New Extractivism

Vladan Joler

4 November 2022
19:15 — 20:30


Location: Het Huis Main Stage

At this very moment in the 21st century, we are witnessing a new form of extractivism that reaches into the furthest corners of the biosphere and the deepest layers of human cognitive and affective being. To tackle the truly planetary scale of extractivism, it is necessary to move beyond a simplistic analysis of the relationship between individual human beings, their data and the actions of tech companies. New Extractivism by Vladan Joler is a cartographic project that can be understood as a titanic effort to outline these interconnections and to make sense of our contemporary reality. The project is an assemblage of concepts and allegories, drawn from a variety of resources: statistical research and data mining, ancient and contemporary philosophy, media theory and fiction, sociology and economics. Together, all these allegories and concepts create a blueprint for a machine-like superstructure, or super allegory’. What we eventually get here is a  fractal-like allegorical structure: an allegory within an allegory within an allegory.
