Editorial Reviews

Review

"John Armitage's Virilio Now brings together lively and provocative contemporary perspectives on Virilio's work. The editor's introduction and interview with Virilio provide an illuminating overview of this provocative and original thinker, while the articles are engaging and original, providing up-to-date takes on diverse and important themes engaged in Virilio's multifaceted works."
Douglas Kellner, UCLA

"John Armitage's Virilio Now, a masterfully edited collection of essays based on one of the most provocative critics of our time, engages, complements and even contests Paul Virilio's multifaceted work on technology, art, architecture, urban and visual studies in compelling and far-reaching ways. This book will be a valuable and an enduring point of reference."
Verena Andermatt Conley, Harvard University

"Paul Virilio is a complex and important thinker, difficult to categorize, and ranging creatively across the worlds of art, architecture, technology, and much more. John Armitage has succeeded in bringing together a group of contributors who do real justice to Virilio's work, with both critical enthusiasm and engaged and thoughtful critique."
Kevin Robins, Goldsmith's College, London

From the Back Cover

Since the publication in 1975 of Paul Virilio's Bunker Archeology, the range of Virilio's critical works and their impact is now clear within a variety of subjects. Making astonishing interventions into art and architecture, geography, cultural studies, media, literature, aesthetics, and sociology, the momentous implications of which have yet to be entirely understood, Virilio is the cultural theorist for our troubled twenty-first century.

Responding to this growing interdisciplinary interest, Virilio Now: Current Perspectives in Virilio Studies comprises Sean Cubitt's critical overview of Virilio's oeuvre, an important newly translated text by Virilio interrogating the impact of contemporary art, and eight other major original essays by noted scholars on the wide scope of Virilio's writings, inclusive of Adam Sharr on Virilio and the architect Peter Zumthor's Bruder Klaus chapel, and Nigel Thrift's crucial assessment of Virilio's City of Panic. Substantial coverage of Virilio's essential texts such as The Information Bomb is presented alongside his hypermodern conjectures on television and speed, globalization, media, and representation. Navigating Virilio's 'accident of art', the 'aesthetics of disappearance', and widespread cultural devastation, additional essays bring together considerations of financial adversity, war, calamity, and the apocalypse. Dazzling yet perceptive, these texts on the 'post-nuclear imagination', terror, and dread are simultaneously creative and theoretical extrapolations from Virilio's 'scenic imagination' and companion essays to his most contemporary, highly original, and powerful books such as The Original Accident and The University of Disaster. Clearly introduced by the editor, Virilio Now is the preeminent single-volume on Virilio's work and world available today.
