Reading sessions: Institute of Network Cultures & 3022

Friday 21:00-23:00

This program combines the depth of theoretical inquiry with the participatory ethos of Yaga, inviting attendees to engage with critical texts and contemporary discourse. Hosted both as a televised program and an interactive activity, these sessions create a space for collective reflection and dialogue. These broadcasts serve as a platform for disseminating complex ideas, making them accessible to a broader audience. The discussions delve into topics such as the implications of surveillance, the politics of data, and the philosophical underpinnings of smart city technologies. The “Theory Reading Sessions” aim to democratize access to critical knowledge, emphasizing the importance of theoretical literacy in navigating the complexities of contemporary technological landscapes. By situating these sessions within the festival’s utopian framework, the activity underscores the potential for intellectual engagement to inform and inspire the creation of more inclusive and equitable futures.
