Lyotard or Marx? The Evil Legacy of ‘Libidinal Economy’

Acid Horizon Patrons

Acid Horizon hosts Cooper and Taylor of Machinic Unconscious Happy Hour to discuss Jean-François Lyotard’s Libidinal Economy, the infamous forceful poetic intervention which lambasted the French communism of the 1970s and the legacy of Marxism itself. This deep dive emerges out of Zer0’s postcapitalist desire reading group which covers the incomplete final lecture series of Mark Fisher. Lyotard was an important mediator in Fisher’s work and a pivotal figure in the accelerationist politics more broadly.
