Mareile Kaufmann: Hacking as a Practice of Disputing Online Surveillance

In this episode we present a talk given by former Weizenbaum fellow Mareile Kaufmann on the topic of “Hacking as a practice of disputing online surveillance”. Her talk draws attention to hacking practices that interrogate the diverse faces of online surveillance. Instead of portraying hacking as a simple counterculture she seeks to complicate dichotomies of power vs. resistance, online vs. offline and looks at the back-and-forth negotiation character of hacking practices.
