Thank you all ...

... for joining our last KITTLER_FLUSSER_mediation. It was a pleasure to talk and discuss with you the work of two great and inspiring thinkers. We were happy to have focused our discussion and questioning onto the question of today's utopian visions and their conditions and possibilities. During the next month we will work on our website and the documentation of our projects as well as on the creation of new projects. Next month Paul will be in China focusing on his own research, while Claudia and Rodrigo will go on tour with a new FPF Programm called "Freedom in a programmed world". We will also look at the possiibility of doing some venues also in Berlin.

For the winter term we want to come back with a new programm. If you have any wishes or ideas that you would like to discuss and explore with us, then please get in touch. 

Crisis online

We are happy to present to you the recordings from our second KITTLER_FLUSSER_mediations session on Crisis from december 4th. We read and discussed Kittler's essay "Code (Or How to Write Something Diffently) and the second lecture "Crisis in Alphabetic Culture" by Vilém Flusser from the lecture series "Into Immaterial Culture". In our discussion we focused on the concept of codes, the shift in codification of information and their relevance for thinking today.

MetafluxLab flows

We would like to start first by thanking all the people who have supported and encouraged us to create the MetafluxLab. So here it is! MetafluxLab is online and there are new projects. The Flusserian Philosophical Flux (FPF) is still going strong, so if you are thinking of an event at your venue, feel free to invite us and we will focus on a special topic to suit you.

Next week we will be in Braunschweig by invitation from Klangstaetten | Stadtklaenge Braunschweig – an international Festival for Soundart and the Braunschweig University of Art where the focus of the FPF meeting will be on music and sound.

In winter we will have the start of a new project _KITTLER_FLUSSER : MEDIATIONS which  is being developed in collaboration with Paul Feigelfeld from the Humboldt University. Together with Paul, who was one of Friedrich Kittler's last assistants, we will explore together with the public, over four monthly meetings/workshops, the work of Friedrich Kittler and Vilém Flusser.

A special thank you is also due to Annie Goh and Cornelia Sollfrank for giving us the initial spark, as well as, to Mirco Blitz and Silvan Horbert for programming and designing the website in order to bring the MetafluxLab as a visible entity to the world.
