Return of the M/acc: A Survey of Left Accelerationisms
What is ‘left accelerationism’? (Are there more than one?) How has capitalism changed and what implications does it hold for emancipatory politics? In this episode, we examine some of the essential literature of L/acc, giving particular focus to Karl Marx’s “Fragment on Machines” from Grundrisse and Williams and Srnicek’s “Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics”. Figures also included in the discussion are Deleuze and Guattari, Hardt & Negri, Nick Land, Mark Fisher, Tiqqun, and Andrew Culp.
