Books, code and networks

Tuesday 21st, 15:00-17:30
Language: English

An afternoon presenting two lectures dealing with books, libraries and archives in a digital perspective. We have invited Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter and Nikita Mazurov to present their research and talk about virtual libraries, copies, and code related to books and media. The lecture relates to Jonas Ingvarsson’s lecture: “Modern technology is the best friend of the book – about the digitization, knowledge and future libraries“, presented at the humanist library the same evening.

15.00  –  15.45      Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter
16.00  –  17.30      Nikita Mazurov
18.00 –                   Jonas Ingvarsson

Nikita Mazurov is a researcher interested in investigating modes and strands of resistance to intellectual property; particularly in wholesale rejections of IP, including anti-copyleft movements and unbridled piracy practices (both material and digital), and in further exploring potential modes of ensuring archival longevity and availability of information.

Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter is an artist exploring means of control (code, organisation and law) as well as geopolitical aspects of information architectures. Her artistic practice takes the form of interventions reflecting upon or revealing hidden gaps within digital infrastructures – the place where a system fails and its inadequacies become visible. Linda is currently a doctoral candidate at K3 – School of Arts and Communication, Malmö University, Sweden.
