After the war, Germany was a divided and suffering country. The war destroyed music. Official channels were dominated by schlager – kitsch pop that was supposed to please and placate the masses.

Technology and thought – lecture cycle on media philosophy

Even if we usually understand the computer as a tech invention, its epochal importance lays primarily in its role of transforming human thought as such. The computer was born from a 20th century crisis of though, as it cannot in any universal way combine the action of thinking, with that which is thought. As the computer practically materializes this though paradox, it forces us to come to terms with the fact that, thought might not be an exclusively human thing. Čítaj viac »

Technology and thought – lecture cycle on media philosophy

Pavol Fabuš’s second lecture from the Technology and Thought cycle. As much as we might feel that media have been following humankind from its beginning, we can really start talking about it in the 20th century. Our musings on their nature stem mostly from significant multiplication and omnipresent spread – medialization. The thorough examination of their nature and origins brings just not just to the questions „What is a human? “, but also to the realization that media doesn’t truly exist. Čítaj viac »

Guest Juraj (blog Karmína)

The Swedish historian and political ecologist A. Malm warns, thats actual state of the planetary ecosystem is the result of a specific socio-economic apparatus, which over the last centuries has distributed its networks across the globe. In the lecture we show how this massive apparatus originated, how it depends on the living nature and how it transforms and reproduces. This helps us to suggest scenarios of post-capitalist future, that are under consideration now.
