An Archaeology of Imaginary Media
An Archaeology of Imaginary Media - Excavating mankind's dreams of the ultimate communication medium was a mini-festival in De Balie in Amsterdam around the eternal return of mankind's desire for the ultimate communications medium. Will technological progress finally resolve the human communication problem? The mobile phone mania demonstrates a compulsive attempt to arrive at an affirmative answer to this question. Digging in the history of human communication and its media provides ample grounds for serious doubts. Held on 5-8 February 2004.
