"I am no longer able to 'reflect' anything, I can only push hypotheses to their limits, snatch them from the zone where they can be critically related to them, and let them get to the point There is no way back, and I let the theory enter the hyperspace of the simulation - it loses all objective validity in it, but perhaps gains in cohesion, it is like the system that surrounds us". (Baudrillard 1990)
n his lecture, the speaker Jürgen Voigt will investigate the "radical thinking" of the French theorist and will discuss contemporary music. In an open lecture we will later have discussions with artists of our Festival.
