Beyond “Control Societies”

5 Jul , 2020  

Radical indifference

Today, the behavioral and receptive patterns of the masses consist mostly of repetitive habits, although as users on the Internet they by no means remain passive, but are constantly involved in the pseudo-turbulent events via the social networks, in order to busily and employment-conform, sometimes even racist, produce ...

Jenseits der “Kontrollgesellschaften”

30 Jun , 2020  

Radikale Indifferenz

Die Verhaltens- und Rezeptionsweisen der Massen bestehen heute zumeist aus repetitiven Gewohnheiten, wobei sie als User im Internet aber keineswegs passiv bleiben, sondern sich über die sozialen Netzwerke andauernd ins pseudo-turbulente Geschehen einbringen, um emsig und beschäftigungskonform, zuweilen auch rassistisch Daten und Informationen zu produzieren, welche die großen ...

Measure, machine, money

22 Jun , 2020  

The aim of the text is to clarify why machines are economically productive only in capitalism and therefore in our society are capitalistic machines. They are capitalist not only because they increase the productive power of the capitalist valorisation, but this valorisation first of all is producing these machines, or ...

20 Jun , 2020  

Unternehmen aus dem Silicon Valley haben seit den 1990er Jahren eine globale Expansion realisiert, die den Kapitalismus als solchen weitreichend transformiert.

Über den Atomismus

28 Mai , 2020  

Die Isolation der Individuen ist konstitutiv für die bürgerliche Gesellschaft. Die Vereinigung der Gattung durch die unsichtbare Hand, dann den Staat und durch das große Kapital, all diese Techniken der Macht setzen die radikale Isolation der Menschen bereits voraus. Ins Nichts geworfen zu sein, doppelt frei und dann gezwungen, sich ...

Covid-19: Philosopher Bernard Stiegler’s Insight from the Angle of Memory

23 Apr , 2020  

Our current economic model is centred on physical and symbolic hyper-communication between almost every place throughout the world, and this considerably increases the danger.

The Paucity of Digital Theory

11 Apr , 2020

In an initial sense, the uncomputer comes out of whatever is subordinated or excluded as a result of the standard model of the digital. The excluded term might be the ...

Data Does Not Organize Itself

9 Feb , 2020  

In researching the relation between weaving and computation, I ran across this astounding passage by Ellen Harlizius-Klück:

Deleuze/Guattaris Diagram

7 Feb , 2020  

In antiquity, the word “Dia-graphein” referred to the inscription of a line, namely in geometric tables, lists, musical notations, etc. Not only were plans and figures designed with the help of lines, but there were also numerous markings and even crossings, which then called into question the stability of the ...
