Abstract:

  • This panel posits that tactics utilized by the hacker network(s) often identified as Anonymous are a response to the terrifying, creative and destructive processes of modernization. We will discuss Anonymous’ history of exploiting the idealized “democratizing” technologies of social networking sites, as well as their GIF, image-macro, and Internet-prank-art, especially in light of recent spillover IRL within the Occupy movement, as a practice of revolutionary cultural production.
