Words like subversion and disruption are becoming increasingly difficult to interpret. Exploits once connected to artistic practice, network research, and hacktivism have been integrated into economic models, while the rise of digital populism fortifies a culture of echo chambers and divisive futures. Is it possible to interrupt the subversive dynamic of today’s market and political elite, which seems as ubiquitous as the technologies it depends upon? Can the increased complexity of today’s structures be opposed on non-reactionary terms? Sharing key examples, the panel discusses and re-imagines possibilities for intervening in current economic and political structures.
