Description

Critical Making FutureEverything Conference, Manchester 2014 In the same way we have stopped taking for granted that “openness” is an intrinsically positive quality, an increasing number of voices are requesting today a more critical evaluation of “making” and the merits of a DIY approach to tech. Are the Maker Movement and the Hackaton ideology truly transformative, or are they just a distraction void of any true social effect? This talk explores whether Critical Making – understood as the practice of questioning and reimagining tools – is a necessary practice today, and how can it be a culturally relevant form. Speakers: Golan Levin Garnet Hertz Justin McGuirk http://futureeverything.org
