引言

AI 与 ChatGPT 的兴起,自然语言的历史(语料库)与使用自然语言的能力 (/prompt 提示)成为人与 AI 最亲密的互为主体世界。AI是人类普遍智能(马克思意义上)的表现,也是个人与普遍文化的对话训练。文化不外于技术发展史,(普遍)文化有自身的历史地域的抗争。这是“反文化”的意义,不是另类的,而是对立存在曾有一切的可能性。

自从文字的载体印刷术,声学储存的留声机的发明,光学成为双眼外映射的现实,历史就不再能成为单一的大叙事。历史分流于声学(留声机)、光学 (电影)与文学(打字机),就媒介角度而言,现代主义之后以自然语言为基础的文字印刷不再成为历史延续,人类总体记忆的储藏库,因为已经没有连续、可通译的阐释学了,而是不可通译、只能换位[transpose]的密码学,这是跨媒体的高光时刻,换位、借位、装配、相互转译成为市场上的宠儿,(好的)当代艺术只不过以独特美学来展示技术演进交付给人类的文明任务而已(自带政治觉醒成为反此文明任务的形式)。

电学开始了,信息理论出现,数位技术终结了媒介的历史。因为所有的一切都可以成为数字─文学、数字─电影、数字─ 绘画、数字─艺术…就这点意义而言,计算机是“终结了一切媒介的媒介”,也终结了“历史”。如同Friedrich Kittle说的:“数字技术带来了某种弥赛亚式的终点”。数位革命之后再没有革命了。

然而,文化是人文学科的志业,不取决于个人意向,而是取决于基于自然语言所可能的所有媒体。每一种技术发展都镶嵌于特定的文化中,“反文化”不仅反对技术发展论的单一思考,也是扩充、改变、宣传技术环境的媒介。人文学科曾经快要拜倒在能阅读字母和数字的现代机器(计算机)的光线照射下,由是,我们需要建立“反文化”的新阵地,不仅仅是反抗的,嬉皮式的,或逃逸路线,而是对立的基地。这基地应该包含更广泛的政治经济批判、性/别批判、媒介批判、阶级批判、技术哲学思考、全球南方观点等等。换句话说,要挑战单一技术线性发展史观,使得人文学科再度成为维系人类思想高度但不惧于思辨技术发展之一切可能的堡垒。今年会议,我们邀请了中国台湾、法国、巴西、葡萄牙、美国、俄罗斯等国家及地区的学者、艺术家、工程师一同,开启新的“反抗基地”!

历年由INS主办的网络社会年会,已经有超过百位的学者发表过主题演讲,五百多位的艺术家、策展人、青年学者在公开征稿下发表自己的想法,结合黑客松、科幻写作松活动汇集全世界极富创意与批判的头脑进行共同生产。今年网络社会年会将以AIathon开始,随后举行郑淑丽影片的大陆首映会,以及年会会议、思想实验等活动,最终以一部影像论文的发布结尾!欢迎各位!

INTRODUCTION

The emergence of AI and ChatGPT has marked a significant milestone in the history of natural language, both in terms of linguistic corpora and the utilization of natural language through prompts. AI stands as a manifestation of human general intelligence(particularly in the Marxist sense)and serves as a means for individuals to engage in a dialogue with the broader cultural milieu. Culture is inherently intertwined with the history and geographical struggles of technology’s development. This holds the significance of “counter-culture,” not as an alternative, but as a contrasting existence that once harbored the full spectrum of possibilities.

Ever since the advent of the printing press as a means of textual transmission, the invention of phonographic devices for sound storage, and the realization of optical representation through cinema, history can no longer be encapsulated within a single grand narrative. History has diverged into the realms of acoustics (phonograph), optics (film), and literature (typewriter). From a media perspective, after modernism, text printed on paper, grounded in natural language, no longer serves as a continuum, a repository for the collective human memory. There is no longer a continuous and translatable hermeneutics. Instead, it has become a cryptology of displacement, one that can only be transposed. This marks a zenith of inter-media dynamics, where transposition, borrowing, assemblage, and mutual translation have become darlings in the marketplace.Contemporary art, distinguished by its unique aesthetics, merely showcases the technological evolution delivered to humanity’s civilizational mission. It inherently carries a form of political awakening, serving as a counterforce to this civilizational mission.

The advent of electronics marked a new era in history, as information theory emerged, and digital technology brought an end to the history of media. This is because everything can be digitized, from literature to digital film, digital painting, digital art, and more. In this sense, the computer becomes the “medium of all media,” ending not only the history of media but also “history” itself. As Friedrich Kittler said, “Digital technology has brought a kind of messianic endpoint.” After the digital revolution, there was no revolution left to be had.

Nonetheless, culture remains the pursuit of the humanities, not determined by individual intentions but by the possibilities offered by all media based on natural language. Each technological development is embedded within a specific culture. “Counter-culture” not only opposes the singular perspective of technological development but also serves as a medium for expanding, transforming, and propagating the technological environment. The humanities were once on the verge of surrendering to modern machines (computers) that could read letters and numbers. Therefore, we need to establish a new “counter-cultural” site that goes beyond mere resistance, alternative, hippy or escape routes; it should be a foundation of opposition.This site should encompass broader political-economic critiques, gender critiques, media critiques, class critiques, philosophical reflections on technology, and perspectives from the Global South. In other words, it aims to challenge the monolithic linear perspective of technological development, allowing the humanities to once again become a fortress that upholds the heights of human thought while embracing all the possibilities of speculative technological development. In this year’s conference, we have invited scholars, artists, and engineers from Taiwan, France, Brazil, Portugal, the United States, and Russia to jointly embark on a new “counter-cultural” endeavor!

Over the years, the Institue of Network Society (INS) has hosted Annual Conferences, featuring over a hundred scholars who have delivered keynote speeches. More than five hundred artists, curators, and young scholars have shared their ideas through open submissions, creating a platform that amalgamates creativity and critical thinking from around the world. This year’s Conference will commence with an AI hackathon, followed by the China premiere of Zheng Shuli’s film, the annual conference itself, a thought experiment workshop, and the release of a film essay. All are welcome to participate!

Chen Chieh-jen

Born in 1960 in Taoyuan, Taiwan, Chen Chieh-jen currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. Since 1996, he has collaborated with unemployed laborers, day workers, migrant workers, foreign spouses, unemployed youth and social activists. Together, they have occupied capitalist-owned factories, slipped into areas cordoned off by the law, and utilized discarded materials to build sets for his video productions. In order to visualize contemporary reality and a people’s history obscured by neoliberalism, Chen embarked on a series of video projects in which he used strategies he calls “re-imagining, re-narrating, re-writing and re-connecting” to further his goal of generating dissent and starting a second wave movement.

Starting in 2010, Chen began actively focusing on the fact that many people around the world have been reduced to working temporary jobs and lost sense of existence due to and lost sense of existence due to the corporatocracy’s pervasive control technology. Chen calls this universal situation “global imprisonment” or “at-home exile.” Based on these ruminations, Chen has considered how pervasive control technology can be qualitatively changed by transforming desire with alternative forms of desire and detoxifying illusion with māyā.

Lev Manovich
