Stuck on the platform? ➠ In der Plattformfalle, Plädoyer zur Rückeroberung des Internets (Transcript Verlag, 2022),  Buchpräsentation mit Geert Lovink im Gespräch mit Anna-Verena Nosthoff und Felix Maschewski (Ko-Direktor:innen des Critical Data Lab, Humboldt-Universität Berlin) am 8. 12. 2022 um 20 Uhr · /rosa, Rosa-Luxemburg-Str 35, Berlin.

Wir sitzen alle in der Plattformfalle! Zoom-Müdigkeit, Cancel Culture, Kryptokunst und psychische Regression bilden die zentralen Elemente einer allgemeinen Theorie der Plattformkultur. Geert Lovink zeigt auf, wie wir in dieser Kultur das Internet zu unseren Bedingungen zurückgewinnen können. Er zeichnet eine rückfallbeständige Geschichte vom Aufstieg von Plattformalternativen nach, die auf einem tiefen Verständnis des digitalen Abstiegs beruht.

Presentation of the Para-Real Manifesto, a dialogue between Cade Diehm and Geert Lovink (in English)

The discussion revolves around the findings and questions of the yearly topic, <New Values>. It will explore how new technologically mediated spaces generated by blockchain or VR can support values beyond the market, such as solidarity or trust. The speakers will release The Para-Real Manifesto, as an invitation to re-think the Para-Real space, a third space between the digital and the real, often misunderstood and misrepresented. What are the limits, possibilities and good practices of the metaverses around us?

Geert Lovink: Extinction Internet (lecture in English)

Extinction Internet is not merely an end-of-the-world phantasy of digital technology that one day will be wiped out by an electromagnetic pulse or the cutting of cables. Rather, Extinction Internet marks the end of an era of possibilities and speculations, when adaptation is no longer an option. During the internet’s Lost Decade, we’ve been rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic under the inspirational guidance of the consultancy class. What’s to be done to uphold the inevitable? We need tools that decolonize, redistribute value, conspire and organize. Join the platform exodus. It’s time for a strike on optimization. There is beauty in the breakdown.
