Closures: A Non-Linear Sketch of the Bunker State

4 Jan , 2017  

A “closed world” is a radically bounded scene of conflict, an inescapably self-referential space where every thought, word, and action is ultimately directed back toward a central struggle. It is a world radically divided against itself. Turned inexorably inward, without frontiers or escape, a closed world threatens to annihilate itself, ...

3 Jan , 2017  

Counter-insurgency is a urgent issue in American life today–indeed around the world–as state and non-state actors alike perfect the art of subduing popular upheaval. Viewing individuals and populations as liabilities even threats, the army and the police have been forced to adopt a series of new tactics, from urban warfare

Worum ging es in den letzten Tagen? Es ging um Wiederholungen und Einschnitte. ...

The Big No/Conference

16 Dez , 2016  

What does “no” say? Who and what says “no?”

No’s eruptive force transforms the argumentative landscape. From two-year old children to mature nation-states, the interruptive immediacy of naysaying can occur at surprising and inconvenient moments. The ability to refuse emerges early and maintains its appeal and power. In cultures of ...

… Il primo motivo dell’importanza dell’azione di Szepanski, dunque, è legato al movimento verso l’esterno della filosofia deleuziana – un pensiero-rostro che uncina l’ electro , la ciberne- tica, così già predisposto nella sua stessa essenza astratta. Ne-gli anni novanta, infatti, si trattava di collegare tale gesto alle istanze artistiche ...

“We do not lack communication,” Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari wrote in What Is Philosophy?, their final joint text. “On the contrary, we have too much of it. We lack creation. We lack resistance to the present.”[1] During the course of an interview with Antonio Negri, Deleuze raised a ...

David Harvey hat in seinen letzten Beiträgen immer wieder darauf hingewiesen, dass die marxistische Theorie die Mehrwertproduktion im Dienstleistungssektor und in der Zirkulationssphäre bisher zu wenig beachtet hat. So ist es in den USA nicht mehr General Motors, sondern es sind McDonalds und Walmart, wo die quantitativ breiteste Ausbeutung statfindet, ...

The Nonhuman: Apophatic or Cataphatic?

Die Re-Regulierung des internationalen Kapitals seit den 1970er Jahren

29 Nov , 2016  

Als historischer Ausgangspunkt für die neue Epoche der umfassenden Finanzialisierung wird vielfach das Ende des Fordismus Anfang der 1970er Jahre angegeben. Der Fordismus als ein spezifisch kapitalistisches Akkumulationsregime, das ein dynamisches und zugleich gleichgewichtiges Wachstum im harmonischen Zusammenspiel von Produktivität, Reallöhnen und Profiten ermöglichte. Seit Anfang der 1960er Jahre korrespondierte ...

Acceleration, Revolution and Money in Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus

11 Nov , 2016  

The essay moves from the conceptual place where the “philosophical plane faces the chaos” (Deleuze-Guattari/1991).  From a deep distance trapped in the past and the discretion of the dawn, a different thought and a different culture (re)emerge. The book presents a new Deleuze, more accelerationist than Srnicek and Williams, more ...

Desiring machines make us an organism; but at the very heart of this production, the body suffers from being organized in this way, from not having some other sort of organization, or no organization at all.
