Online conference: Other(ing) Sensing. Practices, Politics and Ethics of Sensitive Media

Conference by the research group "SENSING: The Knowledge of Sensitive Media"

Sensing, in its more-than-human, technological, as well as human dimension, is often understood as an element of transmission or connection. It encompasses practices of (ostensibly) making the imperceptible perceivable, of turning formerly opaque processes into data or of 'accessing' other subjectivities. But as much as sensitive media are an attempt to bridge difference, they are also responsible for the constitution of otherness. Their intention to connect can also turn into a violent erasure of difference. Our 2021 conference aims to look at the practices, politics and ethics of sensing in relation to alterity. How do entities sense one another? What in- and exclusions are constituted through sensitive media? In which ways can sensing become a violent act of appropriation? But also, what is the subversive opening of 'other' sensing practices?
