In June 2013, Science Friction hosted an “anarcheological” performance featuring two major scandinavian figureheads of the “Anarchival” crusade – Bitbureauet (DK) and Piratbyrån (SE) – to originate frictions in our Art & Technology gallery in Nørrebro. Bitbureauet curated Piratbyrån’s archive, composed of various discursive texts, bitmaps, algorithms, texts, sub-texts, IRC traces, algorithms, dates, pictures and opinions gathered over a period of 7 years.
The results of the this “anarcheological” performance is presented in this book, where extracted bits have been fixed and print, edited on-the-fly by artist Raquel Meyers as material was pigged out of hard drives and mixed with other media and discourses through algorithmic means and editorial infused decisions. In turn this Science Friction’s edition will stratify once again on the fertile scandinavian grounds of the “Anarchival” beginning in August 2013.
