The Uprising: On Poetry and Finance

by: Franco Bifo Berardi

Publisher: Semiotext(e) (2012)


This latest work is clear and surprisingly optimistic (for Bifo). He outlines the manifestations of semiocapital in the global finance system and points toward paths of escape (following Guattari's singularization) through language. Almost a must read.
