MUTEK_IMG 5: "Team Human" – Douglas Rushkoff

MUTEK IMG 5 Douglas Rushkoff

Keynote by Douglas Rushkoff (US)
Tuesday, August 20, 2019 — Les Studios des 7 Doigts

There’s an anti-human agenda embedded in our markets and technologies, which has turned them from means of human connection into ones of isolation and repression. Our corporations and the culture they create glorify individualism at the expense of cooperation, threatening the sustainability not just of our economy but our species. In his new manifesto, Douglas Rushkoff reveals this agenda at work and invites us to remake society toward human ends rather than the end of humans.

There’s still time to think before we hit the switch and automate ourselves out of existence. We must reconnect with our essentially social nature, assert a place for humans in the emerging landscape, and forge solidarity with the others who understand that being human is team sport. Team Human is a rallying cry for humanity’s best future.
