»Making the Black Box Speak«
In the hypercompetitive environment that Frank Pasquale calls the ‘black box society’, misinformation, concealment and outright fraud increasingly dominate corporate and political power games. Manufacturing information asymmetry has turned into a highly effective tool for gaining competitive advantage across all levels of life.
»Making the Black Box Speak« explores forms of critical and performative practice that cut through the black box. It counters the logics of escalation by escalating renegade artistic and activist resistance against technocapitalism.
