Marinetti’s “Futurist Manifesto” and the worldwide race toward a new and highly mechanized society that defined the “Century of Progress,” highly respected media activist Franco Berardi traces the genesis of future-oriented thought through the punk frsnco of the early ’70s and into the media revolution of the ’90s.
Cyberculture, the last truly utopian vision of the future, has ended in a clash, and left behind an ever-growing system of virtual life and actual death, of virtual knowledge and actual war. Our future, Berardi argues, has come and gone; the concept has lost its usefulness. Now it’s our responsibility to decide what comes next. Drawing on his own involvement with the Autonomia movement in Italy and his collaboration and friendship with leading thinkers of the European political left, including Felix Guattari and Antonio Negri, Berardi presents a highly nuanced analysis of the state of the contemporary working class, and charts a course out of the modern dystopian moment.
