CFP: A neoliberal counter-revolution? Cultural Imaginaries, Political Subjectivities and New World Order (1979 – 2019)

The international conference “A neoliberal counter-revolution? Cultural Imaginaries, Political Subjectivities and New World Order (1979 – 2019)” will take place on 16 and 17 September 2021 at MACBA. Responding to the reflections developed in the framework of the research projects Decentralised Modernitie(s) and Fossil Aesthetics, this international conference asks about the role that cultural imaginaries have played in the shaping of neoliberal subjectivity during the period from 1979 to 2019.

Release of the book – Estética fósil by Jaime Vindel

“Estética fósil” by Jaime Vindel explains how the recourse to fossil fuels as the primary energy source of the Industrial Revolution and the irruption of thermodynamic physics in the mid-19th century were accompanied by a series of cultural imaginaries that instituted a productivist worldview of the relationship between humanity and nature.
