Moving across militant, aesthetic and poetic registers these texts consider what resistance might look like in the age of human capital, where all dimensions of the self are infiltrated and conscripted by capital in its pursuit of value. Their answer is the human strike - a strike against the demands on the self imposed by power - in the interest of changing ourselves, becoming who we want to become. This strike has been happening all along, throughout history, but has today reached a peak of political consciousness. This book was commissioned to accompany the Post-Media Labs The Subsumption of Sociality research theme. Published by Mute Books and Post-Media Lab
