Weakness Resides in Rigidity
How many resources are mobilized each day to produce the same thing over and over? Look at our everyday life and all the clones around us, from rolls to furniture. Stable structures promise us security. Really? On the creed of conservatism and the difficulty of thinking change. A critique by Geoffrey C. Bowker. From the series HKW Talk on the Anthropocene.

Geoffrey C. Bowker is professor of informatics at University of California in Irvine. Bernd Scherer is director of Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
