Editorial Reviews


A philosophical-autobiographical laboratory, this book tests ways of thinking and writing beyond run-of-the-mill academic talk. Avanessian doesn't visit the library; he flies to Miami and goes swimming. Moving between the beach and his desk, he pens seventeen philosophical diary entries in which the hot topics of the day are tackled associatively and with tremendous precision: Trump, big data, capitalism, surveillance, immigration, Facebook, Twitter, etc.—Georg Dickmann, Spike

Avanessian's reflections, somewhere between diary and soliloquy, essay and travelogue, always take their starting point from the concrete, the phenomenological—for example, the flickering screens in the airplane cabin or the social networks that are first to appear on your computer screen in the morning. Digital profiles and algorithms raise one of the book's defining themes on the first day: our temporality. In the 'geological science fiction' of Miami, the time complex finds its place.

Tom Wohlfarth, Der Freitag

Avanessian has coined the time-philosophical metaphor of a future that is now 'from the future.' Not only preemptive personalization, but also preemptive policing, preemptive war as well as the war on terror, and the preemptive operations of the financial markets shape our future by anticipating it. And not only has the future largely fallen into the hands of reactionary political agendas and particular economic interests, but as the recursive and poetic character of these players' actions is passed off as the prognosis of a predestined future, our consciousness is clouded against a real existing future openness. The future has been 'automated' and thus distorted.

The political impulse of Miamification is to insist again and again on the recursive and poetic character of the future; to wrest ourselves of the present deterioration of twitter trances and live logs; and to take up the fight for the future in the future, that is, in the mode of preemption.”

Daniel Falb, Textem
