The book argues that necropolitics are a dominant, yet obscene, form of politics that sustains contemporary racism (racialization) as a primal ideology of global capitalism and connects globalization and its modernist narratives directly with colonialism. The book is important for those-and this means almost all of us-working with relations of modes of life and global capitalism and with articulations of political and epistemological principles onto which capitalism organizes its more

Review quote

[This book] is ... an original contribution to the newest political history and theory of the region, one that has rarely been offered to the reader. Borderlands At the forefront of contemporary critical discourse we find a new category being formulated-the un-exploitable. They present us with the true nature of the regime under which we live-a regime which administrates death rather than life. This book in a unique collaboration between two authors, corresponding through its chapters, proposing together an invincible argument: everything has to be different. Grzinic and Tatlic make clear that the current necropolitical formation of Neoliberalism is not fate or destiny, nor is it a mistake or an accident. The authors insist on the political act of historicizing the modes of production, of life, of State, of politics, and of art, and analyzing the ways they are naturalized by current modes of capitalism. For those who might still believe that Fascism was defeated in Europe in the 1940s, this book makes clear-the fight is on. -- Joshua Simon, director and chief curator at Museums of Bat Yam, author of Neomaterialismshow more
