Out of the box – into the Green and the Blue: A Plea for a Post-humanist Information Society (2021)


“Around 1500, a century on the verge of a new age – comparable in part to ours, as the age of the multiplication of knowledge was about to arise and the new printing technique changed the world of texts, knowledge and images – the collapse of Aristotle’s knowledge hierarchies was prominently depicted in Hans-Baldung Grien’s woodcut, “Phyllis riding Aristotle”. It was by no means a singular event, but “re-produced” a thousand times in a thousand styles. It was the evidence that the “boxes” of dominion had been turned upside down.” (Hagengruber 2021, 122)
