Die Automation, deren Anwendung heute ohne den umfassenden Einsatz von Informationstechnologien allerdings nicht möglich wäre, ist seit den 1980er Jahren eine wesentliche technologische Komponente der neuen internationalen Dynamik der Kapitalakkumulation, wobei weltweit einerseits sogar neue Arbeitsplätze geschaffen (vor allem in Asien), andererseits in den Kernländern des Kapitals massenhaft Arbeiter aus ...

From a Philosophically Clean-Shaven Marx to a Philosophically Decolonized Deleuze

21 Jun , 2017  

[This is a really rough outline/introductory sketch for the third chapter of my dissertation, which takes up the relationship between the persisting residual eurocentrism in specific interpretations of D&G’s political project, and how D&G themselves constructed a framework by which to eradicate its lasting traces in both thinking and revolutionary ...

Tiqqun on speed and strategy

17 Jun , 2017  

People have often insisted — T.E. Lawrence is no exception — on the kinetic dimensions of politics and war as a strategic counterpoint to a quantitative concept of relations of force. That’s the typical guerrilla perspective as opposed to the traditional perspective. It’s been said that if it can’t be ...

Slime ethics: Lovecraft and becoming-alien

16 Jun , 2017  

In recent years H.P. Lovecraft gathered a lot of interest from modern philosophers, most  visibly in the writings of Graham Harman and other speculative realists like Reza Negarestani or Eugene Thacker. His writings were also, perhaps unexpectedly, taken up by queer and feminist theorists like Patricia MacCormack or Donna Haraway. ...

Brometheanism

16 Jun , 2017  

In recent months I’ve remained quiet about the speculative turn, mostly because I’m reticent to rekindle the “Internet war” that broke out a couple of years ago mostly on blogs but also in various published papers. And while I’ve taught accelerationism in my recent graduate seminars, I opted for radio ...

The Myth of the ‘Human Enterprise’: The Anthropos and Capitalogenic Change

15 Jun , 2017  

Humans are distinctive. No one is arguing the point. But how do we think through that distinctiveness? How do our conceptualizations lead us to highlight some relations over others, and how do those in/visibilities conform to – and challenge – extant structures of power (Bourdieu and Wacquant 1992; Sohn-Rethel 1978)? ...

Name the System! Anthropocenes & the Capitalocene Alternative

13 Jun , 2017  

The Anthropocene has become the most important – and also the most dangerous — environmentalist concept of our times. It is dangerous not because it gets planetary crisis so wrong, but because it simultaneously clarifies ongoing “state shifts” in planetary natures while mystifying the history behind them (Barnosky et al. ...

Erste Annäherung an die Mikrologien des Grauens

13 Jun , 2017  

Die Welt ist das System des Grauens. (Theodor W. Adorno) … ist es nur ein von Trostlosigkeit und Grauen umgebenes Bild […] im stillen Zentrum des Unglücks. (Guy Debord) Es ist eher Grauen als Traurigkeit. Ja, eher Grauen. Es ist, als passiere gleich was Schreckliches, das Schrecklichste, was man sich ...
