This post was made to the blog for Flusser Lesegruppe
just wanted to send you some info about date and structure of the class. We start on both days (July 21 and July 22) at 3pm and end at about 7pm or later depending on the state of discussion and our endurance. Also, we could end the days with a bbq in the courtyard.
Over the course of the two days, Claudia Becker and Rodrigo Novaes from the Vilém Flusser Archive as well as Paul Feigelfeld (Humboldt University Berlin, Institute for Media Theories) will guide us through readings of "The Crisis of Linearity", the unpublished essay "Imagination" and a chapter of Novaes’ recent English translation of a Portuguese version of the "Vampyroteuthis infernalis".
The seminar will commence with a short screening of an interview with Vilém Flusser and a brief introduction to Flusser's life and work. Afterwards, the structure of the seminar is very simple: each of the short texts will be read out aloud and discussed along the way.
