Henrik Chulu

Independent writer and speaker

Bio

I'm deeply curious about how emerging technologies challenge established power structures and make new forms of organization possible. And about how it all comes back to bite us once we think we've won the future.

I focus on infrastructural literacy as a core skill set and will help you make sense of your digital environment in order for you to make better decisions about the safety and effectiveness of you and your organization.

Please get in touch if you need my help sharpening the edges of your project for impact in the form of concrete, positive outcomes, or if you have information relevant to my investigations. You can also hire me for speaking engagements and training workshops or commission pieces of writing from me.

I wrote Danish language features for the major daily Politiken on surveillance and privacy and on smart cities.

At the gallery Science Friction, I curated content from the archives of Piratbyrån for the exhibition Anarchival: The End-to-End Principle. The result was edited into a print volume in collaboration with artist Raquel Meyers as part of the art fair Alt_Cph 13.

For House of Real, I developed the digital concept for Syriatypes, a transmedial documentary project.
