Workshop: “From the democratization of cryptography to the appearance of cryptocurrencies”

servus.at Clubraum

Workshop with Martín Nadal and César Escudero Andaluz.

Economy, Knowledge and Surveillance have been placed at the service of production, describing a new expression of power generated by the accumulation of information in the networked world. This historical context of relations between intellectual property, piracy, consumption goods and homogeneity of money is counterbalanced by cultural movements and communities defending the open society, proposing free access to information and speculating with non-monetary futures.

This is a Workshop addressed to those who have concerns with Media Art, Digital culture, Critical Economy and research to create a diagram which traces the democratization of cryptography and the appearance of cryptocurrencies as probably the most influential events of what we have called the ‘Cryptocene’. The Cryptocene can be understood as a period of time featured by a significant use of cryptographic systems and its impact on the surface of the Earth with ecological, economical and political consequences.
