About this product
- DescriptionModernity has had so many meanings and tries to combine so many contradictory sets of attitudes and values that it has become impossible to use it to define the future. It has ended up crashing like an overloaded computer. Hence the idea is that modernity might need a sort of reset. Not a clean break, t a tabula rasa, t ather icoclastic gesture, but rather a restart of the complicated programs that have been accumulated, over the course of history, in what is often called the modernist project. This operation has become all the more urgent w that the ecological mutation is forcing us to reorient ourselves toward an experience of the material world for which we don't seem to have good recording devices. Reset Modernity! is organized around six procedures that might induce the readers to reset some of those instruments. Once this reset has been completed, readers might be better prepared for a series of new encounters with other cultures. After having been thrown into the modernist maelstrom, those cultures have difficulties that are just as grave as ours in orienting themselves within the tion of modernity. It is t impossible that the course of those encounters might be altered after modernizers have reset their own way of recording their experience of the world. At the intersection of art, philosophy, and anthropology, Reset Modernity! has assembled close to sixty authors, most of whom have participated, in one way or ather, in the Inquiry into Modes of Existence initiated by Bru Latour. Together they try to see whether such a reset and such encounters have any practicality. Much like the two exhibitions Icoclash and Making Things Public, this book documents and completes what could be called a thought exhibition: Reset Modernity! held at ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe from April to August 2016. Like the two others, this book, generously illustrated, includes contributions, excerpts, and works from many authors and artists.
