Aux Yeux de Tous

Film on the surveilance madness in Paris

Location: Amsterdam, Budapest

Time:

Ends:

Film by Cédric Jimenez and Arnaud Duprey shot largely from the perspective of security cameras and webcams. Audio is largely recorded phone conversations. set in Paris.

After a bomb-attack on gare d'Austerlitz in Paris, the security camera footage got lost, but police suspects a known terrorist group. Meanwhile an anonymous hacker gets hold of the lost footage and decides to investigate.

This 80 minute movie is fairly unique in it's choice in video and audio sources, providing an interesting perspecive as seen by the hacker or security personel. The storyline provides a good commentary on both privacy and the relation to currentday governments, comparable as a current day 'WarGames'.

This is the first screening in the Netherlands with english subtitles.

Stylometry, Mapping Data in Slums and Catching IMSI-Catchers in The Hague.
All at ‘De Waag’ in Amsterdam

Program:

Computational stylometry and (your) anonymity
"Computational stylometry is an attempt to uncover some information about the author of a given text. This can be the author's age or gender. Sometimes the author is known to be a member of a specific group (e.g. a political party). In such a case it can be possible to identify which member of the group is most likely to have written the text. This has implications for the anonymity of authors."

With: RZ, Master student Artificial Intelligence

Nairobi Slum Mapping
The mapping and online publication of slums in Nairobi.

There is no comprehensive map of all Nairobi slums. There is a lot of information about the large and well-known slums but hardly any knowledge exists about the smaller slums. Due to this lack of knowledge these small settlements are more vulnerable to illegal evictions. Organizers of evictions and their accomplices find it easier to go ahead because the evictions and human rights violations taking place out of sight of the public. The more information is known about a particular slum, the harder it is to evict it unseen and without protest. The mapping system is connected with a database, where slum residents can upload & collect all kind of digital material. Slum Mapping is both a preventive measure and gathered information can be used for journalistic and legal purposes.

With Ralf Graf, Multimedia Artist, Photo Journalist, Social Entrepreneur & Human Rights Activist.

Catching IMSI catchers
IMSI Catchers are used in mobile networks to identify and eavesdrop on mobile phone communication. How hard is it to catch the IMSI-catcher? We present the tools we used and provide a tutorial and results from a drive through The Hague.

Taking the crypto-pitchfork to the classroom

The Alternative Learning Tank is a nomadic school and artistic organization that focuses in the research, creation and implementation of educational programs on progressive and radical fields of knowledge that are not contemplated by educational institutions. It strives for a reform of those institutions, embracing how knowledge is being produced and transferred in the XXI century. Drawing from precedents such as contemporary social movements, digital rights, hacker culture, new media and a general critical stand point about technology. ALT develops a practice of intellectual production and advocacy at the intersection between pedagogy, art and activism.
