The lecture analyzes this new automatic apparatus of capture, whose main principle is the capture and control of reality, under the heading Environmentality. The proposed critique of Environmentality centers the description of the environmentalitarian Time-Form.
On the one hand, this Time-Form shapes an unprecedented regime of futurality that operates a huge reduction of the possible. On the other hand, it compels a radical reactualization of the problem of time in terms of environmental temporalization beyond human time consciousness and perception.
Dr. Erich Hörl is Professor for Media Culture and Media Philosophy at Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Institute of Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media, Digital Cultures Research Lab, DFG-Researchgroup “Cultures of Critique” and PI of the project Elements of a Critical Theory of Media and Participation.
