Ministry of Hacking: Hacking the Present
What experiences in recent decades have proved to be a basis of
knowledge for an open society of the future? How can these insights be
applied in artistic practice and what is the contribution of hacking, a
factor which rechannels information flows with the aim of sharing?
A team of feminist hackers looks into this question, inviting visitors
to join them in transforming esc medien kunst labor into a server with a
new operating system. Artists, programmers and theorists lay the
foundations for the exhibition with their experiments. But space remains
open, with actions and activities constantly changing the exhibition set-up.
If hacking serves to understand the way in which technology works, then
feminist hacking means examining criteria of inclusion and exclusion in
our society even more closely so as to infiltrate them – with the aim of
evading manipulation and heteronomy. Feminist hacking is thus equally an
act of refusal.
