Anonymity is an often discussed and questioned term – how is it perceived, changed, defended, or even eradicated? Under the heading A WIE ANONYM (a like anonymous), a four-day program of conferences, exhibitions, and workshops invites the audience to meet with experts from the arts, sciences, and technology to discuss how anonymity emerges and how it can be utilized in contemporary and hybrid online-offline-worlds.
