The Internet has its roots in the American military network ARPAnet, the actual birthplace of the information society. In other words, a society that is massively permeated by information and telecommunications science technologies. These are used to change social components. Design replaces politics. It is a society whose 'governmentality' pursues the comprehensive transformation of reality into information.

The workshop will examine how we act under these conditions and, above all, how we can influence them. The workshop sees itself as a laboratory for segmenting the infosphere, because being autonomous today also means having the capacity to interrupt these networks. The workshop starts with the identification of data stations (e.g. mobile phone antennas) in Halle and the analysis of dependencies and interactions with information technologies. The results of research work and discussion will later be visualized in the form of a mapping.
