Media, New Media, Post-Media (update: video feed)
Live video feed - £9 / £8 Concessions / £6 ICA Members
Media studies in the UK is associated with sociology and cultural studies, with little discussion of the philosophical issues raised by changing communications technologies. In Germany, however, philosophy of media is an established field. But what is German media philosophy? How has the internet affected the structure of subjectivity? What is 'virtualization'? What is the difference between ideas of 'new media' and a 'post-media' condition?
To discuss these issues, Professors Lorenz Engell and Bernhard Siegert of the International College for Cultural Research and Media Philosophy (IKKM, Bauhaus University Weimar) are joined by Boris Groys (Distinguished Global Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies, New York University and author of Under Suspicion: A Phenomenology of the Media, 2002) and Éric Alliez (Professor of Contemporary French Philosophy, Kingston University). The event will be chaired by Peter Osborne, Director of the CRMEP.
Update - Video feed tickets available

Organized in collaboration with the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), Kingston University London.
