> In Italy, technological, artistic and political activism is closely
> interconnected, in a common network spread over the whole country, and
> consisting of collectives, activists and artists alike. Their common
> denominator is to give life to an alternative and independent way of
> producing information, cultural consciousness and communication. In a
> specific way, the correct meaning for this network of practices is the
> word "hacktivism". Hacktivism is the fusion of hacking and activism,
> technology and political action. Hacktivism is a rhizomatic, open
> source phenomenon. According to this point of view, hackers are not
> just those who destructively intrude into computer systems (and who
> should be more correctly called "crackers"), but those who share the
> good of knowledge, who fight for free communication and access for
> all, aiming to create and spread knowledge for the public domain.
>
> A practical example of this is the hacker ethic which could be called
> an attitude of gaining knowledge through technology and sharing the
> results, using both technology and knowledge in a genuinely free way
> which overcomes traditional copyright economy.
>
> The exhibition shows this widespread phenomenon and presents to the
> German public the multitude of Italian media and net activism. The aim
> is to give an inside view into this very heterogeneous and in Germany
> so far rarely recognized Italian scene, to provide links to the field
> of art as well as politics. Furthermore it attempts to connect and
> interlink Italian and German projects and activists.
>
> hack.it.art is focused on Italy as a country, in which, due to its
> political and social situation, alternative media networks offer the
> only means to make voices heard in opposition to the dominant media
> monopoly of Berlusconi. This net of counter information is signified
> by its potential to mobilize (through mailing lists, forums etc.).
> This offers the possibility and ability of spontaneous intervention in
> cooperation with other social movements. In a longer perspective this
> seems to imply a great potential of political participation.
>
> The exhibition presents artistic positions which apply themselves to
> social questions and pose a critical point of view towards a
> traditional media landscape and art scene. The exhibition explores
> answers to the question: How can there be independent media production
> in self-maintained network while there is autocratic media and a
> monopoly of communication by the state?
>
> The political aim of hack.it.art refers to an acknowledgement of the
> net as a political space, with the possibility of decentralized,
> autonomous and grassroots democratic participation. Access for
> everybody, information as a free good and the conscious,
> non-commercial use of hardware and technology, the basic concepts of
> hacker ethics, are referred to in this project as political
> objectives.
>
> For six weeks, from the 14th of January till the 27th of February, the
> exhibition will take place at the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien. There
> will be workshops and events on various aspects of Hacktivism. Some of
> the exhibition space will become a temporary media lab for workshops
