Coded Cultures > Coded Cultures: Openism

Coded Cultures: Festival for fringe research and experimental arts. OPENISM is the 6th issue of Coded Cultures discussing concepts of openness with a focus on open hardware and open technologies and their implications for art, science and society. It is a critical forum to debate the relevance of these technologies and to investigate critical strategies of technological appropriation, which in their different approaches and cultural techniques are constituting communities of practice.

The festival features over 80 national and international participants and is structured into labs, workshops and performative interventions. Additionally, the festival implements micro-conferences, such as the first Dogecoin Austria Meetup and the first austrian Risography convention. A social space (Coded Cultures Central) is installed, featuring a Critical Repair Cafe, the «AXIOM Open Source Cinema Lab» and the «Open Publishing Lab».
