Spoonbill welcomes the one and only McKenzie Wark and his newest book,Molecular Red, Theory for The Anthropocene (Verso, 2015). The author will engage in conversation with Janani Balasubramanian, queer South Asian artivist-techie, and one-half of the spoken word duo DarkMatter. MONDAY EVENING MAY 4, 7PM. Come early, seating is limited. Spoonbill is located at 218 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 718-387-7322.

Following the acclaimed titles The Beach Beneath the Street and The Spectacle of Disintegration, McKenzie Wark—media theorist, philosopher and accelerationist anti-hero—returns with Molecular Red, an earthy mix of figures as unexpected and diverse as Alexander Bogdanov, Andrey Platonov, Donna Haraway and Kim Stanley Robinson. Braiding strands of heretical Russian Marxism, the labor point of view, feminist cyborgology, science fiction and low theory together, Wark shows how these collective works have the power to change life in an age of ecological crisis.

 McKenzie Wark is the author of A Hacker Manifesto, Gamer Theory, The Beach Beneath the Street and The Spectacle of Disintegration, among other books. He is a professor of Media and Culture at The New School for Social Reseach and Eugene Lange College in New York City.
