Remote Control. Scales of Mediated Intervention
www.remote-control-conference.org
(Please RSVP online, participation is
free of charge)

The two-day conference assembles scholars from different disciplines to discuss the conditions and scales of remote control in contemporary media practice. It covers three perspectives on remotely controlled interventions:

  • The practices of remote intervention as ways of operating »from a distance«, such as the transmission of commands in robotics.
  • The infrastructures of remote intervention as ways of defining the possibilities of action, such as user interfaces, databases or control terminals.
  • The politics of remote intervention as a transformation of the relation between humans and machines, such as the distribution of responsibility in remote warfare. Read the full concept at: www.remote-control-conference.org/about
