Thinking Collaboration Orchestration


The contexts of the case studies can be discerned in the climate of Amsterdam at the time, and especially in the 'underground' popular culture of music and art and design from which certain practices had evolved. Because I was the producer of the events, the context can also to be traced to some of the theoretical perspectives I had at the time, which influenced the way the networked events were conceived. And Paradiso, as a place with a remarkable tradition, has influenced the way the networked events were able to take place. I will first sketch Amsterdam's cultural and political environment at the time. Then I will describe Paradiso, after which I will address the design of networked events specifically.
