> Bojana Kunst and Igor Stromajer: "Impossible Connections"
>
> The presentation will focus on the recent projects created by
> Intima Virtual Base: Ballettikka Internettikka
> (www.intima.org/ballettikka) and wPack (www.intima.org/wpack),
> which are using impossible connections to develop the possible
> strategies of resistance and disobedience. The projects are
> participating in the already existing protocols of
> communication, but without being servile to them, opening up
> links between emotionality and technology, production and
> ethics, desire and organization, imagination and institution.
> The distribution of politics and intimacy without any reason and
> purpose, with the use of limited, incestuous, defined and
> controlled protocols is a dystopia and a nonservile revolt to
> the world of capital, which can be disarmed only with the use of
> its own incestuous tactics.
