Hackeja la terra 2018 - Giving back hacking to the people

Invitació Hackeja la Terra 2018 from Calafou on Vimeo.



Hello! We are very happy to inform you that the next 30th and 31st of March and the 1st of April we held our annual event about technology and feminisms in Calafou, Hackeja la Terra. This year we want to dedicate the event to local empowerment, disobedience and popular autonomy.

We want to explore the possibilities offered by free software and hardware technologies to the rebellion of the earth, of the streets. We want, in short, that the Hackeja la Terra be an occasion to meet us again, to continue weaving networks, to create passageways, open roads and break walls, while we build bridges between activist circles and between activists and society in general.

We invite you to think critically and practically the current political moment with workshops, talks and debates. We believe that all this can not be done if it is not from the local and popular level. Therefore, in this edition we bring the hack back to people, where it emerged from and where we believe it is now more necessary than ever.

Workshop against the Wonderbra!

Round table: Sovereignty can be inspired in the struggle of the Kurdish people

Throughout the centuries the Kurdish struggle has been known for several periods of insurrection. The last one started 40 years ago, and lately, a political theory has been developed and started to be implemented in much of Kurdistan, which can give way to the aspirations for survival and development of the Kurdish people, political approaches with the will to be extensible to the struggle of any oppressed culture. In the HTE we will organize a round table where we will be able to discuss the applications in the Catalan case and the possibilities that are suggested to us.

Fertilize the desire

The desire that moves us is sometimes trapped in an egocentric dimension: its strength has to find approval and reciprocity to be fulfilled. And there are several levels of reception of a proposal (from Olé to Oh no!) * We do not consider consensus as a form of inhibition, but as a way of thinking with the body, tuning the listening to the development of a negotiation that takes us to more exquisite forms of game. Why play is about. We will work with verbal and contact stimuli to feed the erotic energy, observing its circulation between the bodies and fostering a creative flow where the excitement is shared potential and advantageous for all.

Cyborg philosophy

"The workshop is based on the definition of Cyborg of the" Manifesto Cíborg "by Donna Haraway, to offer a series of imaginary trips to some of the worlds that are derived from it. Dual, feedback, beyond specificities, sexism, Knowledgeable of every form of domination and at the same time multiplely hacked, cigarette-minting machines, typewriters, pilots of a fly infiltrated between cyborgs. Built-in theories, incarnated, sentenced, condemned to reinvent themselves to survive. Sentenced, condemned to reinvent themselves to survive. Trapped by trying to find a dream that allows them to sleep, a connection that allows them to move, an impossibility that will allow them to wake up in a cyborg body again.

Decoding data and monitoring capitalism: distributed technologies, political networks and common data to democratize networked society (a bit)

The data are the new oil, one of the resources that move about informational, cognitive and contemporary capitalism. The DECODE project raises an alternative paradigm of digital economy. It aspires to develop distributed architecture technologies based on blockchain that allows us to control our data.
