Event details of White Papers on Dissent
Start date 22 October 2021
End date 24 October 2021

White Papers on Dissent is a public programme on the politics and poetics of Blockchain as a tool for radical imagination. Through panel discussions, artist talks, participatory events, and a podcast White Papers on Dissent aims to collectively practice the making of the world otherwise. By thinking through the technology it rehearses new social and political imaginaries.

Blockchain For Social Good

White Papers on Dissent intends to move away from the economic discourse surrounding blockchain to understand technology as a social apparatus. It investigates how technology can re-address power structures, create alternative forms of governance, and generate new forms of digital activism supporting commons-oriented ecosystems.

  • Hackathon Dinner – The Assets

Black Swan invites local cultural workers and arts organisations to a performative dinner reflecting on the forms of artistic value created by their work. The hackathon aims to facilitate dialogue about the ontologies of art present in existing practices. The learnings will later inform the development of Black Swan DAO, an open-source tool-kit for artistic collectives.

  • String Figures – Ailie Rutherford

String Figures is a workshop intended to reveal the interdepencies that constitute an economy and, in this way, continues the research of White Papers on Dissent, exploring value on a non-capitalocentric manner. This workshop unveils the multiple connections between all the components of an economy, usually these features are hidden as they are not conmensurable in a neoliberal society.

  • Liquid Dependencies – Yin Aiwen

Liquid dependencies: What does a decentralised, caring society look like? is a Live Action Role-Playing game that works both a life simulation and a collective generative social experiment. The goal of this game is to build a commons-oriented society based on care values through long-term relationships, as response to the challenges of the nuclearized, aging future.
