Assange

May 9, 2011

Julian Assange interviewed  by Hans Ulrich Obrist at e-flux journal. The next issue will contain second part, where Assange answers questions posed to him by artists: Goldin+Senneby, Paul Chan, Metahaven (Daniel van der Velden and Vinca Kruk), Martha Rosler, Luis Camnitzer, Superflex, Philippe Parreno, and Ai Weiwei.

In the December 2010 issue of e-flux, Obrist interviews Hakim Bey. E-flux is pretty cool, with essays by Latour, Boris Groys, Franco Berardi Bifo.

Young Assange was inspired politically by Solzhenizin and the anti-Stalinists in The God that Failed.

“the use of mathematics and programming to create a check on the power of government, this was really the common value in the Cypherpunk movement.”
