Seeders n Leechers R us

We aim to develop an open model for self-organised “Clip Kino”: micro-cinema, which consists of content downloaded from P2P file-sharing online networks, and popular media sharing platforms.

The ambition is to organise events which drag aspects of the normalized ‘private’ activity of viewing downloaded content into public space for screening, appreciation and debate. The term ‘environmental awareness’ aims to include the social ecology of one’s interests, desires, and attentions in one’s peer-group and community.

Workshop sessions will explore creative file-sharing together in physical-material space, and extrapolate copyright left issues in youth/subcultural terms. Face-to-face facilitation is crucial here, while critical education of IP and public-private space issues is important. ‘Seeder’s N Leecher’s R US’ is intended as a statement of pride and empowerment.
