Doris Allhutter: “When I encountered discriminating IT-systems and did not want to take it anymore” – deconstructing affective entanglements in society-technology relations

How to Become a High-Tech Anti-Discrimination Activist Collective

Fri Sep 11, 2020, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
All times are given in Central European Summer Time (CEST / UTC +2).
Library (Learning Center, Conference Room),

This workshop uses the deconstructive method of mind scripting to understand the grip that even technologies that we reject may have on us. Using our own memories as an experimental resource we will explore how discrimination and privilege materialize in our practices. This aims at developing collective agency and activisms.

Registration required: and mail to: by 01.09.2020. 15 participants max.; participants may be filmed and photographed
