We Are Not Sick (John Longwalker & Geert Lovink)

Geert Lovink is a Dutch media theorist, internet critic and author of Uncanny Networks (2002), Dark Fiber (2002), My First Recession (2003), Zero Comments (2007), Networks Without a Cause (2012), Social Media Abyss (2016), Organisation after Social Media (with Ned Rossiter, 2018) and Sad by Design (2019). In 2004 he founded the Institute of Network Cultures at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. His centre organizes conferences, publications and research networks such as Video Vortex (online video), Unlike Us (alternatives in social media), Critical Point of View (Wikipedia), Society of the Query (the culture of search), MoneyLab (internet-based revenue models in the arts). Recent projects deal with digital publishing and the future of art criticism.

John Longwalker is an Amsterdam-based musician, producer, and technology developer. His background is steeped in hip hop, subaltern political and cultural knowledge, and a critical rejection of purity. Longwalkers current projects are far ranging, from the meditative space ambient music of Fire in the Middle, the forward thinking hip hop of FYS Faction, and the musical, theoretical, and technological playground that is We Are Not Sick.
