„There are no healthy people left in the world“ – This profane announcement appears in Plague Inc. (Ndemic Creations 2012), a digital disease[1] simulator. It proudly proclaims that the pathogen, which was raised to deadly infectiousness and efficiency by the player, has now conquered the world and thus irreversibly driven human civilization to the brink of its existence. The disease as the destroyer of worlds in Plague Inc.

Since 2010 this multi-generational collective has been gathering together around experimental knowledge practices.

Second International Conference "Science in culture"

Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.

The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.
