This new site is a preservation and diffusion space of Vilém Flusser’s thinking. It promotes and organizes the publication of his work in Brazil and in the world.
The IiAphR (Interdisziplinärer Arbeitskreis für philosophische Reflexion – Interdisciplinary working group for philosophical reflection) was founded in 1996 and is led by Frauke A. Kurbacher-Schönborn (Berlin) and Karin Wendt (Münster).
Equivalence: This site was founded by Andreas Müller-Pohle, a friend of the Flussers and the publisher of many of Vilém Flusser’s works of the 1980’s and 1990’s. It contains a short biography, a larger autobiographical text written by Flusser himself in Brazilian in the late sixties (translated into German by Edith Flusser), a German and English Glossary of essential Flusserian terms, a reference to the 10 volumes of the Edition Flusser, as well as a page of general information related to Flusseriana.
Die Flusser Files: This mainly German site was created by Claudia Klinger. It contains, among other things, a German and Italian report on the Puchheim Symposium on Flusser held in 1999, a list of available books, various comments and texts. Of interest are also the Flusser Surfboard and Reinhold Grether’s original contribution starting out from Flusser’s own remark: His name would signify ‘pebble found in a river and used for glass manufacturing.’
Vilém Flusser no Brasil: This Brazilian and English site was created by Ricardo Mendes. It is dedicated to the years when Flusser lived in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. It contains the text Flusser: uma historia dos diabos and a biographical survey of his life written by Ricardo Mendez himself as part of an academic publication released in 2000 (both can be downloaded). One can consult a biographical data bank of Flusser’s writings as well as two pages of links to texts by (in English, French and Portuguese) and on Flusser (in English, French, German and Portuguese) to be found on the internet.
