Presenting: Parallel Polis (institute Of Cryptoanarchy).

Critically acclaimed Czech art provocateurs collective Ztohoven comes to Red Gallery LDN on Friday 26th January to present their latest project.

The Ztohoven name is itself a Czech-language pun, and can be read either as Z toho ven ("The way out"), or Sto Hoven ("One hundred shits"). The group translates the name into English as "Out of shit".

This event will include lectures and Q&A by ethical hackers Pavol Luptak, Juraj Bednar as well a special lecture by Martin Leskovjan on the Paralelni Polis (Institute of Cryptoanarchy) project itself.

Ztohoven explores the connection between the arts, science and technology as a tool to highlight the authoritarian tendencies which have entered into our daily lives. The main topics of their research and education program are digital freedom, decentralisation, new technologies and cryptocurrencies.

The lecture describes the current as well as predicted impacts of crypto-anarchism and the shared economy on the future of human society. What was the situation in this area in 2015? Where have we moved from now on, and where do we head over the next few years? You will learn about the possibilities of anonymous cryptologists that bring financial freedom, but also about the risks associated with the development of the political situation in the world.
