Bien_Comun Commons

August 31 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The exhibition explores Cuba’s informal economy by documenting two illicit information-sharing operations. Millions of Cubans use a “sneakernet” called El Paquete Semanal (“the weekly package”), a collection of digital material that substitutes for broadband Internet.
Another illegal information service known as the Street Net connects gamers and other community members through a hybrid mesh network supported by homemade routers. “Bien_Común Commons” is curated in collaboration with Claudia Pederson, assistant professor of art history in new media & technology. The exhibition will also be open from 6-10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31, for a Final Friday reception at ShiftSpace, a downtown student gallery funded by the WSU Student Government Association.
