Pocket Democracy

October 25

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until Oct 25, 2019

Free

“Pocket Democracy” is a two day workshop and conference between Berlin and Seattle to investigate how digital technologies can be used for alternative political solutions. All events are free. 

Since their introduction roughly twelve years ago, smartphones have fundamentally altered the political and media landscape. Mobile devices have penetrated almost all fields of life. At the same time, false information, manipulated images and videos, as well as new surveillance practices are posing the question how political dangers of communication technologies might be hedged in the future.

The project “Pocket Democracy“ wants to focus on ideas and agents who see the dangers but who also investigate how digital technologies can be used for alternative political solutions. These concern algorithms that recognize false information or manipulated images and videos, that make visible discriminatory malpractice or that digitally enable free and secret elections. “Pocket Democracy“ begins with a day-long workshop to explore current developments in the field of digital democracy and to work on solutions for new forms of political engagement.
