Pay Attention!

Pay Attention! AbstractThis introduction to “Solids and Flows: Architecture and Capitalism” provides a context to the articles assembled in this issue, and reflects on the implications of what can be perceived as a common approach. Drawing on Nancy Fraser’s “expanded conception of capitalism” combined with Isabelle Stengers’ advocacy for “resisting the coming barbarism,” we offer a framework for thinking architecture’s relationship to capitalism that goes beyond the spheres of property and market, and places emphasis on our capacity to move across the categories. It seems that in view of “the social institutionalisation” of capitalism, and confronted with the neoliberal market set up as “thinking machine,” there is no simple return to the analysis and strategies established in the past. Rather, it becomes a matter of “learning from now on” with an acute attention to detail of the various assemblages in which architecture now operates. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
