Dissent and Datalove?

The Institute for Dissent and Datalove is a loose collective comprised of hackers, artists, activists and tinkerers. It overlaps with networks of solidarities involved in active defense of free speech and free/libre technologies, technology critics and political interventions.

The Institute for Dissent and Datalove has so far mostly been used for operations of de/re-contextualization of large datasets, de-formatting of formats and playful use of liberating algorithms.

It tries to criticize and deconstruct itself, while remaining grounded in uncompromising collective practices of autonomy and solidarity.
