At a lunch talk today at the Goethe-Institut, a panel of artists and experts will discuss political and digital activism on the Web, the open source movement, Twitter, and hackers.
The enormous technological and communications changes embracing the planet and "hacker culture" are primary foci of the discussion which is co-sponsored by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the Embassy of Switzerland.
Other topics include online petitioning, "Anonymous," Wikileaks, and opportunities and pitfalls of digital media. Are digital contributors artists? (This is only a two-hour session?)
