DCS | Digital Culture and Society | Vol. 2, Issue 1 | © transcript 2016 DOI 10.14361/dcs-2016-0108 Casual Power Understanding User Interfaces through Quantification Alex Gekker Abstract The paper draws parallels between quantification as found in the user interfaces of video games, to similar elements of more “serious” devices, in particular mapping and navigational platforms. I present an autoethnographic study of a mundane experience that would be familiar to many Google Maps users: locating a nearby place of inter- est and figuring out how to reach it. The

Art Power Boris Groys Introduction The first thing one learns by reading the majority of texts on modern and contemporary art is this: both modern and — even to a greater extent — contemporary art are radically pluralistic. This fact seems to preclude once and for all the possibility of writing on modern art as a specific phenomenon, as a result of the collective work of several gene- rations of artists, curators, and theoreticians — for example, in the same manner in which one would write on Renaissance or Baroque art.

The control of the culture of remembrance thus contributes “to the

Space, Power, Transgression NIKITA DHAWAN THE PRODUCTION OF SPACE Every society, understood in terms of modes of production and social regimes, is spatialised in a unique way. Critical theorists of space1 highlight how space and power work in tandem so that the space of a society is formed as per the codified logic of modern power implemented by the interests of hegemonic groups like, for example, capitalists, bureaucrats, city planners. This spatial code regulates everyday life of citizens and subalterns. Any discussion of space must address

Chapter 9 Feminism and Class Power* 1 bell hooks Revolutionary feminist thinking has always raised the issue of classism among women.

Just as militant black liberation struggle calling for an

Gendered Geographies of Power Ein Modell zur Analyse von Bildungsmigration und Geschlecht am Beispiel von Malaysia und Singapur Viola Thimm In Asien leben circa die Hälfte der Weltbevölkerung und fast zwei Drit- tel der weltweiten Arbeitskräfte.1 Die besondere Geschwindigkeit und das besondere Ausmaß an ökonomischen, politischen, sozialen und demo- grafischen Veränderungen in Asien führen seit den 1960er-Jahren zu Arbeitsmigrationen, und zwar sowohl innerhalb einzelner als auch zwi- schen verschiedenen Staaten. Dabei bildete sich in den letzten Jahrzehn- ten
