us to mix the expertise of ‘users' (...)

Wednesday 5 November @ BAU Design College of Barcelona And more...Considering your toolsWorkshop for tutors at BAU design college of Barcelona. With Gijs de Heij and Eric Schrijvers (OSP). This workshop starts from our experience with using Free, Libre and Open Source software in our (graphic) design practice. We would like to share what this means for our own work, and more particularly how it has an effect on our ideas about design education. Free culture challenges traditional art-education paradigms because it invites participants to move between roles (teacher, student, developer, user) and because it necessitates a fundamental questioning of the political and cultural heritage embedded in the technologies that we employ. Art- and design students are typically (...)
Friday 31 October @ Württembergischer Kunstverein And more...We don't live in this kind of worldFor the seminar Public Library. Über Infrastrukturen der Wissensbildung (Public Library. About infrastructures of knowledge formation), Femke prepares a new episode of Fathers of the Internet, charting the overtures between an Internet giant, local governments and a historical archive. "In 1944, Belgium universalist and documentalist Paul Otlet died a disillusioned man. In his lifetime he only partially realised The Mundaneum, an encyclopedic survey of human knowledge which would 'progressively constitute a permanent and complete representation of the entire world'. While Otlet is being rediscovered as "a founding father of the Internet", Google adopted the remains of his archive in Mons. (...)
