Welcome to DDWG!

The open-ended research on Digital Discomfort cared for by this Working Group learns, dialogues, and experiments with ways to refuse compliance with that which could be referred to as “totalitarian innovation.” From within and beyond specific (infra)structures, Digital Discomfort Working Group's drive is to operate as an agitator of disobedient, practice-based, para-academic research on, across, and despite the techno-colonial establishment of Big Tech. Digital Discomfort Working Group undertakes mundane but attentive experiments to collectively study computational paradigms and to propose instead trans*feminist infrastructural entanglements, anti-extractivist connecting cultures, and intersectional notions of hosting and hostility in the online structures we inhabit.

Thank you for not using fascist infrastructures.
