#Accelerate.The Accelerationist Reader
Accelerationism is the name of a political heresy: the insistence that the only radical political response to capitalism is not protest, disrupt, or critique, but to accelerate and exacerbate its uprooting, alienating, decoding, abstractive tendencies.
At the forefront of the energetic contemporary debate around the disputed term, galvanized by the poverty of 'reasonable' political alternatives. #Accelerate activates a historical conversation about futurality, technology, politics, enjoyment and capital.
