Claudia Tazreiter:
New borders of migration and displacement. Local and global connection and collaboration of marginalized life

In this lecture, Claudia Tazreiter focuses on phenomena of displacement through human and more-than-human experiences. Drawing on concepts and critiques of racist capitalism, necropolitics and hauntology, Tazreiter considers the possibilities of alternative futures.

Joshua Simon:
We Are All Manchurian Candidates

In his lecture, Simon will explore the relationships between device-body-locality, in which simulation represents a new form of governance. In this reality, we bring with us the surveillance apparatus that governs us and the boundary that controls us.
