Disruption Network Lab is an ongoing platform of events and research focused on art, digital rights and disruption. The programme takes shape through a series of conference events at Studio 1, Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin and internationally. The goal is to present and generate new possible routes of social and political action within the framework of human rights, digital culture, art and hacktivism, focusing on the disruptive effects of technology in society and everyday life. The Disruption Network Lab presents projects that disrupt the field of information technology in unexpected ways, shedding light on interventions that provoke political and social change. The Disruption Network Lab is a conceptual and practical zone where digital rights advocates, investigative journalists, whistleblowers, artists, hacktivists, and critical thinkers enter into dialogue. The programme is developed through keynote presentations and panel discussions. Directed by Tatiana Bazzichelli.
