This year's summer academy took place remotely and the kick off was broadcast live (twice!) from our studio in Amsterdam.


This year, we critically and practically engaged with technology, reflecting and reimagining distributed practices. We learned together about network technologies in experimental and hands-on ways. Under the overarching title "Network Imaginaries" we pushed the boundaries of existing technology and programming platforms (webware, hardware, software), online/offline networks, high and low tech (internet, IPFS, darknet, peer2peer, blockchain, bot networks, radio), and user experience—all in a practical manner and while addressing the ethical implications of the proposed technologies and processes.


This year, we also introduced our Code of Conduct
