2020-10-09T08:49:38+02:00

In the webinar ‘The Pleasure of Friction’ Miriam Rasch poses the question how we can resist an increasingly ‘frictionless’  society, filled with smart devices, communicative automation, and ubiquitous surveillance. Moreover, is it possible to do so in a joyful way? If we want to change something in our dealings with technology, it will help if the alternatives have something pleasurable to offer.

During the  upcoming lecture, Femke van Hout will address these questions from the perspective of the philosophy of the body. In sixty minutes, she will discuss four thinkers and artists who challenge the Cartesian division

Online Reading Session #5 LOVE: The Gamification of love and the subversion of intimacy.

The cyber space is a non-neutral space of constant consternation. Multiple dualisms ensue; the individual and the space, the individual and the platform and the individual with their own self-image. It becomes really important, then, to critically engage with the space, decolonize it and reclaim it.

Ever since Galileo first pointed a telescope at the stars in the early 1600s, new technologies have led to new discoveries in science. And since the German zoologist Ernst Haeckel first described the science of ecology in 1869, the field has experienced enormous growth and diversification. The ecology studies the interaction between organisms, as well as the relationships of these biological units with their non-biological environment. Then, Technology
