Wolfgang Hagen is one of the most important media theorists in Germany. Hagen was the chief editor of the media & culture department at “Deutschlandradio Kultur”, the public radio station. His most recent book is “The Radio”. In the discussion he will present his central thesis: The media predates us. How does this affect our future?
