A few days ago, I was asked to write a response to Rory Rowan for the e-flux superconversation series. Both pieces have materialised on the e-flux site this morning:
Rory: "Extinction as Usual? Geo-social Futures and Left Optimism"
Me: "More than Two Cities: Extinction | Optimism | Austerity | Possibility"
This was put together in a bit of a hurry but it was fun to write (sometimes it helps to not over-think things). I'm delighted to have made this small contribution to the series, in any case. Among the many excellent contributions, I can particularly recommend:
Lesley Green: "The Changing of the Gods of Reason: Cecil John Rhodes, Karoo Fracking, and the Decolonizing of the Anthropocene"
Déborah Danowski and Eduardo Viveiros de Castro: "Is there any world to come?"
