On the Invisibility of Modern Power

Adam Curtis in conversation with Christoph Hochhäusler and Nicolas Wackerbarth

Part of the "Adam Curtis Weekend"

The idea that visibility creates the possibility for control is an essential component of the democratic idea. Publicness is meant to force those in power to produce a narrative that can then be disputed. But in a time of systemic constraints with “no alternatives,” this narrative has started to sputter. Adam Curtis speaks about the effects that the age of logarithms has had on how stories are told.      

After the talk at 9:30pm there will be a screening of Adam Curtis' latest film "Bitter Lake".
