Join us to celebrate the launch of Gerald Raunig’s new book – Dividuum: Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution
Gerald Raunig in conversation with Stefan Nowotny
Monday 20th June, 6.00-8.00pm
Richard Hoggart Building, Room 309
The animal of the molecular revolution will be neither mole nor snake, but a drone-animal-thing that is solid, liquid, and a gas.
As the philosophical, religious, and historical systems that have produced the “individual” (and its counterparts, society and community) over the years continue to break down, the age of “dividuality” is now upon us. Gerald Raunig charts a genealogy of the concept and develops a philosophy of dividuality as a way of addressing contemporary modes of production and forms of life. Through its components of dispersion, subsistence, and similarity, dividuality becomes a hidden principle of obedience and conformity, but it also brings with it the potential to realize disobedience and noncompliant con/dividualities.
Organised by the Department of Visual Cultures and the Centre for Philosophy and Critical Thought
