Hamid Ekbia, IFK_Senior Fellow in summer fall 2016, gave us a hint and sent us an article which came out in the Economist in December, describes Vienna as “the city of the century”. "You should be all proud of it!", wrote Hamid.
The current contradictory moment in human history can be understood as one of rational order, rapid transformation, and global integration, on the one hand, and of cultural dissonance, social disintegration, and rampant disorder, on the other. Drones vividly and viciously capture this moment, while also regenerating it, as Hamid Ekbia shows in his work.
