Events | The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism

Berlin | March 7, 2013

Like its predecessor "The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism: Part 1", which took place in Los Angeles the second part of the transatlantic conference will investigate how the conditions of Semiocapitalism and Cognitive Capitalism have transformed the conditions of labour – specifically the fact that so much contemporary labour is immaterial, affective, and cognitive – and as a result detourned the role of emancipatory politics, art/architecture and education today. Might these new conditions also have lasting material ramifications for the brain and mind?

An international array of philosophers, critical theorists, media theorists, art historians, architects, and artists will discuss the state of the mind and brain under the conditions of contemporary capitalism, in which these cognitive apparati have become the new focus of labouring.

The schedule of the conference in Berlin you will find here. Information about Part 1 you will find here.
