"Though encaged within cognitive capitalism, we call for an epistemic acceleration. The symposium convenes to refresh the cartography of the keywords employed in the last centuries to describe economy and the political response to it: development, progress, growth, accumulation, peak, degrowth, revolution, speculation, entropy, singularity, sustainability and so on. Today it is time to anticipate and accelerate, for sure, time for anastrophism and not catastrophism."
The event, which takes place in Berlin on 14 December of this year, features a host of names familiar to conversations on accelerationism - Ray Brassier, Josephine Berry Slater, Benjamin Noys, Elisabeth von Samsonow, Srnicek and Williams. Participation is free for those able to attend but the conference organisers require an RSVP via Facebook. With almost 300 registered, Accelerationism is bound to be a highly populated event.
