La description:

Modernity has had so many meanings and carries so many contradictory values that it crashes like a computer program full of bugs every time we use it to define the future. We need to reset modernity's operating system. This is what the contributors to Reset Modernity! try to do, asking us to experience the range of contradictory values of modernity and identify what to keep and what to abandon. Reset Modernity! shows the vital importance of deciding how we will inhabit the Earth in the future without losing the values that we have learned to cherish during the history of the moderns. Reset Modernity!, which accompanies a major exhibition at ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, relies for conceptual inspiration on Bruno Latour's An Inquiry into Modes of Existence and the innovative web project, modesofexistence.org (AIME). The goal is to document the shock generated by the meeting between modernity and ecological mutation. The book, generously illustrated, with color throughout, includes short essays by participants in AIME as well as longer texts by Bruno Latour, Peter Weibel, and others. They discuss such topics as why the global is not that global and why the natural is not that natural; the ethology of pluralism ("What are politicians for?"); and the ground on which walk and live.
