Benjamin H. Bratton - La Terraformation 2019
French edition
Les presses du réel – Criticism, theory & documents – ArTeC
A provocative and stimulating manifesto by Benjamin Bratton that promotes new ways of inhabiting (and artificialising) the planet, facing the environmental, economic and social crisis that radically belies the possibility of a continuation of the current globalised capitalist model.
Benjamin H. Bratton - E-flux journal - Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution
English edition
Sternberg Press - E-flux journal
Benjamin H. Bratton's kaleidoscopic theory-fiction links the utopian fantasies of political violence with the equally utopian programs of security and control. Equal parts Borges, Burroughs, Baudrillard, and Black Ops, Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution charts a treacherous landscape filled with paranoid master plans, failed schemes, and dubious histories.
