“Prophecies of burial: speculative theory for the world in mourning ”
Every philosophy book, wrote Gilles Deleuze, must be akin to science-fiction. What is to become of theory in the wake of the Anthropocene? What to expect of current revolutionary movements – accelerationism, xenofeminism, eco-philosophy, speculative realism – in the face of inter-species necropolitics, subsumed under climate change, technological determinism and environmental lamentation? Perhaps, as Donna Haraway suggests, ours is the time of the Cthuluscene; or, perhaps, as Francois Laruelle claims, only the depth of quantic nights can produce future messiahs. In a ficto-critical gesture, this talk weaves a prophecy of apocalyptic philosophies attuned to the hollowness of empty oceans, plugged into the roots of cybernetic plants, and animated by the prospect of in-vitro meat. Building on current critical thought, it imagines theory for a world to come, a world always-already-in-mourning
