1. Why Blockchain?

1. Why Blockchain?

2022-02-0939:02

White Papers on Dissent is a discursive programme dedicated to the investigation of blockchain as a tool for radical imagination. Though panel discussions, artist talks, participatory events, and a podcast it aims to collectively practice the making of the world otherwise, thinking through the technology to rehearse new social and political imaginaries.White Papers on Dissent moves away from the economic discourse surrounding blockchain to understand the technology as a social apparatus. The programme examines how blockchain can articulate new ways of organising in a community circumventing hegemonic economic principles like the accumulation of capital and the focus on productivity. And, thus, reformulate the notion of value beyond the market. In this way, the project investigates how the particular characteristics of the technology can potentially re-address power structures and create alternative forms of governance adapted to the shared goals and wishes of a community. Therefore, the discursive project explores technology as a tool to concoct new elsewheres and otherwises: new forms of utopia with a biopolitical production adjusted to the characteristics and desires of the post-digital society.https://www.whitepapersondissent.xyzThe curator of White Papers on Dissent is Barbara Cueto. She is interested in the intersection of activism, new technologies and contemporary art. She is fascinated with how decentralised technologies are prompting new social constructions that compose new political and economic infrastructures, and how artists rehearse these imaginaries in their practices, giving us a glimpse in a world post-crisis.She is the digital curator of C/O Berlin and a PhD candidate at the Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam.

In this podcast, we hear extracts recorded during the panel discussions and presentations at the discursive programme that took place at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven in The NetherlandsIn this episode we’ll be looking more closely at Blockchain Technologies.  How they could be used as a tool for organizing or collaboration,  and as a way to decentralize society.If you’re expecting to learn about crypto currencies and NFTs, this is probably not your podcast. we’re going to delve into the other, alternative, potential uses of blockchain. White Papers on Dissent is a discursive programme dedicated to the investigation of blockchain as a tool for radical imagination.

3. Redefining Value

In this podcast, we hear extracts recorded during the panel discussions and presentations at the discursive programme that took place at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven in The NetherlandsIn this episode we are going to try to navigate this muddy terrain and question: what is value beyond the market? And how blockchain can reframe the notion of value. We unravel threads of thinking about value in a different way, as a fluid, diverse practice that is not dominated by capital relations. Speculation plays a huge role in this process, so we will explore world-building as methodology to develop more social uses of blockchain. White Papers on Dissent is a discursive programme dedicated to the investigation of blockchain as a tool for radical imagination.

When I was preparing The White Papers on Dissent event I had a conversation with Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck, two UK based artists who have been experimenting with different ideas around the economy and society through the Alternative School of Economics. This conversation was so interesting and covered many of the themes that we explored in Episode 3 that we decided to include some of it as a bonus episode.

In the last episode, we talked about how blockchain reframes the notion of value. And we focused on world-building -methodologies to develop social uses of blockchain. We continue this inquiry and return to the role of artists in this development with a conversation and audio larp by Singapore based artist Shawn Chua. The curator of White Papers on Dissent is Barbara Cueto.
