As beginning of this years ARS Electronica Festival symposia stands Richard Sennet:
The Linz Lectures series sponsored by the city’s Volkshochschule adult continuing education facility and the province’s Chamber of Labor is designed as a forum for the critical discussion of important current issues. This year, American sociologist Richard Sennett has been invited to Linz to discuss work (the reality of work; work as a commodity) amidst capitalism’s time of crisis. Sennett’s bestsellers—for example, “The Corrosion of Character” and “The Culture of the New Capitalism”—elaborate on the effects of flexwork on labor and life in general. Sennett’s latest book, “The Craftsman,” investigates a basic human impulse: the desire to do a job well for its own sake.
