SAVE THE DATE: INC Conference March 9, 2023 at Spui25 and March 10, 2023 at Framer Framed (both in Amsterdam)
Hybrid Tactics in The Crisis Era
This two-day conference will start with a day of panel talks on the 9th of March at Spui25 and a second day of workshops, expert sessions, and other (hybrid) experiments at Framer Framed on the 10th of March. Topics range from hybrid solutions to (virtual) togetherness; green tech, tactical media and the war in Ukraine; memes beyond the static image to employing (memetic) moving images in line with the work of INC’s Video Vortex network which has been focusing on the politics and aesthetics of online video since 2006. What sort of hybrid tools can help evade the current crises? Can the on and offline world, filled perhaps with low and/or green tech, help us navigate an environment in which data and information are used as a tool for power?
Save the date and consider yourself most welcome to attend panel talks, workshops and expert sessions around media activism, tactical intimacy, TikTok and the moving meme, hybrid publishing, living archives, and much more.
This INC conference is organized within the framework of the two-year research project Going Hybrid, a partnership sponsored by Raak/SIA with partners such as MU (Eindhoven), The Hmm (Amsterdam), Hackers & Designers (Amsterdam), Willem de Kooning Academy (Rotterdam), Framer Framed (Amsterdam), Varia (Rotterdam) and IMPAKT (Utrecht). The project researches with a hands-on approach the future of hybridity in the cultural field; specifically, the possibilities that lie within hybrid publishing and participatory live casting, as well as living archives.
