A book launch and presentation by author Konrad Becker
Join us for the release of Konrad Becker's Strategic Reality Dictionary. Becker will present a compelling slideshow that seeks to define the terms by which hacktivists and tactical media practitioners like Critical Art Ensemble and the Yes Men infiltrate and subvert the global information system.
"Strategic Reality Dictionary (Autonomedia, 2009) offers seventy-two keys to the construction, imposition and maintenance of contemporary systems of inclusion and exclusion, which only function for two principle reasons: because of stealth, and because they are able to engineer our own unconscious beliefs." (Brian Holmes)
A reception follows. Event co-produced by Autonomedia.
