<nettime-ann> So, what about Politics? - #SWAP (Brussels, November 3)

So, what about Politics? - #SWAP
Friday 3 November & Saturday 4 November 2017, iMAL, Brussels
International Symposium

In a critical period of crisis in our political systems, the symposium presents artists, activists, academics using innovative technological tools to reclaim political processes or to shape new forms of organisation, from local collectives to global movements.

#SWAP is a fully packed symposium presenting very concrete avant-garde projects that deal with new forms of political action and governance in the contemporary network society such as liquid democracy, e-governance, civic intelligence, platform cooperativism and autonomous self-organisation.

#SWAP is organised by iMAL (Brussels) and KASK (School of Arts Gent) in collaboration with Institute of Network Cultures (Amsterdam) and Medialab-Prado (Madrid).
