MAM Art Course 09
No. 10 "The New Potential of Democracy"

Japanese-English simultaneous translation available

Since the second half of the 20th century, contemporary thought has gradually lost the power it once had to create strong, positive conceptions of future society. Nevertheless, it is still necessary for us to think about our future. In this lecture, Azuma attempts a theoretical overview of society to determine how our new information-enabled environment could alter our concepts of the public and democracy. He will also consider how his overview could be linked back to existing models of social thought and cultural criticism.
