Christoph Brunner, Raimund Minichbauer, Kelly Mulvaney, Gerald Raunig (eds.): Technökologien (2018) [German]

25 September 2019, dusan

“Im dividuell-maschinischen Kapitalismus geht Technologie weit über die dichotomen Figuren von Techno-Euphorie (maschinischer Fortschritt in der Hand von Menschen) und Techno-Phobie (Menschen als Instrumente der Maschinen) hinaus. In so unterschiedlichen Feldern wie finanziellen Derivaten und Kryptowährungen, digitalen Schnitten und Data Doubles, biometrischen Filmbildern und sozialen Medien werden Technologien zu Umwelt, Umhüllung, Umgebung.

Mit dem Begriffsvorschlag Technökologien und Beispielen aus der Medienarchäologie der 1990er und 2000er Jahre, vor allem aber anhand der Untersuchung konkreter aktueller Praxen versucht das vorliegende Buch, diesen Verschiebungen gerecht zu werden: In der Mitte der technökologischen Subjektivierung, die nicht selten die Form von Wut, Angst, Hass und Häme annimmt, ergeben sich auch neue Weisen der Affizierung, neue Äußerungsweisen, neue Verhältnissetzungen von Technopolitik und sozialer Bewegung.

Mit Beiträgen von: Christoph Brunner, Marco Deseriis, Katrin M. Kämpf und Christina Rogers, Brigitta Kuster, Stamatia Portanova, Gerald Raunig, Álvaro Ruiz, Raúl Sánchez Cedillo.”

9 July 2019, dusan

“The Plantationocene is an alternate name for the epoch often called the Anthropocene. Inspired by the scholars and artists visiting University of Wisconsin–Madison as part of the 2019-2020 Plantationocene Sawyer Seminar, this series aims to create a conversation about multiple forms of plantations, both past and present, their materialities, the economic, ecological, and political transformations they wrought, and their significance to the making of human bodies, capitalism, and land over the course of four centuries.”

Contributors: Sophie Sapp Moore, Monique Allewaert, Pablo F. Gómez and Gregg Mitman; Deborah A. Thomas; Raina Martens and Bii Robertson; Leanne Day and Rebecca Hogue; Kwynn Johnson; Donna Haraway and Anna Tsing, a.o.

Critical Art Ensemble: Aesthetics, Necropolitics, and Environmental Struggle (2018)

22 February 2019, dusan

“With typical sangfroid, CAE dissects the beast of our own making: the Anthropocene. Clarifying the philosophical roots of the Euro-American confusion about nature, this text offers severe and essential medicine for coming to terms with our ecological predicament.” –Claire Pentecost, professor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

“This book presents a perspective about the environmental crisis that I suspected was there but couldn’t put my finger on. Follow these authors deep into one of the biggest cultural lacunas of our day: necropolitics. This book fully abandons solutionist bull in favor of a measured approach grounded only in what we know. Read it, weep, and then kick ass. Once again, CAE has blown my fucking mind.” –Mike Bonanno, The Yes Men
