The reticular society

In this talk, Ian Alan Paul will present excerpts from their forthcoming book, The Reticular Society, an anti-capitalist critique of the networked society. Within the framework of an analytical trajectory that includes the relationships between connected life and separate life, individual life and computer life, reticulated life, reticulated death and the geometric repression of social uprisings, Paul will introduce some modes of creative insurrection and destituent hacking that are immanent from relationships in the network. The talk will be in English and will be followed by a conversation between the author and Jara Rocha that will address the crossovers between Paul’s work and the research project LaaS (Life as a Service) being carried out by Rocha in Hangar/La Virreina during 2023.
