Zirkulation. Einleitung in den Schwerpunkt


The concept of «circulation» has recently come to hold considerable appeal to the humanities and social sciences, mainly due to the aspects of movement it implies. The concept is being applied today to (nearly) everything that bridges distances und changes positions. Thinking about circulation in this sense implies a conception of order. Our aim is to make visible and place into question such ideas of order through the articulation of three dimensions: the opening and closing of circular movements, the mediated observation of circulation, and the role of infrastructure.
