Theorie des Filterns. Zur Programmatik eines Experimentalsystems

Cubasch, Alwin J.; Engelmann, Vanessa; Kassung, Christian

Filters are at the very center of many current processes of our transformational age. But what common concepts underlie this multitude of filtering phenomena? We understand filtering as a scalable environing technique that differentiates and maintains symbolic and material environments alike. Because of its scalability, human as well as non-human actors can employ filtering techniques to engage their environs. Filtering is an activity that matters in a twofold way: It is a material process, but it is also a process of fundamental importance to its users, thus rendering it always a symbolic activity. Starting from this basic concept, we examine different properties of filtering techniques and propose a research program that examines cultural, molecular, and digital filtering techniques.
