Betreff:     A = ANONYM Conference in Hamburg - SAVE THE DATE

Dear colleagues,

we cordially invite you to the conference „A = ANONYM“ at Kampnagel, Hamburg, from October 24th to October 27th, 2018.

Social and cultural scientists as well as artists and activists will rethink the transformation of anonymity in contemporary societies. Discussions, lectures, workshops, performances and an exhibition will address and describe changes, boundaries and new options in experimenting with, evaluating and enacting regimes of anonymity in various realms of live.

Practices and imaginations of anonymity constitute one of modernity’s most fundamental cultural formations. Increasingly, contemporary societies are supported by and rely on data infrastructures. In connection with this trend, we see a reordering and reshuffling of the relations between information, property, transparency, privacy, collectivity, person and anonymity. How do concepts of individuality and the person, of sociality and the collective, of property and sharing get modified at the intersections of infrastructure, technology, regulation and social practice? What are the effects of changing regimes of anonymity for social relations?

The event will take place predominantly in English and partly in German. Entrance and participation are free. For the workshops we ask you to please register in advance via our homepage (from October). Further information on the conference and the research project “Reconfiguring Anonymity”, which is funded by the VolkswagenStiftung in its program “Key issues for academia and society”, can be obtained at our homepage

and also on the homepage of our cooperation partner Kampnagel

With kind regards,
for the „Reconfiguring Anonymity“ Team
