20.00 - KREAS Colloquium / Panel II (Louis Armand, Václav Janoščík, Noemi Purkrábková, Lukáš Prokop, Lenka Veselá)
The panel will speculatively question the position of difference and sameness on the level of culture as determined by technological means. In what ways have cybernetics kept their original meaning of “steering” capital towards a presumed end point, and how can such a sense of looming universality be rethought, resituated and repurposed? What is the potential for a cosmotechnical shift from “Western” technics, and where to find space for what Yuk Hui has termed “technodiversity” which, going into the future, might be a prerequisite for the continued sustainability of diversity and life on Earth? Discussion follows.
Louis Armand (FFUK), Václav Janoščík (AVU), Noemi Purkrábková (FFUK), Lukáš Prokop (FaVU VUT), Lenka Veselá (FaVU VUT)
