激进技术

——1968五十周年,重审现实秩序

Radical Technologies:Re-examining the contemporary order on the 50th anniversary of 1968


1968年,几十万人在世界各地走上了街头。反战把反资本主义、反帝国主义、反种族主义、反官僚主义等等诉求联结在了一起,让1968年成为了资本主义世界既存秩序中一个“断裂”的共振时刻。

与此同时,越战的画面通过卫星通讯电视机深刻地印记在誓与任何形式的专制决裂的迷惘一代心中;军备和太空竞赛推动着通俗文化对乌托邦和社会可能性的想象;一系列的街头运动催生出新型的城市空间管制技术和空间组织方式;情景主义通过艺术实践开拓着抵抗的空间向度;战争衍生出的控制论、自动化与赛博格模糊了人的定义;环境控制技术的发展和认识促成了一系列反资本主义的激进建筑团体的演进,也推动着建筑作为一种批判工具的形成和学院建筑学的转型。二十世纪的后半程,媒介与技术的突变深刻地重塑了既有的世界秩序。

然而,反抗的姿态却促进了资本主义的自我演化,使得这个庞大的生产消费系统更加具备弹性。“六八”一代在弑父的叛逆期过后重新回归旧秩序,与自己青年时期的抵抗完成了和解。五十年后,激进左翼的批判理论,被学院吸纳,成为了“作为方法的批判”,并逐渐淹没在后现代的浪潮中;五十年后,“反抗”、“解放”等激进语言和视觉形象被营销行业所收割,成为细分消费领域的广告策略,“反文化”的抵抗艺术更讽刺性地成为商品拜物教的注脚。

PILLS此次联手“澎湃新闻·思想市场”与“单读”,推出“激进技术”特刊,并公开征集相关主题文章。在五十年后的今天,我们邀请您一起重新审视近代资本主义“断裂”时期的技术变革与其对世界的塑造,并一同思考今日世界秩序的困境与现实。


In 1968, millions of people strived for their rights all over the world. The anti-war movement became a vehicle that united people’s appeals against capitalism, imperialism, racism, and bureaucracy. The year 1968 became the resonating moment that disconcerted the global capitalist order for good.

Also in 1968, images of the Vietnam War, transmitted through the satellites, appeared on the television screens in every American household. Marked by these images, the Beat Generation disappeared from their social roles to make their stands against any authorities. The Cold War military and space race stimulated the popular imaginations of possible social ends. Street movements inspired new urban control technologies and spatial organization methods. Situationists expanded resistance along the spatial dimension through art practices. Cybernetics blurred the boundary between humans, animals, and machines. The development of environmental control technologies enabled the formation of many radical architectural associations. Architecture became a medium of critical thinking, which motored the transformation of architecture as a discipline. In the second half of the 20th century, media technologies profoundly reshaped the order of the world.

However, resistance at its best could only make the gigantic exchange machine more resilient. The reshuffled capitalism order today marks the tragic reconciliation between the 68-generation and their oedipus youth. 50 years later, consumerism, domesticates radical languages from the past and uses phrases like “resistance” or “emancipation” to elaboratetheir selling strategies. Anti-culture resistance ironically becomes a footnote of commodity fetishism.

PILLS, together with The Paper and One Way Street, launches a special issue under the title of “Radical Technologies.” The issue invites submissions to reexamine the technological revolutions launched 50 years ago that disconcerted the late capitalist order, and reshaped the world today.

Pills是一个以当代空间文化为核心的复合型建筑工作室。我们的兴趣主要集中在:资本与空间政治、环境控制与技术哲学、全球化与基础设施、当代媒介文化与生产消费关系、影像与媒体技术等。我们希望以更具思辨性的方式重新定义当代城市与建筑学的议程,并以多种方式观察和介入当代文化,更深入地探讨空间生产背后的机制,并尝试勾勒出当代世界的图景与人的生存状态。我们的工作领域主要包括:建筑与城市设计、装置与艺术作品、策展与建筑策划、影像与多媒体制作、独立出版等思辨性实践。

Pills is a cross-disciplinary design and research office, whose work focuses on contemporary spatial culture. We are interested in capital and spatial politics, environmental control and philosophy oftechnology, globalization and infrastructure, contemporary media culture and production-consumption relations, film and media technologies. We hope to redefine contemporary urban and architectural issues with critical approaches,to influence contemporary culture with multiple observation methods, to discuss the mechanism behind spatial productions in further depth, and to depict the contemporary world picture and human conditions in greater clarity. Our work in cludes critical practices in many fields, such as architectural and urban design, installation and art practice, curation and architectural planning,multi-media production and independent publication.
