On the opening day, the participants will address the main narrative of the conference in three steps. In the Critique of Wakefulness, the conference will take issue with the fight against institutions of a security society. The problem is that the civil sector, demanding more transparency, appears to be reverting to the same security-based means to achieve it. In the Politics of Sleep, the discussion will focus on and illuminate the problematic nature of free and protected spaces where one can withdraw and de-network. And finally, the participants will reassess what Freedom in the Age of the Network and Complete Transparency truly means and discuss ‘security by the people for the people’.
On the second day, the main narrative continues in the form of meta-commentaries, excursus and epilogues based on the slogans Becoming Sleepers and It Is Time for New Openings. In addition to lectures, discussions and panels, the programme includes scenic readings, film presentations and performances. Workshops titled Protecting Private Data, Using Public Data on Saturday and Self-empowerment 24/7 on Sunday will provide participants the opportunity to discuss the issues at eye level.
