Gilles ChâteletAn uproarious portrait of the evils of ‘market democracy’ and a technical manual for its innermost ideological workings, this is the story of how the perverted legacy of liberalism sought to knead Marx’s ‘free peasant’ into a statistical ‘average man’—pliant raw material for the sausage-machine of postmodernity.
Negarestani sharply asserts abstraction's origins as the dialectic between form (mathematics) and sensible matter (physics) and its otherwise flat interpretation in art history, and presents us with the redemptive possibilities for its enrichment and diversification through the lens of artistic practice.
Robin Mackay (Ed.)
In order to survey those practices in which intellectual resources are most acutely concentrated on the production and exploitation of risk, and to uncover the conceptual underpinnings of methods developed to extract value from contingency this volume brings together contributors who extend the philosophical thinking of contingency beyond the 'casino' model.
