In the business world, disruption means to introduce into the market an
innovation that the market does not expect. This innovation comes from
within the market itself. Transferred into the field of art and
activism, disruption means to generate practices and interventions that
are unexpected, and play within the systems under scrutiny.
Art, hacktivism and business are often intertwined, generating a
feedback loop of revolutions and co-optations that is functional to the
development of capitalism. Capitalism needs our revolutions because they
generate new lifestyles, products and practices that create new markets
and consumer desires. Similarly, systems of power need our resistance
and opposition because they serve to increase security and forms of
control. We need to find new strategies that go beyond the mere act of
opposition and that are harder to appropriate.

Networked Disruption is an exhibition and a series of events produced by
Aksioma and Drugo more in collaboration with several partners and
curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli. The exhibition, hosted by Škuc Gallery
in Ljubljana and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka, is
centred on the concept of "Networked Disruption", as an opportunity to
show new possible routes of social and political action in the line of
disruption. It is based on Bazzichelli's book "Networked Disruption:
Rethinking Oppositions in Art, Hacktivism and the Business of Social
Networking/(DARC Press, The Digital Aesthetics Research Centre of Aarhus
University, 2013).

The exhibition shows a diverse constellation of networking projects that
aims to actualise – and to question – the notion of "networking": Anna
Adamolo, Anonymous, Billboard Liberation Front, Burning Man Festival,
Cacophony Society, Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša, Julian
Oliver, Laura Poitras, Les Liens Invisibles, Luther Blissett, Mail Art,
Neoism, Peng! Collective, Suicide Club, Telekommunisten, and Trevor Paglen.

In this exhibition we adopt the concept of disruption from business and
we propose works that emerge from within political, economical,
technological and art systems. They play with their power logic
generating virality, anonymity, semantic confusion, multiple truths, and
disruption. Diverse points of view are combined, among the groups and
within the groups themselves. By keeping such connections open without
reaching a curatorial synthesis, we invite visitors to create their own
path in the line of disruption.

The artworks and collective projects are conceptually and visually
interlinked in the exhibition spaces, which constitutes a network of
networks. By applying the strategy of "working from within”, some
sections of the show are conceptualised in collaboration with people
deeply involved in the networks under scrutiny: Vittore Baroni (Mail
Art), Florian Cramer (Neoism), Gabriella Coleman (Anonymous), John Law
(Suicide Club and Cacophony Society), Andrea Natella (The Luther
Blissett Project) and members of the Anna Adamolo network. This choice
reflects the perspective that a new methodology of curating a research
should open a metaphorical (and physical) space to encourage and provoke
feedback loops among theory and practice, and among subjects and objects
of analysis.

In the exhibition and seminar, we involve actors who directly engage
with hacktivism, art, civil liberties and social networking exposing
contradictions of capitalistic logics and power systems. Such
interventions hijack the logic of business itself, appropriating and
détourning it by operating disruption. The challenge is to collectively
rethink oppositional hacktivist and artistic strategies within the
framework of (social) networking, information economy and increasingly
invasive corporations and government agencies.
