Dear colleagues,

we cordially invite you to the conference „A = ANONYM“ at Kampnagel, 
Hamburg, from October 24th to October27th, 2018.

Social and cultural scientists as well as artists and activists will 
rethink the transformation of anonymity in contemporary societies. 
Discussions, lectures, workshops, performances and an exhibition will 
address and describe changes, boundaries and new options in 
experimenting with, evaluating and enacting regimes of anonymity in 
various realms of live.

Practices and imaginations of anonymity constitute one of modernity’s 
most fundamental cultural formations. Increasingly, contemporary 
societies are supported by and rely on data infrastructures. In 
connection with this trend, we see a reordering and reshuffling of the 
relations between information, property, transparency, privacy, 
collectivity, person and anonymity. How do concepts of individuality and 
the person, of sociality and the collective, of property and sharing get 
modified at the intersections of infrastructure, technology, regulation 
and social practice? What are the effects of changing regimes of 
anonymity for social relations?

The event will take place predominantly in English and partly in German. 
Entrance and participation are free. For the workshops we ask you to 
please register in advance via our homepage (from October). Further 
information on the conference and the research project “Reconfiguring 
Anonymity”, which is funded by the VolkswagenStiftung in its program 
“Key issues for academia and society”, can be obtained at our homepage


and also on the homepage of our cooperation partner Kampnagel


With kind regards,
for the „Reconfiguring Anonymity“ Team
