A Critical Vocabulary
Bunz, Mercedes (editor)

Thiele, Kathrin (editor)
This book explores the future of critique in view of our planetary condition. How are we to intervene in contemporary constellations of finance capitalism; climate change and neoliberalism? Think we must! To get to the symptoms; the book’s 38 terms ranging from affect and affirmation to world and work provide the reader with a critical toolbox to be continued. Negativity; judgment and opposition as modes of critique have run out of steam. Critique as an attitude and a manner of enquiry has not.
