Our daily lives, our culture and our politics are now shaped by the digital condition as large numbers of people involve themselves in contentious negotiations of meaning in ever more dimensions of life, from the trivial to the profound. They are making use of the capacities of complex communication infrastructures, currently dominated by social mass media such as Twitter and Facebook, on which they have come to depend. Amidst a confusing plurality, Felix Stalder argues that are three key constituents of this condition: the use of existing cultural materials for one's own production, the way in which new meaning is established as a collective endeavour, and the underlying role of algorithms and automated decision-making processes that reduce and give shape to massive volumes of data. These three characteristics define what Stalder calls 'the digital condition'. Stalder also examines the profound political implications of this new culture. We stand at a crossroads between post-democracy and the commons, a concentration of power among the few or a genuine widening of participation, with the digital condition offering the potential for starkly different outcomes. This ambitious and wide-ranging theory of our contemporary digital condition will be of great interest to students and scholars in media and communications, cultural studies, and social, political and cultural theory, as well as to a wider readership interested in the ways in which culture and politics are changing today.

When a new smartphone comes on the market, queues start forming in the early hours outside the palatial stores. This shows that what matters today is not only the use value of a commodity (that one can make phone calls or surf the Internet with such a device), but also what Gernot Bohme calls its "staging value". The stage-setting of products and lifestyles is a central feature of aesthetic capitalism, the manifestations of which Bohme tracks down here. In concerning himself with the ideology of growth, with the soundscape in shopping malls and the connection between performance ideology and consumption, he makes an important contribution to a reconstruction and extension of the theory of the culture industry to the sphere of economic life.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Kunst - Computerkunst, Medienkunst, Note: 1,0, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien (Institut für Kulturmanagement), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dieser Essay beschäftigt sich mit der grundlegenden Frage, was überhaupt digitale Kunst ist. Peter Kogler nutzt die modernen Technologien für sein Werk und setzt sich mit der Mediatisierung der Kunst und Gesellschaft auseinander. Im weiteren Verlauf der Arbeit ist ein Interview mit ihm zu finden. Wir leben in einer digitalen Gesellschaft, unser Denken und Handeln wird ständig durch neue Technologien und daraus resultierende Entwicklungen beeinflusst. Wir befinden uns auf dem Weg zu einer total vernetzten und vorausberechenbaren Gesellschaft. Dabei generieren wir Daten, deren Analyse bereits unseren morgigen Aufenthaltsort verrät. Davon profitieren selbstverständlich Handelsketten, Banken und Polizei. Wir sind transparent, vorhersehbar und planbar geworden. Aufgrund von Big Data kann man unsere Gewohnheiten, Lebensstil und Charakter erfassen. Gibt es noch Platz für Unvorhersehbares, Kreatives? Werden wir den Zufall aus unserem Leben verbannen müssen. Die großen Mengen an Informationen, das permanente Online Dasein verdrängt Neugier. Wir bekommen bereits vorgefertigte Produkte, die unsere Entscheidungskraft mindern. Natürlich spiegelt sich diese Thematik in der zeitgenössischen Kunst und Kultur wider. Mehrere Künstler wurden dazu befragt. Die Schwierigkeiten begannen, nach der Zusammenstellung der Künstler, die eine Definition von digitaler Kunst verlangten. Sind digitale Künstler jene, die ihre Arbeiten übers Internet und die sozialen Medien verbreiten oder sind es solche, die sie am Computer kreieren und ausführen. Mittlerweile arbeiten bereits sehr viele Künstler mit Computern und es stellt sich daher die Frage, sind sie alle „Digital Artists“ oder sogar „Data Artists“? Sowohl in der Wissenschaft als auch der Wirtschaft sind Datenanalyse und Visualisierung unabdingbar geworden. Doch in den kreativen Händen einer neuen Generation von Künstlern, kann aus großen Datenmengen noch viel mehr werden als Charts, Grafiken und sachliche Diagramme. Aus ihnen kann Kunst werden. Kunst, die auf zuvor unbekannte Art und Weise auf der Realität basiert und somit nicht nur ein Abbild unserer Welt darstellt, sondern zudem auf seine ganz eigene Art Geschichten erzählen kann.

Dieses Buch verbindet Medien- und Musikwissenschaften. Es ist ein Diskurs ber Ver„nderungen in der Musik, aufgezeigt anhand verschiedener Medienrevolutionen. In die Analyse flieáen aber nicht nur technische, sondern auch institutionelle und kulturelle Faktoren mit ein. In einem medientheoretischen Rahmen beschreibt der Autor wie die Erfindung der Schrift, des Buchdruckes und elektrischer Speichermedien die Musiklandschaft nachhaltig beeinflusst haben. So wurden komplexe Musikstcke erst mit der Erfindung der Schrift m”glich, die es erlaubte Musik in Form von Symbolen auf Papier zu ?speichern?. Der Buchdruck sorgte fr eine massenhafte und kommerzielle Verbreitung der Notation. Dies fhrte zu einer Aufwertung des Komponisten und schr„nkte gleichzeitig den Bereich des Interpreten ein. Der Interpret war nun nicht mehr als ein Handarbeiter. Ein Gefangener der Notation, die ihn zwang das zu spielen, was der Autor des Musikstckes komponiert hat. Noch immer war Musik aber untrennbar mit der Live-Auffhrung verbunden. Dies „nderte sich mit der Erfindung analoger Speichermedien, wie dem Phonograph oder dem Grammophon. Musik wurde von der traditionellen Live-Auffhrung getrennt und konnte sich ber lokale Grenzen hinaus ausbreiten. Als Folge davon vermischten sich musikalische Einflsse und es entstanden neue Genres. Die (vorerst) letzte Medienrevolution stellt das digitale Zeitalter dar. Der Computer als Musikinstrument ver„ndert den Umgang mit Musik und er”ffnet v”llig neue Kompositionsm”glichkeiten. So konnten bis dahin neue und ungeh”rte Sounds produziert werden, was sich auch auf die Musikpraxis auswirkt: Viele dieser Sounds k”nnen n„mlich gar nicht live gespielt werden. Die Wirtschaftlichkeit der Digitaltechnik tr„gt ebenfalls zu ihrem Siegeszug bei, denn digitale Instrumente sind in der Regel wesentlich billiger. Ironischerweise ist es aber auch die Digitalit„t, die Plattenfirmen und Labels an den Rand des finanziellen Ruins treibt, denn nie zuvor war das Kopieren und Verbreiten von Musik so einfach. Das bringt uns dazu geltende Copyrights zu berdenken.

You think you have a winning strategy. But do you? Executives are bombarded with bestselling ideas and best practices for achieving competitive advantage, but many of these ideas and practices contradict each other. Should you aim to be big or fast? Should you create a blue ocean, be adaptive, play to win—or forget about a sustainable competitive advantage altogether? In a business environment that is changing faster and becoming more uncertain and complex almost by the day, it’s never been more important—or more difficult—to choose the right approach to strategy. In this book, The Boston Consulting Group’s Martin Reeves, Knut Haanæs, and Janmejaya Sinha offer a proven method to determine the strategy approach that is best for your company. They start by helping you assess your business environment—how unpredictable it is, how much power you have to change it, and how harsh it is—a critical component of getting strategy right. They show how existing strategy approaches sort into five categories—Be Big, Be Fast, Be First, Be the Orchestrator, or simply Be Viable—depending on the extent of predictability, malleability, and harshness. In-depth explanations of each of these approaches will provide critical insight to help you match your approach to strategy to your environment, determine when and how to execute each one, and avoid a potentially fatal mismatch. Addressing your most pressing strategic challenges, you’ll be able to answer questions such as: • What replaces planning when the annual cycle is obsolete? • When can we—and when should we—shape the game to our advantage? • How do we simultaneously implement different strategic approaches for different business units? • How do we manage the inherent contradictions in formulating and executing different strategies across multiple businesses and geographies? Until now, no book brings it all together and offers a practical tool for understanding which strategic approach to apply. Get started today.

"Dazzlingly original." -- Daily Mail "Gripping, touching and funny." -- TLS The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Culture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender. Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it. It was the fate of Horza, the Changer, and his motley crew of unpredictable mercenaries, human and machine, actually to find it, and with it their own destruction.

Psychology is the dogma of our age; psychotherapy is our means of self-understanding; and "repressed memory" is now a universally familiar form of trauma. Jeffrey Prager, who is both a sociologist and a psychoanalyst, explores the degree to which we manifest the cliches of our culture in our most private recollections. At the core of "Presenting the Past" is the dramatic and troubling case of a woman who during the course of her analysis began to recall scenes of her own childhood sexual abuse. Later the patient came to believe that the trauma she remembered as a physical violation might have been an emotional violation and that she had composed a memory out of present and past relationships. But what was accurate and true? And what evidence could be persuasive and valuable? Could the analyst trust either her convictions or his own? Using this case and others, Prager explores the nature of memory and its relation to the interpersonal, therapeutic, and cultural worlds in which remembering occurs. Synthesizing research from social science, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and cognitive psychology, Prager uses clinical examples to argue more generally that our memories are never simple records of events, but constantly evolving constructions, affected by contemporary culture as well as by our own private lives. He demonstrates the need that sociology has for the insights of psychoanalysis, and the need that psychoanalysis has for the insights of sociology.
Oral Tradition as History

Jan Vansina’s 1961 book, Oral Tradition, was hailed internationally as a pioneering work in the field of ethno-history. Originally published in French, it was translated into English, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, and Hungarian. Reviewers were unanimous in their praise of Vansina’s success in subjecting oral traditions to intense functional analysis. Now, Vansina—with the benefit of two decades of additional thought and research—has revised his original work substantially, completely rewriting some sections and adding much new material. The result is an essentially new work, indispensable to all students and scholars of history, anthropology, folklore, and ethno-history who are concerned with the transmission and potential uses of oral material. “Those embarking on the challenging adventure of historical fieldwork with an oral community will find the book a valuable companion, filled with good practical advice. Those who already have collected bodies of oral material, or who strive to interpret and analyze that collected by others, will be forced to subject their own methodological approaches to a critical reexamination in the light of Vansina’s thoughtful and provocative insights. . . . For the second time in a quarter of a century, we are profoundly in the debt of Jan Vansina.”—Research in African Literatures “Oral Traditions as History is an essential addition to the basic literature of African history.”—American Historical Review
