Talk: “A Stroll Through the Dark Web”

Date: Tuesday, March 26 | 6:30PM

Location: Room 3317

All are welcome; advance registration through Eventbrite is appreciated:

Matt Goerzen will give a brief rundown of the history, applications, and aspirations of the “dark web” and its infrastructure. The talk will involve a cursory tour of the TOR network and consider a number of contemporary artworks and digital artifacts in its characterization of this fabled place. The talk will touch on artist interventions like Random Darknet Shopper by Mediengruppe Bitnik, radical (and often vaporware) social experiments, and artifacts from mailing list archives, and other communities.

Matt Goerzen studies cultures of anonymity, and the technologies that enable them. His current project is to establish a cohesive framework for discussing media vulnerabilities by importing terms-of-craft from computer security research. He is a Researcher on the Media Manipulation project at Data & Society.
