Share A Ruthless Criticism of All That Exists: A Hacker Manifesto 10 Years On

Event Details

2014 is the tenth anniversary of the publication of McKenzie Wark's A Hacker Manifesto. In the intervening time it has been translated into nine languages, not to mention being pirated all over the world. While its theses might have had some modest critical purchase on the state of affairs at the turn of the century, perhaps it is time to take a more critical look at it core propositions, in order to revise, refute or reformulate them for the time ahead. 

In this two day workshop (Friday, April 4th and Friday, April 11th), writers and scholars from a range of fields will be reconsider one section each of the book, subject it to ruthless criticism, and offer exploratory pointers toward new theses that have more bite on the times. The following presenters will discuss the topics of Abstraction, Class, Education, Hacking, History, Infomration, Nature, Production, Property, Representation, Revolt, State, Subject, Surplus, Vector, World:
