NC Premium Masterclass with Alexander Bard
November 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Alexander Bard is a philosopher and futurologist, based in Stockholm, Sweden. He is the author of five books: “The Netocrats, “The Global Empire”, “The Body Machines”, “Syntheism – Creating God in The Internet Age” and “Digital Libido – Sex, Power and Violence in The Network Society” with his co-writer Jan Söderqvist. Bard is a radical process philosopher, merging Hegel and Nietzsche with Whitehead and Deleuze, using human beings as the constant and technological disruption as the variable while working toward the deepest possible understanding of human history, contemporary society, and how to approach the intensely technology-driven future that humanity is facing. Bard has also enjoyed a highly successful 25-year-career as a producer and artist in the international music industry and is a celebrity in his native Sweden as a tough love, reality-checking judge on TV shows “Swedish Idol” and “Sweden’s Got Talent”.
