Arne de Boever – Financial Realism

19:00MerveCrellestraße 2210827 Berlin
Ausschnitt This talk looks at the representation of the economy in 20th- and 21st-century "finance novels". It starts from the peculiar fact that more often than not, finance novels have very little to say about finance. The best example here remains Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho: far from teaching its readers anything about the economy, it focuses solely on the psychosis of its main character, Patrick Bateman. Like the psychotic disavowal of reality it documents, American Psycho thus itself... Mehr

Mapping and Picturing

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Mapping and Picturing"For the perceptive nominalist, the varieties of mapping are as multiple as simple matter-of-factual qualities and relations." (Wilfrid Sellars, Naturalism and Ontology, p.60)What Sellars calls 'mapping' is closely tied to his theory of picturing. In this seminar, I want to investigate the link between mapping and picturing. Picturing does not consist in a relation of resemblance between representation and represented. It consists in the structural... Mehr

The Long Con / The Straw Astronaut

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: The Long Con (9:00-12:00)Design inevitably entails an engagement with the logic of the plot, and this session will investigate what this abrupt and unlikely claim might mean. Even the most cursory consideration shows 'plot' to be a strange term, unusually rich. It can refer to an architectural site, as in the ground-plot of a building, as well as a workshop drawing or analytic chart; it also indexes a sequence of fictional events strung into a narrative, and, simultaneously, the...

Feminism and Technology After Firestone / Re-Engineering Embodiment

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Feminism and Technology after Firestone (9:00-12:00)There is a longstanding feminist interest in engaging with science and technology, from the early agitation surrounding the under-representation of women within the STEM industries, to more recent technofeminist work addressing 'the mutually shaping relationship between gender and technology, in which technology is both a source and a consequence of gender relations' (Wajcman, 2004: p. 107).

Diagonalisation in the Space of Reasons / D. in the Space of Sex

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: Diagonalization in the Space of Reasons (9:00-12:00)The notion of "the space of reasons" -- if taken as more than a figure of speech – makes demands on reasons' structure and forms of articulation. And, conversely, how we conceive the structure of reasoning constrains our efforts to conceive the "space" or horizon in which they unfold. In the first session of this seminar, I will be examining, in as distilled and minimalistic a fashion as possible, a certain kind of conflict that... Mehr

The Critique of Folk-Politics / The Future of the Left

9:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Session one: The Critique of Folk Politics (9:00-12:00)This first section will examine the concept of folk politics as it is embodied in contemporary radical political practice. It will start with an initial overview of the problems of folk politics, before moving onto a historical analysis of the rise of folk political thinking. It will set the concept as a response to determinate political problems that emerged post-1968, but that has today become itself a political problem. Taking folk... Mehr

Poesis and Linguistics

9:00-12:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Poesis and LinguisticsOur point of departure is the attempt to read Brandom's theory of inferentialism in a semiotic manner. We focus upon the concept of language as a symbolical (not indexical) system to be understood via a triadic semiotics (instead of a dyadic one). Accordingly the ontology of language is relational, implies wholes, and generates inferences. In order to avoid reducing pragmatics to a simple semantic or discursive register and thereby compromising the holistic project, it... Mehr

Navigating Reason: Duality, Dialectics, and Speculation

14:00-17:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Navigating Reason: Duality, Dialectics, and SpeculationIt is pretty much a platitude that, in the attempt to erect certain boundaries of thought, thought extends beyond those boundaries (e.g. Lawvere's construction of the generic structure of Cantor's, Russell's, Tarski's, Godel's arguments). Typically, these have been understood to be "mere pathologies", which engender contradiction and inconsistency that can be excised from thought before thinking even has chance to begin. Logic is supposed... Mehr

