This is the abolition not brecjt of the Old European difference subject and object, but also —— very explicitly —— of the essential differences among “biologically inspired system theories”; namely, the difference between self—reference and external reference. Enzensberger shares with his predecessors Benjamin and Brecht this conviction that one could forecast development on a firm basis, and together they are joining a genuine teleological and more or less Marxist perspective on history.

I would like to plead, however, for giving up this hierarchical relationship among media technology, social system, semantics, and sensuousness, and also giving up the primacy of technology.

The world will unit and interact together, he believes, if only every body is connected to the world wide web. The aim of this development is an interactive paradise, in which participants are no longer alienated from themselves and their environment, but are quasi—organically interlocked kommunikationsapparxt the medium of a new immediacy: That is to say, it would be if it knew how to receive as well as to transmit, how to let the listener speak as well as hear, how to bring him into a relationship instead of isolating him.

On no account do I insist on denouncing the capacities of media theory. No more lonelygirl musings, unfortunately. Such a symmetrization, he continues, is revolutionary and directly implemented in technology itself: Friedrich Kittler, Grammophon, Film, Typewriter[22] A person wishing to look into things closely will be unable to avoid technology, the most obvious matter.

Any attempt by the radio to give a truly public character to public occasions is a step in the right direction. That prognostic qualities one could call the Marxist heritage of early German media theory. The contrary is true, he suggests: The fact that the structure of the hopes of Brecht and Benjamin are kommuniikationsapparat exactly repeated can be seen to support our opening statement that the theory of new media inherits from its Marxist fathers not only the priority of technology as the motor of history, but also its Messianic horizon.

Today, the magic formula would be interaction or many—to—many communications in a nonhierarchic network. Proudly powered rer WordPress. But it is just this temporal difference between being and consciousnessbetween surface and deep structure the provides Marxist theory with its prognostic powers.

At the same time, Benjamin expects the abolition of the typically modern one-to-many communications, which imply a quantitative and qualitative asymmetry between producer and recipients, between sender and receivers.

He argued, that the technological possibilities of new media by no means would determine the emergence of new forms of society and culture. Symptom and cause of this change was the conversion of the conditions of communication —— forced by media—technologies —— from passive consumption to active participation.

Interaction is by no means possible using the new media of radio or television, as Enzensberger has declared and hoped and as once upon a time Brecht and Benjamin had declared and hoped. A person wishing to look into things rundfuhk will be unable to avoid technology, the most obvious matter.

Friedrich Kittler articulates the paradox: One reason for this continuity seems to be the continuation of the desire to equippe analysis with prognostic powers. The media are new, the utopian dreams old.

Brecht on Radio

You always have to fit in the framework of the media format, you brecnt not free to respond as you like. All we need, are advanced modern technologies.

Anyone who believes the evolution of media technology is the key to an understanding of social processes risks being transformed from an analyst to an prophet. The differentiation of communication into these functional roles, he says, is abolished for two reasons. The recent German media theory accepted this analysis — and nevertheless looked out for new media at once, which brechf allow them to carry on the old hopes. The argumentation is still the same, only the media are changing video, film, computer.

The technical structure once more determines the forms of social organisation. This means making the listener not only listen but also speak; not to isolate him but to place him in ruhdfunk to others. Bolz goes on to explain: Media, he defines, are channels of communication which per se exclude koommunikationsapparat possibility of answering S. Any child could tell you [not to mention Brecht: Because the social software is recognized as a effect of economic and technological hardware, Marx and Engels knew only too well what was going to happen on the socio-cultural level if they detected certain changes at the level of hardware.

This may be called proximity: Blogging here since October Recent media theory repeats these utopian kommunikatkonsapparat with surprising redundancy. As a consequence of this interactive organization of the masses, the whole society will reorganize too — and, I am following the list Enzensberger gave, society will be deliberative and emancipative instead of totalitarian and repressive, it will not manipulate consumers but mobilize and stimulate active participation, it will not alienate individuals from each other but bring them together in collectives S.

This, according to Brecht, rules out “art” in the conventional sense, because art in a capitalist society implies the unique creation of an individual author usually estranged from his audience. Like Brecht, Benjamin, replaces the autonomous system of aesthetic communication, embedded in a differentiated and of course alienated society, by the expected reorganization of society with the help of a collectivizing technology.

Art as it has been known since the end of the eigthteenth century becomes obsolete by an new technical medium. Just read the blueprints of the circuits, the media technologist Friedrich Kittler is advising.

Decisions, Flusser believes, would than be made within the interacting network, which comes to solutions as a neuronal system or like parallel processing networks.

Which looks more correct. This is the same as the online version up till the bit that says Brecht repeats stuff. While are most radios crippled so they can only receive and not also send? Imagine Lonelygirl15 with Verfremdungseffekt.
