Learn about alternative social networks that are open source, free, and non-oppressive. For beginners without prior experience of coding.

About this Event

If we consider the Internet as an environment—a digital space where limits are imposed upon access just as in physical environments—that reflects the society we inhabit, we come to realize discriminatory principles are embedded in the digital space through racist, sexist, and ableist ideologies and exclusionary algorithms. As this disparity unfolds in digital space, there is a shared responsibility to intervene in these systems of exclusion and to build a more equitable web of care. Divest from Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! Learn about alternative social networks that are open source, free, and non-oppressive. This is a participatory workshop for beginners without prior experience of coding. Participants will learn about emergent strategies to resist the colonization of the Internet.

Taeyoon Choi is an artist, educator, and activist based in New York and Seoul. His art practice involves performance, electronics, drawing, and installations that often form the basis for storytelling in public spaces. His projects have been presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He co-founded the School for Poetic Computation, where he continues to organize sessions and teach classes.

The Tomorrow’s Archives workshop series was conceived collectively in an ad hoc Southland Institute course — “what is programming?”— formed in the wake of Covid-19, and in response to an invitation to contribute programming to the Recent Pasts exhibition.

Recent Pasts is organized by Aurora Tang, independent curator in collaboration with Love’s Remedies (ArtCenter DTLA Residency Project 2020), the Southland Institute, and ArtCenter DTLA. Recent Pasts is supported in part by ArtCenter’s Exhibitions and the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
