Worksession ·

The Technogalactic Software Observatory

The Techno-Galactic Software Observatory was a worksession that explored methods and practices around software that allow for forms of critique without distance. It took place from 7 until 12 June 2017 in the World Trade Center Tour in Brussels.

The Techno-Galactic Software worksession has been called ’Observatory’ because we are interested in potential ways to look at software, and in the implications of how it is currently probed and scrutinized as part of its production. Techno-galactic because we wanted to extend the observation to include different scales of computation, of software communities and their political economies.
