Lost & Found Information

 

CONTEXT

The issue of (in)direct censorship keeps rising in the Russian Internet since the appearance of a notorious law that justifies immediate banning of politically unpleasant content. The common excuse to allow the blockage of websites or even prosecution of users is advocation of extremism.

 

Description

This protest is an attempt to distribute illegally stolen content and bring it back to the offline context. Readapting the Soviet analogue tactic of secret distribution called samizdat, I propose to create a decentralized network of places for anonymous peer-to-peer information exchange.
