|[Nettime-nl] [Nictoglobe][Final Call - New Media as Soft Arms] deadline June 30th|
Sorry for crossposting Creative Resistance New Media as Soft Arms [Final Call - deadline June 30th ] "How to avoid life itself becoming an immaterial product?" When the abstract (as a better circumscription of creative/culture/knowledge) industries consume its own producer, the eternal immaterial Heilstaat is reached, forever lost of its materiality , the human race at last is able to fulfill its final goal, the complete abandonment of all things earthly and material. ?Body without organs? as a final solution. Human life itself as commodity. Makeable on demand, like the right to reproduce as you like it. Body shopping in the real world. The destruction of criticism. Health care, the whole health industries, society?s policy towards privileging certain gen technology driven program which purpose is to repopulate the world full of happy, creative people. China?s campaign of excluding potential parents from adoption by judging them by there weight. Reasoning: fat people produce fat people, which is not of our liking. An exhibition, currently in Amsterdam where the corpses of executed Chinese criminals are exposed to entertain the public. People tend to forget their past. Only one generation ago, there was a strong discourse on how to shape society with the then vivid memories of Dresden, Hiroshima and Auschwitz in mind. It looks like this particular view is abandoned and very naïve the same roads are once again taken. To take a position in this field of conflicting and immense influential mechanisms is both important and difficult to achieve. Destructing the past as a promise for the future? There are more questions then answers, that is why we have to produce ?good? questions to be able to demarcate the necessary steps to be taken , not to repeat ourselves and making the same mistakes over and over again on a much bigger scale. ?New? media has to be armed as a protective force to defend the future. Subvert!
