Christian will give a brief overview of Ars Industrialis, the French association of researchers, practitioners and interested parties dedicated to promoting a properly public critical debate about digital media and contemporary culture politics and society. Christian is involved in several Ars Industrialis projects including a programme to involve the creative industries in the redevelopment of the city of Nantes.
Christian Fauré is a French ICT designer and cultural theorist. He is a founding member of Ars Industrialis (www.arsindustrialis.org), the cultural activist association formed by Bernard Stiegler in 2005 to promote an intervention in the development of contemporary digital technoculture. Through his public speaking, writing and involvement in various projects, Christian has worked towards the association's goals of fostering a critical and creative reformulation of the potentials of digital media and communications.
This talk is presented by Digital Cultures Research Centre (DCRC).
