Abstract

WÜST - CONVERSATION MODERATED BY KRISTOFFER GANSING
On August 6, 2019, the curatorial advisors of the transmediale 2020 exhibition, ‘The Eternal
Network’, gathered at the festival’s offices in Berlin for a conversation on the status of network
culture and theory today. Starting from the question ‘What was the network?’, the conversation
explored the multiple trajectories of networks within cybernetics, art and philosophy, also
taking the limits of networks into account. This included a reconsideration of the role of
alternative and critical networks in today’s widespread digitalization, with its data-centric
platform economy and the techno-cultural changes wrought by artificial intelligence.
