Eleanor Saitta and Elisa Gargiulo will discuss the ambiguous and uncertain condition of artistic production and political resistance in the current social landscape based on two lines of research: the faults in programs of security and privacy as well as the historical interdictions for woman to access technologies in the arts. The reflection is directed into a proposition for the construction of secure systems for political organization and civic infrastructure that is independent from central servers, even if symbolically.
