ALT DELETE

Alt-Delete is a series of workshops and talks designed to enable the curious and creative with the means to expose hidden networks in our digital world.

Taking the Exposing the Invisible Kit developed by Tactical Tech as a starting point, this series of exploratory workshops hopes to galvanize participants into probing the corporate, techno-political infrastructures around them and encourage reflection on our relationship with the same.

Using practical skills and techniques alongside various creative approaches that draw from areas including adversarial design, media archaeology and hacktivism, participants will be encouraged, and supported, to initiate and develop their own investigations.

Over the next few months, Alt-Delete will be running these workshops with the intention of hosting a public event in Spring 2020 which will show the outcomes of participants research and practice.

All disciplines and technical levels are welcome – from visual art to essays and from zero tech experience to too much experience.
