A Virtual World is Possible: From Tactical Media to Digital Multitudes
Non Stop Future, Dark Markets
Geert Lovink | Florian Schneider (04.10.2003)
The presentation starts with the current strategy debates of the so-called "anti-globalisation movement", the biggest emerging political force for decades. In Part II Lovink and Schneider discuss strategies of critical new media culture in the post-speculative phase after dotcommania. Four phases of the global movement are becoming visible, all of which have distinct political, artistic and aesthetic qualities: (a) The 90s and tactical media activism (b) 99-01: The period of big mobilizations (c) Confusion and resignation after 9/11 (d) Present challenge: liquidate the regressive third period of marginal moral protest
Market-ideology, Semiocapitalism and the Digital Cognitariat
Non Stop Future, Dark Markets
Franco Berardi Bifo (03.10.2003)
At the final stage of the anti-globalization movement Berardi Bifo Franco both analyzes the dynamics of class forces in the last decades and the "movement". He predicts other, less ethically inspired fights in an inevitable struggle against Bush & Berlusconi´s National Liberalism that in his opinion produces ignorance and depression.

Free Bitflows: Editorial
Non Stop Future, Free Bitflows
Konrad Becker | Felix Stalder (June 2004)
In 2004 a digital culture event was held in Vienna to examine the theories and practices for making new cultures of access viable: "how can we organize access to cultural works to match the new freedom of production?"
Torrents of Desire and the Shape of the Informational Landscape
Non Stop Future
Felix Stalder (2008)
Despite very considerable resistance by the established cultural industries, whose business model is predicated on the scarcity of cultural goods, an environment is beginning to emerge where such goods, in their digital form, are abundant. One of the key social technologies of this abundance is peer-to-peer file sharing. Many of the goods on these networks have become abundant in clear disrespect of existing copyright restrictions, placing the providers outside the (commercial) mainstream. Thus, financial profit cannot be regarded as the main driver of this development, even if it is part of it. At the same time, a coherent political or social program cannot be detected either. Thus, file-sharing cannot be thought of as political movement or as part of civil society. What, then, pushing forward this development? The article argues for that file sharing reveals, in its rawest form, one of the fundamental forces generating the emergence of abundance: The desire as will-to-existence, which, in an informational environment, requires producing communication (rather than just receiving it).

Frequently Asked Questions About the Public Domain
Non Stop Future, nettime
Eric Kluitenberg (May 2008)
This FAQ about the public domain has been re-edited for the sixth time after it first appeared in Dutch language. The original Dutch version was the result of an extensive "Public Research" called "Public Domain 2.0", carried out by the Society for Old and New Media (Waag Society) in Amsterdam in the beginning of 1998. Version 7.0.
Myths about Copyright
Non Stop Future, World-Information City Bangalore, World-Information.Org
Lawrence Liang (2005)
The task of this paper has been to examine the various myths that sustain copyright. This is just the beginning of the process of questioning the assumptions on which copyright is based. If we are to seriously engage with the totalising logic of copyright, two tasks lie ahead. Firstly, we will need to continue to chip away at the foundational logic of copyright, exposing the shaky grounds on which it makes its universal claims. Secondly, we need to actively examine alternative models through which we can understand the production and dissemination of knowledge and culture.

30 Years of Tactical Media
Non Stop Future
Felix Stalder (January 1996)
Thus the autonomous production of media for grassroots campaigns has been widely established as a core concern for contemporary political movements, not least thanks to the Tactical Media pioneers of the 1990s. However, its increasing reliance on commercial infrastructure is introducing new points of failure are becoming apparent as the policing of the commercial platforms is getting more intense.

Inverted Towers. Strategies for a Reappropriation of Urban Space
Non Stop Future
Gerald Raunig (May 2003)
The situation might sound very specific, but it has a lot to do with the general processes and problems of a city, with gentrification and the privatisation of public spaces. In the urban setting of expanding control regimes, neither political praxis nor theory can stop at Habermas' concept of the bourgeois public sphere as the place for civil consensus.
Blown Into Peaces. Virtual Cow Kidnapping – A Drama in Four Acts
Non Stop Future
Lisa Mayr (2008)
It was not only Austrian newspaper editors who were confused about this kidnapping case – a hoax from its very beginning, as it turned out later. For some time, it was unclear whether the "kidnapping" of the cow was in fact real, who was behind it, and how the main target of the action, the Austrian federal government, would react.
Swarmachine (en)
Non Stop Future
Brian Holmes (2008)
The close of his book makes clear, however, that what should be sought is not a simple escape into chaos. The point is to find articulations of human effort that can oppose and even durably replace the death-dealing powers of the present society. Right now, the prospects look extremely slim for any kind of grassroots intervention into a highly polarized conjuncture. But if things become desperately worse, or if on the contrary the political-economic pendulum makes one of its swings back to a more confident phase of expansion, the likelihood is that there will be important second chances for radical democracy movements, and new roles for improvised global media. The future belongs to those who can make the experimental difference.

Saskia Sassen (2002)
Technologies have long been recognized as significant factors in production, distribution, organizational forms, and social relations. But today's ICTs are not just any technology. They are reshaping crucial features of democratic participation, control, surveillance, privacy, and war.

Reclaiming Spaces and Symbolic Culture Netbased Public Interventions in Vienna
Non Stop Future
Konrad Becker (2008)
"Street parties" were held in cities all over Europe, Australia, North America, and even Africa. Dedicated to reclaiming public space from being an arena for control society and consumerism, these tactics successfully countered the isolation of diversified urban lives.
The Free Media Camp – Picturing Protest
Non Stop Future, Mediencamp
Patricia Köstring (2008)
The Free Media Camp was a get-together: Almost 100 events took place at the Free Media Camp, hosted by the carrier organisations as well as dozens of other institutions or theorists, artists, DJs etc. Though being conformed to the neoliberal logic by having to "create" events and attracting as many visitors as possible, the idea was too attractive to be dropped: A bunch of people reclaiming public space and gathering, visibly for those not within the crowd, in order to change the system (or at least criticise it).
Reflections on Building the European Cultural Backbone

Andreas Broeckmann (2008)
The political agenda of the European Cultural Backbone and its associates still stands, and it will be interesting to see whether it will be upgraded by the Upgrade! generation, or whether, in a while, we will see ECB activists in politically influential positions where they can offer top-down support for what did not really make it as a bottom-up project.

Non Stop Future
Katharina Wegan (2008)
The days of "liberation" (27 April 1945) and "freedom" (15 May 1955) constitute benchmarks in the Austrian calendar of commemorative events. These dates symbolize the rebirth of both democracy and the Austrian state itself. Ever since 1955, Austrian powers of interpretation have exploited the memory of this "double foundation" of the Second Republic

At about the same time, an obscure magazine aptly named Wired (pun intended) had started to hyperventilate about all things digital.

The complete withdrawal of all funding by the City of Vienna meant that Public Netbase, whose work had provided an interface between art, science, new media, and civic education, had to completely abandon a program that had already stripped in previous rounds of cuts.

Branka Ćurčić (2008)
Contemporary art and media practices suffer a significant pressure of instrumentalization, commercialisation and deregulation.

Und gerade weil die Public Netbase Anfang 2006 diese unbeugsame Haltung letztlich mit der eigenen Existenz bezahlen musste, bleibt sie weiterhin Beispiel für die mögliche Umkehrung überkommener Kulturbegriffe, um so eigene Schächte in die kulturelle Landschaft zu graben – die Auszeit in der Kampfzone wird jedenfalls nicht von Dauer sein!
