*Openism* unravels the varying perspectives of key practitioners and
theoreticians on the development of open hardware across the globe
including Richard Stallman, Joshua Pearce, Andrew Huang, Katherine Scott,
Madeline Gannon, Silvia Lindtner among others. In a series of
conversations, the potential for, and the consequence of an openism
approach is demonstrated through stories of 3D-printed stethoscopes in the
gaza strip, hacked open Xboxes, trained robots, DIY gynecological equipment
and complete science labs built out of open hardware.

*Karl Salzmann [AT] *is a sound artist that works within processual and
experimental setups. He develops and presents works that study the
materiality of sound and its social, cultural and metaphorical levels of
meaning. His artistic activities mainly concern the interaction between
sound and visual arts and often relate to works and topics of (sound) art

*Víctor Mazón Gardoqui [ES]* works through actions, arrangements and
obstructions -between- sound materiality and dislocated information. His
work questions perception, altered state and vulnerability through
un/stable arrangements. Mazón Gardoqui is currently the RIAT recommended
artist-in-residence at Q21 in MuseumsQuartier.

*Openism: Conversations on Open Hardware* features *Alicia Gibb, Andrew

*RIAT Research Institute for Arts & Technology* is an independent research
cluster in Vienna that investigates how technology and art relate and
inform each other. It consists of four labs focusing on open hardware,
experimental publishing, the blockchain, epistemic cultures and artistic
