Deleuze and the City Paperback / softback
Edited by Helen Frichot, Catharina Gabrielsson, Jonathan Metzger
The city as complex compound of cultural and natural forces and flows is characterised in multifarious and contradictory ways.
A city is never just a transforming built environment of a particular scale or global reputation, but located, specific, differentiated and impossible to grasp in all its complexity.
The 16 contributors to this collection re-deploy conceptual tools of Deleuze and Guattari, and demonstrate in many instances how these tools can be altered and revised to meet the problematic urban fields in question.
This also means calling on the legacy of Deleuze and Guattari by way of those thinkers and practitioners who follow after, and who have augmented and altered their project.
Deleuze and the City asks what a city can do, how its human and non-human relations can be made sufficiently durable, how we can make ourselves worthy of our encounters in the city, how we might expand and contract its influence, and participate in the formation of affirmative rather than destructive subjective, social and environmental ecologies.
