Presentations and launch of publication at transmediale, Akademie der Künste, Berlin, on 2nd Feb, 11.00-12.30. Following a process of open exchanges and a three-day research workshop in London, at London South Bank University and King’s College, London, the presentation/publication brings together researchers who address the problems of technological scale, thinking through the potentials of ‘the minor’; or what we are referring to as minor (or minority) tech. As such, the publication sets out to question the universal ideals of technology and its problems of scale, extending it to follow the three main characteristics identified in Deleuze and Guattari’s essay (Toward a Minor Literature), namely deterritorialization, political immediacy, and collective value.
