Aymeric Mansoux

Aymeric Mansoux has been involved in several projects that challenge the understanding of copyright, free culture, and online surveillance: make art, a festival for artists using and writing free software; »Puredyne«‚ a live GNU/Linux distribution for media art; »FLOSS+Art«, the first collection of essays on FLOSS and media art; »Naked on Pluto«, a Facebook game about privacy and communication mediation within proprietary and commercial social network software. His latest collaboration, the »SKOR Codex«, is a raw digital data publication documenting the life at a disappearing art institution in the Netherlands. Aymeric is currently a senior lecturer at the Willem de Kooning Academie and the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam (NL). He is also a Ph.D. student at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths, University of London, where he is researching the creative misunderstandings between art, politics, and the law within copyleft practices.
