RSS - Open call on States Machines - Deadline : 31/01/2018



State Machines is a programme of activities devoted to the investigation of new relationships between states, citizens and the stateless made possible by emerging technologies, focussing on how such technologies impact identity and citizenship, digital labour and finance. 


We are interested in works that explore shifts in agency towards individuals, groups and commons from nation states and private companies. We invite proposals that draw on first-hand experiences in:

– efforts and actions that resist new enclosures and preserve mobilities, freedom of assembly and other hard-won rights

– unintended impacts of digital flows on physical bodies, places and infrastructure

– shifting techniques for controls and flows of information and finance by governments, private companies and individuals;

– public deliberation and free speech in social media – algorithmic and human corruption and its counterforces;

– new tools and data for wrangling the personal and political impacts of cloud computing

The call is open to artists, technologists, activists, inventors and individuals, groups and hybrid human- artificial intelligence collaborations.


Deadline : 31/01/2018
