Bernard Stiegler - culture as the heart of a new economical and industrial development
First part of the exclusive 2010LAB.tv column
In the first part of the exclusive 2010LAB.tv column, philosopher Bernard Stiegler talks about new chances and ways of culture: leaving the consumerism of cultural industry, finding new ways of contribution.
Stiegler describes the development from art lover to consumer and criticises Howkins’ idea of „creative clusters“, considering them as a voluntary segregation, a “golden ghetto”.
Culture is more than the usual talents such as painters, film makers, or writers – it’s also the masons and farmers who are part of it. All the more important if the digital change should be the way out from consumerism towards a contributive society.
Still, the question remains to be answered whether people in a digital culture will contribute more to current discussions and abandon their passive consumer attitude.
In his column for 2010LAB.tv, the director of the „Institute for Research and Innovation“ (IRI) at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Bernard Stiegler, talks about the future role of culture politics in the exciting field of societal, political, and economical changes, thus giving essential impulses for a discussion.
