Reimagine Family Through Blockchain

Mar 15, 2019

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

ReUnion is a blockchain-based speculative project about the future of the institution of the family, the legal categories of marriage and civil union as contractual platforms and units for social organization. The session proposes circumventing the ever shifting legal-institutional framework, and exploring ways in which new technologies, particularly decentralised platforms can facilitate social organisation. Digital technology is already a tool of governance, form algorithmic sorting to social engineering or data harvest through social media. In our case, the aim is to shift power dynamics, so digital technology becomes a tool of autonomous self-organisation, from grassroots level, instead of a top-down model.