Freedom and Reason / Navigation and Representation

Ausschnitt Session one: Freedom and Reason (9:00-12:00)This first session aims to outline the connection between the concepts of freedom and reason. We will begin by tracing the dialectic of the concept of freedom, beginning with Spinoza and Leibniz's attempts to make free will compatible with the principle of sufficient reason, and showing how this debate is refracted through Kant's account of rational agency. We will see how this refraction splits the Kantian tradition into an authentic Spinozan form... Mehr

Ausschnitt Contemporary capitalism is an object of high abstraction. The symposium is an invitation to discuss and disclose the anonymous and inner tendencies of capitalism, to study its monetary, algorithmic and energetic viscera. How can one grasp the living drives of financial markets and technological innovation? And more importantly: who really produces and controls those drives and how could any alternative political subject emerge without such a complex knowledge?The recent debate on... Mehr

Epistemic Panic and the Problem of Life

13:00-14:00Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 29 10178 Berlin
Ausschnitt Taking as its starting point Walter Benjamin's observation that the acceleration of technological development and informational communication is rendering people 'mute', this paper considers the exclusion of embodied experience from late capitalist epistemology. In a biopolitical reading of life's increasing exclusion from thought, the paper focuses on the inability to inscribe experience into a knowledge regime - both governmental, commercial and philosophical - that adopts a mistrusting and...

Days of Phuture Past: Accelerationism in the Present Moment

14:00-15:00Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 29 10178 Berlin
Ausschnitt The claim of accelerationism is to a dynamism that can break the stasis of the present. In classical accelerationism - the work of Nick Land - this dynamism was located in the fettered forces of capitalist deterritorialization, which had been unlocked and realized in a virtual future. In the retooled forms of contemporary accelerationism dynamism is located in the epistemological possibilities of rational inhumanism, Promethean politics of maximal mastery, and sociotechnological hegemony.

Ausschnitt Electra is embedded within the plane of schizosomatic activities, and it is from there that she draws her oracles. She is a schizosomatic prophet speaking out her own MATRIXIAL body as well the oracle of the body who has split herself off. This makes the whole difference according to the crucial question: in whose name, for whose sake does a philosopher speak, will Electra deliver her oracles, which basically asks the questions: what is it, really, that she has access to?

Ausschnitt Recent discussions over post-capitalism have increasingly been framed in terms of technology, logistics, and infrastructure, with critics reproaching what they see as a naive techno-utopianism, and supporters arguing for technology's potential to change the material possibilities of society. This talk will take on the critics' arguments, pointing out where they make valid qualifications of technology's potential. But it will ultimately conclude that the critics demonstrate a lack of...

The Politics of Anticipation

18:00-19:00Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 29 10178 Berlin
Ausschnitt There is an ongoing contemporary tendency in both activist left political practice and political theory towards valorising the immediate, the spontaneous, and the voluntaristic. While such emphases are explicable given the historical travails of the party form in the twentieth century, these tendencies have given rise to forms of political thinking and action which are seemingly incapable of installing the changes they wish to effect. This paper will therefore outline, as a countervailing... Mehr

Literature as Experimentation: Gilles Deleuze and Literature

19:00Haus der Kulturen der WeltJohn-Foster-Dulles-Allee 1010557 Berlin
Ausschnitt Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari describe art as a capturing of forces. From their early works on, Deleuze's book on Proust (1964) or Guattari's texts on writing as a form of therapy for example, literature plays an eminent role in their philosophy. For Deleuze, the artistic effect of literature is not reducible to a purely linguistic dimension, but rather calls for a new semiotic that goes beyond the discursive: a capturing of forces, a new semiotics of the affects, a logic of sensation.

On a dark planet, warmed only by geothermal energy, the descendants of a pair of stranded human astronauts must reinvent civilization from scratch, guided only by garbled memories of Earth passed down for generations from the original pair of settlers.

A Report on Art

Ausschnitt Historically, one of the functions of art history has been to provide models of periodization. Classical, romantic, modern, postmodern andcontemporary all have their origins as art-historical concepts, which became generalized to theorize wider cultural processes and thus being transformed, and reflected back upon its art-historical meaning, changing it in turn.
