Beyond Solutionism in a Post-COVID-19 World
The current crisis, with governments begging tech companies for help, has highlighted the immense appeal of the ideology of technological solutionism. But what is its politics? And how does it relate to the other dominant ideology of the day, neoliberalism? This talk will explore the political effects of technological solutionism, survey its place in today’s global capitalism as well as suggest what a post-solutionist politics might look like.
Special guests: Sandra Bašić Hrvatin, Valerija Korošec, Nejc Slukan
