Introduction & moderation: Olga Goriunova

Contrary to the belief that software is a very serious issue, a
battlefield of big business interest and freedom fighters, and a field
guided by rationality and formalisation, it is actually an area of
practice and thinking that often advances through random acts, absurd
use, jokes and curiosity.
International speakers will argue that art, and in particular software
art, can play a crucial role in the production of the world,
undermining the seeming solidity of the infrastructural backbone of
our society and opening it up for intervention and reinvention. The
symposium will also explore the issue of fun and the potential of the
humour in software art. What is humour after all? It is in fact an
artistic and critical attitude to reality?
