Para-Platforms: On the Spatial Politics of Right-Wing Populism
Library Shelf Location 06.POLI
Publication Date 2018

Right-wing populism is not new. Yet our current historical conjuncture presents emergent and extreme forms that demand critical inquiry. This is true at the level of the spatially imagined, the virtually performed, and the designed and physically built--as each in different ways is facilitating the unprecedented development of right-wing politics. In Europe and abroad, neo-Nazism, fundamentalism, and hate-based ideologies rooted in violent patriarchies have gained institutional acceptance and political sponsorship at a variety of scales. This reader considers new ways of moving through space and new patterns of occupying space, and investigates the implicit relationship between design and politics. Material is never neutral.
