Brian Eno and Evgeny Morozov

A Conversation About Technology and Democracy

In this wide-ranging conversation, Brian Eno and Evgeny Morozov draw on a number of recent high-profile political events to discuss the future of capitalism, democracy, and the role of technology in both. Do we need a new kind of politics to match this challenge, and, if so, what should it look like? As data extractivism, automation, and digital, platform-based monopolies become a matter of growing concern for economic policy, what kinds of solutions - basic income? new forms of data ownership?- are viable and political desirable? Most of all, what role should technological sovereignty play in facilitating them?

Participants: Brian Eno, Evgeny Morozov, Francesca Bria
