Stiegler on the Need to Develop "Cooperatives of Disciplines"

Bernard Stiegler and Colette Tron expand on the ideas of the development of an art of hypercontrol, where artists could develop systems of 'retro-action' on the whole earth system to avoid the disasters of the anthropocene. The art of hypercontrol is a political question, which reflects on the technological condition and converts concern into action. Steigler expands on Deleuze's ideas of converting the wound into a remedy. All technologies are inherently both solutions and causes of problems. Stiegler and Tron discuss their the idea of developing 'coops of disciplines" to invent new instruments of cooperation for an economy of negentropie. Steigler refers to his MOOC system .

Frank Malina and the Cultural Appropriation of Science and Technology

Art Historian Fabrice Lapelletrie and Artist and Curator Ewen Chardronnet discuss Frank Malina's art philosophy and how artists must appropriate the scientific landscapes and technologies of their time to create truly contemporary art forms. Chardronnet discusses his interest in artistic experimentation in the context of space exploration. He details his mounting of an exhibition around the work of Theremin and other engineers in Russia who created the first sound and image synthesisers as exemple of this movement before the war, and how the work of Frank Malina as an artist and engineers ties to this tradition. They discuss the artists who have filed patents as part of a long art and technology tradition.
