If, as Émile Durkheim once stated, society is memory, changes in the dominant technologies of memory necessarily impact how we conceptualize sociality as such. In this two-day conference we take a media archeological approach to the question of memory and discuss the relation between technology and social ontology.
How do technologies change the way we remember? In a double lecture organized by the Seminar of Aesthetics and The Archive in Motion, Pasi Väliaho and Wolfgang Ernst address how memory is set in motion, from early cinema to contemporary memory culture.
Open seminar with Matthew Fuller (Goldsmith's College) and Tara McPherson (University of Southern California).
