The London Graduate School presents:

Media After Kittler

 

Media determine our situation.

F. A. Kittler (1999), Gramophone, Film, Typewriter

Two years after Kittler’s death, at a time when subjects like media studies are under fire by neo-liberal governments across the West and seen as ‘luxury’ disciplines not worth investing in, there is an urgency to rethink, re-imagine and review media and what it/ they can do. In Kittler’s words, we are the subjects of media not the masters. This one day event examines the implications of this statement, his work and the potentiality of approaching media as a thought experiment.
