Technology and thinking - lectures on media philosophy with Palo Fabuš

The A4 has been bringing the lectures about the philosophy of the media as a part of the program Technology and thinking since the January 2018. The presenter and the brains behind it is Palo Fabuš, the editor-in-chief of the magazine Umělec (The Artists), who deals with sociology and new media and the various ways they connect in his work of many fields and interests.
 
The lectures of Technology and thinking program by Palo Fabuš are one of those critical platforms that in depth analyze the things and issues we touch mindlessly every day. The A4 is not only bringing culture and art program dramaturgy to its visitors but also introduces educational formats that challenge and examine the current social and political situation and its issues. The visitors had a chance to have a close-up look on the complex and many times contradictory and fascinating phenomena of the age of now and the gadgets, developments and problems they bring. We come in contact with them so often without realizing how deeply they influence and form our life - even when offline. 
Palo Fabus’s field of expertise is the intertwining relation between informatics, sociology and media theory and the effect they all have on our lives and the world we live in. He studied informatics and media theory in Brno and sociology in Prague, regularly lectured at the MSS MU in Brno, worked as a writer for Literární noviny. He completed an internship at the Ruhr Universität in Bochume where he studied the contemporary media theory and later continued to co-organize the festival of new media culture in Brno called ZOOM. Since 2009 he’s been working for the magazine Umělec and became its editor-in-chief in 2011. His work was published in magazines like Flash Art, A2, Vlna, Furtherfield and others. He lives and works in Nová Perla (Vrané nad Vltavou, Czech Republic). 
In January our visitors already had a chance to think over the issues of democratizing reality in the context of fiction and reality of the contemporary life.  The set of lectures was started off by the ontological questions regarding the role of technology in our society. Is reality something that is being explored or is it being made by man in a corporation with the technology and nature? In February Fabuš opened the topic of mediatization - the multiplication and extension of media and its function in the nowadays world - keeping in mind the parallels between media then and now. In March the Technology and thinking series examined the thinking itself and examined the tendencies of considering the usual and customary things the most important in the context of new media. 
The series Technology and thinking will continue in April with the lecture about The birth of the computer from the spirit of mathematics, where Fabuš will analyze the significance of computers both as the technological inventions and as the aspect that changed the human ways of thinking forever.  If the computer is born out of the crisis of reason of the 20th century, where the thinking can’t be combined with the thought itself, we are made to accept the fact that thinking is no longer going to be only a human issue or possibility. 
Palo Fabuš will be presenting the topics of the series Technology and thinking that literally touch us all even when our computers and smartphones are turned off and locked up in a safe with a lost key. In his compelling lectures you are invited to discover how our world is set up in the context of new media, media, online reality, digital information sharing a digitizing the everyday and the zeroes and ones that we touch every day.
