ERNST, Wolfgang
The Contemporary Condition. The Delayed Present Media-Induced Tempor(e)alities & Techno-traumatic Irritations of “the Contemporary”

In the media theatre of contemporary culture, a drama unfolds: While the human sense of “the present” is challenged by the immediacy of analog signal transmission and the delays of digital data processing, a different (non-)sense of time unfolds within technologies themselves. At that moment, human-related phenomenological analysis clashes with the media-archaeological close reading of the technological event, in an impossible effort to let the temporeal articulate itself. [publisher’s note]
