HORhaus + Manifesto
The Hackers of Resistance (HORs) invite you to their HORhaus, an interactive performance for groups of 10-15 where comrades are called upon to aid a HORs sister organization that advocates for public health in the face of government suppression. Each comrade has a codename and, together, the intel needed to unveil dark secrets of cyber surveillance and safely leak files without being knocked off! Players use their swift type and quick wits to confirm the fears of the 99% with something so flammable, it ignites a revolution.
In the installation, visitors are free to roam the HORs’ makeshift hacker den where environmental storytelling provides a cyberfeminist take on cybersecurity, community resources, and DIY-DIWO (Do It With Others) experiments. The HORs' manifesto plays on a loop, and a laptop is available to explore a hacked database at one's own pace to unearth the past, present, and future of cyber surveillance and community organizing.
The Hackers of Resistance
The Hackers of Resistance (HORs) is a queer transfeminist hacker collective of artists, activists, researchers, cyborgs, witches, and technologists, of color. Co-conspirators, we build tools to defend our community, educate people to be secure, to demand and make ourselves heard, to fight back and hack tools of oppression.
