The Internet of 2016 isn’t the free and open place the pioneers of Web envisioned in the 90s. Instead of a space composed of millions of independent and interconnected nodes, the digital life of hundreds of millions of users passes exclusively through 4 or 5 services, where they produce and consume conversations, images, songs or videos. This centralization also affects musicians, filmmakers and artists, who are tied to certain conditions by their owners, sometimes with creative consequences. As a part of the We are Europe project, TodaysArt, Sonar+D and Insomnia explore new ways of cultural entrepreneurship that seek to answer the urgent question: How can we decentralize the Internet for citizens and creators again? Using the Blockchain as the jump off, this session will explore alternatives for hosting, distributing and making digital culture accessible in an autonomous and safe way. The session comprises presentations and talks by Joachim Lohkamp, Lars Holdus, Manuel Beltrán, Beer van Geer and Roeland Landegent, and will be moderated by Jonathan Looman + Daniel Erlacher
This project is presented in the framework of We are Europe by Insomnia Festival and Sónar Festival.
