Technological advancements, networks, and the increase in complexity of media and technologies have now reached a level that begs comparison: Natural evolution. New technologies are emerging from older ones, computer chips are designing the computer chips of the next generation, neuroscience, bioinformatics and genetic engineering are tearing down the boundaries between technology and nature. The relationships between man, machine and code are also being redefined. Questions of control over technology have taken their place alongside the classic question of political power. On the special occasion of its 10th edition, the Cologne Futures will take place in Strasbourg, France, in cooperation with ARTE, the European Cultural Foundation, the Biennale Européenne de la Créativité, and WDR. Entitled “The New Political Economy of Information”, the conference will investigate the role of information and media power in 21st-century geopolitics.

Who do we meet? Who do we not meet? And why? Which ‘European dreams’ about public space are clashing?
