NOT COVERED: A view to counter-publics today.

NOT COVERED brings together international independent projects using new media technologies to create “own” public spheres. Activists and platforms that work in very different social and cultural contexts will discuss the contemporary notion of counter-publics. What are the particular conditions for the construction of (counter-) publics by use of own distribution channels and communication structures? In our fragmented public sphere, what does the concept of counter-publics exactly mean?

We often speak of the media as if it were the public sphere itself. In NOT COVERED we will try to analyze reasons and consequences of such pre-given notions. What is the position of media in the social and cultural structure? What are the perspectives today? Which role can grassroots networks play in this structure and what is their relation to media-empires?
