The world will unit and interact together, he believes, if only every body is connected to the world wide web. Not because of technological necessity, anyway. He argued, that the technological possibilities of new media by no means would determine the emergence of new forms of society and culture. Mass-media, Baudrillard sums upmass-media are excluding any genuine interchange of people, who would really answer to each other S.
The media are new, the utopian dreams old. This faith of Breecht media theory in revolutionary social consequences of technical opportunities is an heritage of their ancestors, first of all a legacy of Brecht and Benjamin. All we need, are advanced modern technologies. Symptom and cause of this change was the conversion of the kmomunikationsapparat of communication —— forced by media—technologies —— from passive consumption to active participation.
Benjamin, Brecht, and Enzensberger as well were focusing their attention on the technical opportunities of such media as the radio, the film or, later on, the television to link a multitude of people in non hierarchic, interactive networks. Now, in order to become positive kommunikatlonsapparat that is, to find out about the positive side of radio broadcasts —— here is a suggestion for changing the function of the radio: Such a symmetrization, he continues, is revolutionary and directly implemented in technology itself: Imagine Lonelygirl15 with Verfremdungseffekt.
Norbert Bolz, for instance, predicts that the asymmetry and distance between producer and recipients will be electronically liquidated in the hyper—medium of the hyper—text: Interaction via media is impossible — true interaction is only possible if the persons are present, able to answer to each other without directing scripts or schemes. The technical apparatus of film establishes a symmetry between the perceptions of the audience and those of the producers.
Brecut course, in the recent past it was the internet which helps to rise new hopes which all contain the old wish, that a medium might be de which could surmount the hierarchic and asymmetric forms of communication and substitute them with symmetric and lateral forms of interaction.
This, according to Brecht, rules out “art” in the conventional sense, because art in a capitalist society implies the unique creation of an individual author usually estranged from his audience. Flusser is taking massive consequences out of his analysis of the technical infrastructure of the internet. At first inBrecht merely smiled at the discovery of the radio. Follow the project on FacebookTwitterInstagram and Tumblr. Decisions, Flusser believes, would than be made within the interacting network, which comes to solutions as a neuronal system or like parallel processing networks.
Consequently, Brecht says art must oppose isolation and develop collective forms. Please cite me as Rettberg, Jill Walker — Walker is a middle name and not part of my last name. On no account do I insist on denouncing the capacities of media theory. The differentiation of communication into these functional roles, he says, is abolished for two reasons. Art as it has been known since the end of the eigthteenth century becomes obsolete by an new technical medium.
Bertold Brecht – Der Rundfunk als Kommunikationsapparat by Tomas Barton on Prezi
Proudly powered by WordPress. One reason for this continuity seems to be the continuation of the desire to equippe analysis with prognostic powers.
With rundfnk aid of this concept, Brecht wishes to abolish the gap between one single sender and numerous receivers. The contrary is true, he iommunikationsapparat Here is my CV. While are most radios crippled so they can only receive and not also send? Recent media theory repeats these utopian hopes with surprising redundancy. A sensational affair, but what for?
Brecht on Radio
InBrecht notes: I would like to plead, however, for giving up this hierarchical relationship among media technology, social system, semantics, and sensuousness, and also giving up the primacy of technology. Sound and image, voice and text exist only as a surface effect, also well—known to consumers under the pleasant name of the interface.
Because, on the level of the circuits of radio-technology, every microphone could function rundfujk a loudspeaker and vice versa every loudspeaker could be used as a micro, the common fascist or capitalistic practice of komkunikationsapparat and one-to-many communication should be replaced by interaction of all participating users.
That is to say, it would be if it knew how to receive as well as to transmit, how to let the listener speak as well as hear, how to bring him into a relationship instead of isolating him.
On bercht principle the radio should step out of the supply business and organize its listeners as suppliers. And to quote him once again: Already inBolz wrote: Because the social software is recognized dundfunk a effect of economic and technological hardware, Marx and Engels knew only too well what was going to happen on the socio-cultural level if they detected certain changes at the level of hardware.
A person wishing to look into things closely will be unable to avoid technology, kommunikationsappzrat most obvious matter.
