(Season 5, Episode B) Experimental Hackbase Camp

  @ Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain)
  8 November -> 9 December (31 days)

What is CHT? + Context

(some pics from previous camps!)

This EXPERIMENTAL HACKBASE CAMP is ... a bunch of people and technology camping in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. About new & deploying existing free technology, theory and art. The goal is to create a functional technological and behavioural recipe/typology (a "lifestyle infrastructure") for a free, post-capitalist society. A lot of work has already been done by the hackbase, and by other people & projects. Everyone is welcome + it's really cheap.
