Speculative Futures: Steven Shaviro and Alexander Galloway

Shaviro The Universe of Things; Galloway Laruelle

It's a speculative accelerated realist bootleg throwdown! This episode features Steven Shaviro and Alexander Galloway discussing their recently published books The Universe of Things: On Speculative Realism and Laruelle: Against the Digital. Dominic Pettman introduces and Eugene Thacker moderates this conversation that took place at the New School in November 2014. An additional recording of Shaviro discussing the #Accelerationism movement in June 2014 at Pro QM in Berlin appears at the end of the episode. The sound quality is a bit buggy from start to finish--difficult to hear on occasion, encoding hiccups, cell phone interference and more--reminders from the Real of objects' permanent permeability, as well their ineludable availability to disruption and translation?
