Dissemblage. Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution
Gerald Raunig

Following Dividuum (2015), Gerald Raunig presents the second volume of “Machinic Capitalism and Molecular Revolution.” Dissemblage unfolds a
wild abundance of material of unruliness, from the multilingual translation machines of Al-Andalus to the queer mysticism of the High
Middle Ages, from the small voices of the falsetto in 20th century jazz and soul to today’s disjointures and subjunctures against the smooth
city in machinic capitalism.

In this volume Raunig not only develops a conceptual ecology of concepts of joining and jointing, but also undertakes an experiment in
theoretical form. Semi-fictional interweaves with meticulously researched historical sources, mystical writings with letters from
friends, philosophical fragments with poetic ritornellos. More than a narrative about dissemblages from social surrounds, thing-worlds, and
ghost-worlds, the book itself is a dividual multiplicity in form and content, out of joint, in the joints, dissemblage.

Bio: Gerald Raunig is a philosopher and art theorist. He works at the Zürich University of the Arts, Zürich and the eipcp (European Institute
for Progressive Cultural Policies), Vienna. He is coeditor of the multilingual publishing platform Transversal Texts and the Austrian journal Kamion. He is the author of Art and Revolution and A Thousand Machines.
