20 Theses on the Subversion of the Metropolis

20 Theses on the Subversion of the Metropolis

This provocative text from Europe looks at “the Metropolis”—defining it and engaging with it critically—to discuss new forms of resistance and “forms of life”. It explores sabotage, insurrection, and what the authors describe as “the biopolitical strike” as weapons that can be used in this era. It offers important points for discussion and for developing an understanding of how capitalism and resistance function in the modern era.

Excerpt

The metropolitan architectures of autonomy are all horizontal. As such, they adhere to the form-of-organization in all of their constitutive political stances and vice versa. Those of power, in every form and everywhere it is present, are all vertical and that is how they separate individuals from the Common. These architectures are to be deserted, surrounded, neutralized and, when it is possible, attacked and destroyed.The metropolitan architectures of autonomy are all horizontal.
