Schwärme - Kollektive ohne Zentrum : eine Wissensgeschichte zwischen Leben und Information by Eva Horn( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schwärme haben Konjunktur. Ihr Versprechen liegt in einer Organisation, die eine radikale Alternative zu den traditionellen Formen des Politischen, des Denkens und Rechnens darstellt. Sie sind Modelle alternativer Steuerungslogiken. Als Kollektive ohne Zentrum sind sie freier, kreativer und effizienter - aber auch bedrohlich und unkontrollierbar.Der Band liefert Elemente einer Wissensgeschichte des Schwarms - von der Ameisenforschung bis zur Computersimulation. Die Beiträge fragen nach der Epistemologie des Schwarms zwischen Leben und digitaler Technik und zeichnen die Geschichte der Übertragungen zwischen Tier-Kollektiven und Menschen-Gemeinschaften

The Anthropocene : key issues for the humanities by Eva Horn( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2020 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Anthropocene is a concept which challenges the foundations of humanities scholarship as it is traditionally understood. It calls not only for closer engagement with the natural sciences but also for a synthetic approach bringing together insights from the various subdisciplines in the humanities and social sciences which have addressed themselves to ecological questions in the past. This book is an introduction to, and structured survey of, the attempts that have been made to take the measure of the Anthropocene, and explores some of the paradigmatic problems which it raises. The difficulties of an introduction to the Anthropocene lie not only in the disciplinary breadth of the subject, but also in the rapid pace at which the surrounding debates have been, and still are, unfolding. This introduction proposes a conceptual map which, however provisionally, charts these ongoing discussions across a variety of scientific and humanistic disciplines. This book will be essential reading for students and researchers in the environmental humanities, particularly in literary and cultural studies, history, philosophy, and environmental studies

Die Fiktion von der jüdischen Weltverschwörung : zu Text und Kontext der "Protokolle der Weisen von Zion" by Eva Horn( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unter dem Titel "Protokolle der Weisen von Zion" ist eine Schrift bekannt, die die Juden bezichtigt, auf konspirativ-subversive Weise nach der Weltherrschaft zu streben. Entstanden um 1900, dürften die "Protokolle" das noch immer am weitesten verbreitete Dokument des modernen Antisemitismus sein. Bis heute sind die genauen Umstände ihrer Entstehung ungeklärt. Vor allem die Fragen, wer an der Abfassung beteiligt war und welche Absichten dabei verfolgt wurden, sind noch immer offen - und Gegenstand weitreichender, oft phantastischer Spekulationen. Aktuell erzählt Umberto Eco in seinem Roman "Der Friedhof in Prag" eine fiktive Version der Fälschungsgeschichte. Die hier versammelten Essays präsentieren neue Erkenntnisse zur Herkunft und Verbreitung der "Protokolle".

The Future as Catastrophe : Imagining Disaster in the Modern Age by Eva Horn( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do we have the constant feeling that disaster is looming? Beyond the images of atomic apocalypse that have haunted us for decades, we are dazzled now by an array of possible catastrophe scenarios: climate change, financial crises, environmental disasters, technological meltdowns-perennial subjects of literature, film, popular culture, and political debate. Is this preoccupation with catastrophe questionable alarmism or complacent passivity? Or are there certain truths that can be revealed only in apocalypse?In The Future as Catastrophe, Eva Horn offers a novel critique of the modern fascination with disaster, which she treats as a symptom of our relationship to the future. Analyzing the catastrophic imaginary from its cultural and historical roots in Romanticism and the figure of the Last Man, through the narratives of climatic cataclysm and the Cold War's apocalyptic sublime, to the contemporary popularity of disaster fiction and end-of-the-world blockbusters, Horn argues that apocalypse always haunts the modern idea of a future that can be anticipated and planned. Considering works by Lord Byron, J. G. Ballard, and Cormac McCarthy and films such as 12 Monkeys and Minority Report alongside scientific scenarios and political metaphors, she analyzes catastrophic thought experiments and the question of survival, the choices legitimized by imagined states of exception, and the contradictions inherent in preventative measures taken in the name of technical safety or political security. What makes today's obsession different from previous epochs' is the sense of a "catastrophe without event," a stealthily creeping process of disintegration. Ultimately, Horn argues, imagined catastrophes offer us intellectual tools that can render a future shadowed with apocalyptic possibilities affectively, epistemologically, and politically accessible
Der Fall der Sterne by Iris Ellers( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in German and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exhibition brings together two pictorially powerful visions of the end of time: Julian Rosefeldt?s work 'In the Land of Drought' and Albrecht Dürer?s illustrations for the Book of Revelation. In his video installation, Julian Rosefeldt (born 1965) depicts a post-apocalyptic imaginary future in which man is inescapably confronted with the consequences of the overexploitation of the Earth?s resources. More than five-hundred years before Rosefeldt created his work, Albrecht Dürer (1471?1528) illustrated the Bible?s foretelling of the end of the world with fifteen woodcuts. First published in 1498, the fanciful yet fear-inducing series responded to the mood of gloom and doom that prevailed as the turn of the century approached. Roughly contemporaneous with Dürer?s series is a Dutch printed edition of the eschatological proclamations of the theologian Jean Gerson (1363?1429). Provided with fifteen sequences of naive, vivid illustrations, this little book is a practical demonstration of the way in which people were to envision the portents of the end of the world and the Last Judgment.0As different as the works by Rosefeldt, Dürer, and Gerson may seem, they do have one thing in common: the vision of an end of the world that can be understood not as the final end but rather as the beginning of something new, of a world after the world. The exhibition invites visitors to enter this field of tension between creation, destruction, and new beginning and to envision the imaginable worlds of different futures.00Exhibition: Draiflessen Collection, Mettingen, Germany (18.03.-26.08.2018)
