AMLO: A decade of socialist success -
Essay and archival material produced for BLACK BOX EAST: HOW SOCIALIST CYBERNETICS HELPED THE GDR UNLEARN MARXISM-LENINISM (30/03/2021)
Today we celebrate the efficiency of AI and other progressive computational technologies without enough attention on the benefits this has to boardrooms and big tech at the cost of precarious and marginalised work forces. The use of technologies has become the ultimate weapon of Western Capital.
It is time to think about anti-capitalist alternatives, such as the "cyberneticised workers' self-administration" in the GDR in the 1970s. Berlin Gazette writer and director Kevin Rittberger and artist Nicholas Mortimer come across a Marxist-Leninist Academy in Berlin-Wuhlheide and analyse a previously unknown find.
