Bureaucracktic Bedtime Stories

Bureaucracktic Bedtime Stories is a collection of contributions in many media that originate from the worksession Bureaucracksy.

This work session brought together artivist practices around the imaginative re-appropriations of rules and regulations, and took place between 7 and 12 December 2020. Bureaucracksy investigated the governance of techno-social systems through the prism of bureaucracy. The execution of rules is an essential element of computation, of digital infrastructures, and of the societies that they operate with. Critical practices of listing, naming, filtering, tool making, care and sharing require that some books are kept.
