Der destruktive Charakter

11 Apr , 2018

Er würde eines Tages, vielleicht zufällig, auf diese Tatsache stoßen, und je ...

Abschweifende bis ketzerische Bemerkungen zur Konferenz “Entwerfen” in Frankfurt

Wissenschaftler wissen längst, dass der “wahre” Kongress oftmals außerhalb ebendiesem stattfindet: in den Vortragspausen und auf den Gängen, beim gemeinsamen Frühstück und während des Abendprogramms. Auf die “Internationale Konferenz Entwerfen” (alternativer Link), die über Allerheiligen an der Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität ...

Pegida-Pop: Hirn ausschalten, Bier aufmachen!

26 Jan , 2018  

Die Legende, dass unsere Musik, unsere Filme, unsere Comics automatisch mit dem Progressiven, Sozialen und Liberalen, mit der Verbesserung der Welt verbunden sein müssten, mit dem Geschmack von Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Geschwisterlichkeit – diese Legende haben wir schon seit geraumer Zeit begraben.

23 Jan , 2018  

 As I have argued in the first Moneylab Reader, money is a medium of the imagination. While it is often presumed to be a banal and basic substance marked by its fungibility, ease of use, widespread acceptance and legal status, money also has a dramatic impact on what and who

The Spiral of Police Violence A Work of Art Criticism

12 Okt , 2017  

It has recently come to light that over 31,000 police officers were on duty in Hamburg during last summer’s G20 summit. Of all the footage taken that week, one photograph truly captures the spirit and quality of policing during the G20. What is it about this picture that fascinates us?
