Datacide Launch Event in London – Sunday October 20 at Vinyl, Deptford

No Comments

An evening with talks and music to mark the launch of issue 13 of Datacide, the international magazine for noise and politics.

It will feature talks from Datacide contributors, including:

– David Cecil (Uganda) – Confessions of an Accidental Activist – Sexual politics and homophobia in Uganda -David found himself in the media spotlight in 2012/13 after he produced a comedy drama in Kampala (Uganda) which was mistakenly portrayed as a piece of ‘gay activism’. The US evangelist movement, international rights activists and the mainstream media have all contributed in different ways to misleading perceptions of sexuality in Uganda. Meanwhile, more substantial and complex factors of post-colonial socio-economic transformation have been (deliberately?) overlooked, along with the actual experience of daily life for LGBTI people in Uganda. The author will give a brief presentation
focusing on the politics of identity in Uganda, and looks forward to a discussion on international sexual politics.

– Neil Transpontine (London) on the 1990s movement against the ‘anti-rave’ Criminal Justice Act. Twenty years ago the UK Government announced its plans for new laws notoriously targeting gatherings with music ‘characterised by repetitive beats’, sparking off a mass campaign of opposition.

– Christoph Fringeli (Berlin) on Datacide magazine.

Sunday night sounds from DJ Controlled Weirdness.

The event will take place at Vinyl (4 Tanners Hill, SE8) the new record shop/bar/cafe/gallery in Deptford
from 7-10 pm

Nearest rail stations: Deptford Bridge DLR, Deptford; buses including 453, 177, 225. Ten minutes from New Cross London Overground.
