“the new in the old”: On Variantologies of the Internet

In Deep Time of the Media: Toward an Anarchaeology of Hearing and Seeing by Technical Means, Siegfried Zielinski proposes and models a theoretical deportment and a methodological practice for studying media—defined as “spaces of action for constructed attempts to connect what is separate”.1 He refers to this form of inquiry using the terms “anarchaeology” and “variantology.” The first—a recasting of Foucault’s seminal archaeological method—recommends an intellectual ethos that “reserve[s] the option to gallop off on a tangent, to be wildly enthusiastic, and, at the same time, to criticize what needs to be criticized.”2 The second, variantology, is an epistemological result of the anarchaeological stance. 1,137 more words
