His main thesis: all our knowledge and all we see as true is determined by the technical device that is used by our culture. In the centre of attention is the network of technical device and institutions which help any culture execute addressing, memorizing and processing of the data. He is influenced by Jacques Lacan’s and Michel Foucault’s writings . In 1984, he earned his Habilitation in the field of Modern German Literary History. This was considered a pioneering work for Culturology, Literary theory and Mediology in Germany.

In 1987 he was appointed Professor of Modern German Studies at the Ruhr University. In 1993 he was appointed to the chair for Media Aesthetics and History at the Humboldt University of Berlin. He founded a Berlin School of Mediology and cofounded a Centre for Art and Media Technology (ZKM Karlsruhe).
