Keynote: Connectives, Collectives and their Secret, Zurich, May 8 2014.

„’Mr. Kittler’, [Luhmann] said then, ‘this is how it has been since Babylon. A messenger rides through the gate. Some people (like you) ask, which horse he is riding; others (like me) ask, which message he brings.’” It is impossible to summarize the difference between connectives and collectives any shorter than this anecdote does. Connectives are objects of investigation, created by media scholars, that refer to a material, pre--‐meaningful, infrastructural level. Collectives are objects of investigation, created by sociologists, which refer to a symbolic, meaningful and discursive level. Both have their systematic blind spots, and their historic grounds in the context of a modern age in crisis. What are the consequences, when digital technologies increasingly turn into a new arcanum? And what are the effects on the theory of participation, when the connectives become multitudinous and the collectives become  uncontrollable?
