November 5, 2014 /  #Accelerate round-up

There has been a lot of #Accelerate-related action recently - here's a brief round-up:

- Bayern Radio recently broadcast a fantastic show on accelerationism, With Techno and Terminator against Capital, complete with music picked by editor Robin Mackay, including some CCRU productions.

- There is a forthcoming event, The Accelerationist Trial at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in December, scheduled to coincide with a forthcoming issue of Multitudes.

- Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek, authors of the Accelerationist Manifesto, are Interviewed in Libération.

- Over at 3AM magazine Alex Galloway discusses Accelerationism with Benjamin Noys, whose new book Malign Velocities expands and elaborates his critical take on the idea.

- The Dark Ecologies blog continues its excellent series of readings of #Accelerate with a post on Benedict Singleton's take on Cosmism.

- CCBLAB have an Interview with Editor Robin Mackay.

- A call for papers for a Prague workshop on education and acceleration.

- Lastly, and most intriguing of all, Vice have a story on Health Goth, a fashion movement which is apparently aligned with Accelerationism.

Elle contient le texte essentiel de Nick Land, Fission (Meltdown) ainsi qu'un essai de Robin Mackay, 'Une expérience dans l'inhumanisme' sur l'histoire de Land et son travail à Warwick dans les années 90.
