“Synthetic images as an answer to Auschwitz” (“We Shall Survive in the Memory of Others”)1asserted Vilém Flusser (1920–1991) forcefully in an interview shortly before his death. Only by passing through radical abstraction could a new concretization, and thus a new and exciting life become imaginable: With this, post-history would begin. Flusser proactively took up the challenge of rethinking the arts, in the face of the fact that our existence is essentially determined by technology. To connect the methods of science with a new understanding of culture is the key concern of his special anthropology.
