Human RangeTheo Deutinger in conversation with Andreas Ruby and Andreas Kofler

The history of turning land into territory and people into citizens is directly linked to the history of military technology. Owning or even just maintaining territory is and always has been linked to the ability to defend it. The increase in human range has led to the rise of individual power. Today, one person with a firearm covers the same range as 1,300 Stone Age people—the size of an army brigade. The result is an increasing overlap in ranges of power. The lecture Human Range wants to discuss the relationship between humans, technology and land with the example of the “sphere of influence”.
