Do you feel trapped by the internet? Are you looking for ways to dance it out, escape the power of seduction your phone holds over you? Tonight, we celebrate not only the latest book by media theorist and internet critic Geert LovinkStuck on the Platform (Valiz, 2022), but we also dance our butts off to music that celebrates the offline sensation that is our bodies. 

To start with, Geert Lovink will go into a titillating conversation with researcher and curator Annet Dekker, after which the night takes a joyous turn with a live drag performance by Lucien Le Chevalier (a.k.a. Anastasia Dolitsay), a french boi who really (REALLY) loves horses, pop trash and clouds, as well as showing off his little derrière

And yes! There will be plenty of room (pun intended) to dance your internet and/or platform-related sorrows away. Eleni Maragkou (a.k.a. justin case), nightlife fan and editor-producer at Next Nature Network, provides tunes for us; think hardcore techno. To close, Maurice Dharampal (a.k.a. Mo Wrights), (new) media researcher, lifts us into another, platform-free dimension with some festive spins.

Geert Lovink is een Nederlandse mediatheoreticus, internetcriticus en auteur van Uncanny Networks (2002), Dark Fiber (2002), My First Recession (2003), Zero Comments (2007), Networks Without a Cause (2012), Social Media Abyss (2016), Organization after Social Media (met Ned Rossiter, 2018) en Sad by Design (2019).  

Annet Dekker is curator en onderzoeker.
