The Bureau was formed in Melbourne Australia in 1991 by engineer/theorist Natalie Jeremijenko and radio journalist Kate Rich, with artist Daniela Tigani; and incorporated in the Cayman Islands in 1992. It was originally constructed as an anonymous group, a kind of guerilla technical intervention into some of the emergent techniques and technologies of the Information Age. BIT works with Information Technology as its primary material, re-engineering technical systems to address the hidden politics of technology. The anonymity of the Bureau was in part a strategy to reflect on the anonymity of technical production - the diffused accountability and ethnographic anonymity in which information technologies and software are generally produced.
