LIVECAST SERIES | Rights to the Blockchain City

Dates: 10 Feb, 17 Feb & 24 Feb, 2021
Time: 18:30 CET 
Where: Online via Pakhuis de Zwijger

This is a series of three livecasts around digital ledger design, organised by MAB20 organiser Hogeschool van Amsterdam – Play & Civic Media, together with: Institute of Network Cultures, Het Nieuwe Institute and The University of Edinburgh. As more and more blockchain projects engage in urban systems such as (local) governments, commons communities, and social entrepreneurship, it is becoming clear that they have much greater consequences and influence social systems in fundamental ways. Join a multidisciplinary group speakers in an instigating conversation about the impact of urban blockchain governance systems and explore what might life be like among all these blockchains.

 

Session #1: The uses of disorder in the blockchain city searches for the human in the machine, featuring designers and researchers that explore the (im)possibilities of human messiness in optimizing blockchain governance systems.

Session #2: Values in the blockchain city looks at proposals from researchers, artists and technologists for blockchains designed with solidarity and fairness as core principles.
