About this seminar
Throughout this seminar we will depart from the term open source and move from there in different directions. We will read, discuss and do exercises together, to dive into the histories of open source, free software, open licenses and artistic practices that evolved from it, that started to work with forms of copying, versioning, piracy, collective authorship, open access, etc.
Recently however, there is a shift of interest to be noticed in Free / Libre and Open Source culture, where the politics of openness are morphing into discussions rooted in the politics of organisation. We will develop small research projects that depart from these questions, subjects and methodologies.
Little starting help on how to read a wiki:
The main page shows most of the features provided by the wiki.
Under WHO/WHAT/WHERE you find most of the wiki pages sorted by Names/ Importance/ Bots.
Most of the people linked the created content on their personal pages. Apart from that you could use the recent changes section for navigating through the contents.

About this wiki
During this seminar we will use this wiki as a online collective writing space, to store the research, work-in-progress and materials that will emerge in the coming months.
We use a specific type of wiki software, called Mediawiki: a tool for collaborative reading, writing & sharing. As we will work around the subject of open source tools and culture, this wiki serves as a hands-on experience of creating and documenting research, discussions and projects in a collective manner.

This wiki is part of the seminar Open(?) Source(?) at the HfG Karlsruhe, which took place between October 2020 and February 2021 in the middle of the Corona pandemic. We met every second Wednesday online and interact with the wiki page, hardly knowing each other offline – only online.

Question: does the school hold copyright over material that is produced in seminars?
How far do we go? Do we thank the Chinese workers who built our Laptops, allowing us to participate? Do we thank the African miners who mined the minerals necessary to produce our technology? Do we thank the Earth for producing those minerals in the first place?
What about the privilege of having time+means to study?
