Media Theory / Netculture

Although my background is in comparative literature, philosophy, and translation, I think of myself as a media theorist; media theory (not sure where it belongs in a disciplinary division of labor, let's just say it's a transversal practice) has become a way to frame other interests that inform (sometimes simply irrupt into) my teaching, thinking and writing. I publish regularly, often with close collaborators - a research practice (as craft, as collaborative constitution) that I consider a real privilege.

 

Lecturer in Media Theory at the Academy of Fine Arts Saar, I also co-initiated and currently work as Managing Director of the academy's xm:lab - Experimental Media Lab. My work at xm:lab frames (institutionally and conceptually) my research activities, and I frequently co-develop projects with my colleagues from Communication Design, Fine Arts, Media Art and Design, Media Informatics and Product Design with a particular focus on practice-based and transcultural approaches.

Courses / Seminars

WS 2017/18

Kursbeginn: 26.10.2017

Do 11:00 - 13:00

Medientheorie: Maschinenerfahrung / Erfahrungsmaschinen

Wir leben im Maschinenraum. Wie gehen wir damit um, mit welchen Begrifflichkeiten erschließen wir uns diese neuen Erfahrungsräume, wie gestalten wir dieses Zusammensein-mit-Maschinen? Medientheoretische Streifzüge durch das Denken über und mit Maschinen, gemeinsam mit Gefährten aus Kunst, Literatur, Philosophie und Technologieforschung, die das Verhältnis von Mensch und Maschine zu bestimmen versuchen.

Do 14:00 - 16:00

Medientheorie: Das Prinzip der Plattform

Angetrieben von der Fantasie der Berechenbarkeit individuellen und kollektiven Handelns, verwandelt sich der Kapitalismus in eine Plattform, auf der alles mit allem verrechnet werden kann. Gleichzeitig erleben Paradigmen der Selbstorganisation in der Plattform-Ära eine Renaissance - Peer-to-Peer-Netzwerke verkoppeln soziale und technologische Maschinen und stehen im Zentrum alternativer Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsmodelle. Eine Einladung zur Auseinandersetzung mit konkreten Entwicklungen in der ‘collaborative economy’ und zur Entwicklung von Denkmodellen in der Tradition sozialer Technikgestaltung.

Besprechung von BA/MA-Arbeiten nach Vereinbarung.
