Abstract:

  • Panel: The Matter with Media

    The ear is not the pri­mary sense of ra­tio­nal­ity. Only when it comes to hid­den mat­ters, it trans­forms it­self from a ne­glegted organ to the most suited sense of knowl­edge ac­qui­si­tion. This hap­pened with med­ical aus­cul­ta­tion as early as in the 18th c. or dur­ing WWII with sonar. Lis­ten­ing could be reconfigured as a method for a crit­i­cal in­quiry about the mat­ter with media, es­pe­cially with re­gard its hid­den agen­cies.
