Femke Snelting develops projects at the intersection of publishing, feminisms, and free software. In various constellations she works on re-imagining computational practices to disinvest from technological monoculture. With Miriyam Aouragh, Seda Gürses and Helen Pritchard she runs The Institute for Technology in the Public Interest, a trans-practice gathering of activists, artists, engineers and theorists. Ecologies of Dissemination (with Eva Weinmayr) is a research project on feminist and decolonial approaches to Open Access. Femke supports artistic research at a.pass (Brussels), PhdArts (Leiden), MERIAN (Maastricht) and regularly teaches at XPUB (MA experimental publishing, Rotterdam). With Constant, association for arts and media, she initiated collective research projects, digital tools, methods and publications until 2021. With Jara Rocha she edited Volumetric Regimes: Material Cultures of Quantified Presence (Open Humanities Press, 2022). (2024)
