Smash the strata! A programme for techo-political (r)evolution

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Technology is latent with the possibility of developing a new mode of techno-politics capable of redressing the instrumental abuses of modern politics. No doubt such a possibility must contend with images of IBM punch cards ‘processing’ humanity for murder during the Holocaust, as well as deal with the one-dimensionality of the ubiquitous screens of the spectacle. Nevertheless, in the work of Deleuze and Guattari_there are suggestions that we need not fear the role of technology in the struggle against political oppression. Against a tradition of repression and discipline, they propose a programme of flight and flow
