Barcelona – The theme for this year’s IAM Weekend is The Quantumness of Archipelagos, which sets out to understand the internet.
Over the course of the weekend, 400 creative thinkers will tackle the question: how can we decelerate, decolonise, and debrief the co-evolution of the internet(s), digital technologies, and societies? To aid this discussion, speakers including urbanist Tomas Diez and posthuman philosopher Dr Francesca Ferrando will address topics such as decelerating ecosystems, debriefing imaginations and browsing the ethics of design, foresight and AI.
‘The Quantumness of Archipelagos is a ‘what if?’ remix of ideas coming from philosophy, geography, queer theory, and quantum physics, shaped as an experimental thinking tool to deal with the complexity of our realities and a lens through which we can imagine alternatives, collectively,’ explains the co-founders of IAM, Lucy Black-Swan and Andres Colmenares.
LS:N Global will be reporting live from IAM Weekend 19, March 21st– 23rd. For more information on the speaker line-up and tickets, click here.
