Christoph Raetzsch: New Infrastructures of Publics and the Circulation of Communicative Objects

In this episode Christoph Raetzsch drafts an infrastructural perspective on the public sphere through the concept of communicative objects. Instead of the normative approach on the technological and socio-cultural formation of public communication, the concept is intended to question the importance of journalism as a central agent of the public and overcome the normative distinction between public and private communication.
