This is Salvatore and Oriana´s blogpost about their talks in London, including the seminar at the Citizen Participation in Science and Medicine (Jun, 4) on the project “La Cura” organised by citizenbioemdicine:
“La Cura“, an Open Source Cure for Cancer
Hacking Participatory Medicine and the Biopolitics of Data.
When Salvatore Iaconesi was diagnosed with a brain cancer, he hacked his medical records and opened them up, transforming his disease into a participatory, collaborative performance. In the discussion, we will confront with the biopolitical implications of participatory medicine, and of the rituals of ethical hacking, as critical opportunities to reconsider the role of communities and societies in positive, constructive, inclusive ways.
