• Keynote: The Black Stack

    Friday, 31.01.2014, 17:00 - 18:30 h
    Auditorium, Haus der Kulturen der Welt


    Benjamin Bratton and Metahaven will take turns offering proposals on the future of The Stack's six layers—Earth, Cloud, City, Address, Interface, and User.

    Planetary computation and its geographies can be modeled as a coherent platform, a vertical software/hardware "stack". In his forthcoming book, The Stack: On Software and Sovereignty, Benjamin Bratton explores this topography as a geopolitical framework, one defined by accidents and contradictions as much as by inventions and efficiencies. The design group Metahaven's forthcoming publication, Black Transparency, focuses on the political and aesthetic regimes of contemporary transparency, and their coexistence with networks, institutions, and various (dis)organised groups. The latest in their series of ongoing collaborative discussions, Metahaven and Bratton will take turns using the stack's six layers—Earth, Cloud, City, Address, Interface, and User—offering proposals on the future of each.
