> CARTES FLUX vol2 - Terror & Beautiful Promises with Laughter


April 2007 on -empyre- : TechnoPanic: Terrors and Technologies

April 2007 on -empyre- soft-skinned space: TechnoPanic: Terrors and

with Horit Herman-Peled (IS), Brooke Singer (US), Paul Vanouse (US),
and Sean Cubit (AU)

moderated by Tim Murray (US) and Renate Ferro (US)

From surveillance and mobile technologies to fears and public
panic, the ambivalent attraction of technologies of terror shifts
registers between post-cold war and post 9-11sensibilities, whether
from international or cross-generational zones of engagement. We
will discuss how panic, paranoia, critical resistance to, and
appropriation of technologies of terror are mediated by the threat
and fear of violence in the interlinked networks of mobile media,
domestic space, and the public sphere.

March_2007_on_-empyre-_:__Baudrillard_Enonce,_o r,_The_Future_of_Theory_

Baudrillard Enonce, or, The Future of Theory

with Aliette Guibert Certhoux and McKenzie Wark

Moderated by Nicholas Ruiz III (US) editor, and
Christina McPhee (US)

with special guests Aliette Guibert Certhoux (FR), editor, editions
critical secret, Paris

and, McKenzie Wark, Associate Professor of Media Studies, Eugene
Lang College and the New School for Social Research, New York

enoncer (FR): to convey 'in a particular manner of speaking or
presentation,' quite similar to English 'enuciation,' perhaps with
more subtle depth..

With the passing of Baudrillard, it seems timely and important to
reflect on how philosophy matters, how it is enonce, in our lives.

The conversation will be bilingual in French and English,
translations included.
