every control and guidance system was actually designed that way. Electronic games become a new kind of environment for the players, to which they hook up, become a part of and actively socialize in (as long as they abide by the rules). This is not much different from the socialization process in real-world society. 44 | René Bauer ANALOG LIFE IN GAME MECHANICS Computer games have playfully accompanied, inspired and asserted the trans- formation of our (economically oriented) society into a digital cybernetic and rule-based society.

-presentation: through art the subject practices self-objectivation and, thus, offers itself to approval or rejection by the world society. So, one could believe that in the age of the Internet the traditional art institutions—with all their rituals of selection and presentation—became obsolete. However, in our time one can see the growth of the museums of contem- porary art all over the world and one registers the fact that the public of the big exhibitions of contemporary art, such as Venice Biennale or Documenta in Kassel, is also permanently growing. Why is it so? If one

actor-network theory, the Global South is a field of research, as at least some studies on Africa show which refer to the translation of concepts or travelling models (Behrends et al. 2014; Czarniawska and Sevón 1996). Another field where sociology has developed an interest beyond the Global North is neo-institutionalism with its concept of a ‘world society’ or ‘world polity’ (Drori et al., 2003; Meyer et al., 1997). This approach argues that the seemingly universal socio-political structures do not dominate simply because of their functionality, but are linked to

actors. Interestingly, in dominant security thinking the world tends to be imagined as highly globalized when it comes to the threats, which states in the “zone of peace” are facing, while causes for transnational activi- ties such as organized crime and terrorism are imagined to be rooted rather in non-Western states or regions, which belong to the “zone of turmoil.”5 This disre- gards that illegal practices are embedded into the same structures of world society that encompass the legal sides of politics and economy, and that both spheres are indissolubly tied

whole (cf. e.g. Parsons 1967, 1971; Eisenstadt 2000); since globalization has been discussed as a new major social trend, the vanishing point of sociological macro-analysis in principle has been either to describe the current shape of world society or to describe and explain its emergence and implications (cf. e.g. Wallerstein 1979; Meyer et al. 1997). Finally, macro-entities are said to be constituted by “emergent properties” (cf. Etzioni 1970) that distinguish them from a mere accumulation of individuals. All this clearly indicates that ‘macro’ does not only
