JKU Corona Update Live on April 23, 2020

Society after Corona - The great German thinker Bazon Brock and the philosophy professor Julian Reiss discuss the deep social consequences of Corona.


Society after Corona - The great German thinker Bazon Brock and the newly appointed philosophy professor Julian Reiss will discuss the profound social consequences of Corona in the JKU Corona Update on April 23. Media artist Peter Weibel sees us - driven by Corona - at the gate to long-distance society. The futurologist Matthias Horx recognizes a force in the pandemic with which the future can change its direction, indeed reinvent itself in a positive sense. Bazon Brock gave these partly euphoric predictions about life after Corona in the daily newspaper “Die Welt” a clear rejection. Today he and the philosopher Julian Reiss are a guest in the JKU Corona Update with Rector Meinhard Lukas.

The JKU Corona Update has opened up many perspectives on the Corona crisis: The economist Gabriel Felbermayr predicts that we will get poorer due to Corona, the public health expert Martin Sprenger refers to the collateral damage in the health system through our virological tunnel vision, the educational scientist Stephan Huber sees Equal opportunities and educational equality in schools are endangered by the Corona crisis and chief conductor and musicologist Markus Poschner misses the prospects for cultural workers.

Today, Thursday, society is up for discussion after Corona. Rector Meinhard Lukas has the following scientists as guests:

  • Bazon Brock, professor emeritus for aesthetics and cultural mediation
  • Julian Reiss, Professor of Philosophy and Philosophy of Science, JKU
