Join theorists McKenzie Wark and Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi to discuss the future of critical theory and the place of the intellectual in the internet age.

In the digital age, the position of the public intellectual that has changed irrevocably.

What could replace these giants of thought? Who is the Sartre and De Beauvoir of the internet age?

McKenzie Wark’s new book General Intellects argues that we no longer have such singular figures, but there are, instead, general intellects whose writing could, if read collectively, explain our times.

Join Wark and one of the leading European theorists, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, to discuss the directions that critical theory will take in the years to come.
