"projects & protocols"
"Private and public protocols control, organize and define society in our lives. They generate a set of regulations that exercise a sustained influence over our private as well as over our public behavior. Rituals, conventions, rules ... protocols cover a variety of procedures and, in one way or another, they attempt to use, define, control or exercise power." Antoni Muntadas
In his talk "Projects and Protocols" Antoni Muntadas will introduce some of his projects and working methodologies that make visible and deconstruct the power of protocols.
