    The Darknet is considered a counter-reaction to the World Wide Web and aims to enable a completely uncensored communication protected from monitoring. As one might expect, the anonymity offered there is used in both socially desirable and ethically undesirable ways. Just as well, it raises a wide variety of contradictions in other respects. Darknet expert Stefan Mey and the curator of the exhibition "Data Ctrl Centre" Daria Kuziawa discuss the Darknet as a counter-model to today's totally monitored Internet.
    Stefan Mey is a freelance technology journalist in Berlin, comes from Halle/Saale and is part of the journalist group Schnittstelle.
