McKenzie Wark: "Utopian Realism"


#1

“My proposition is: all utopias come true. Interesting ones also have something new to say about their conditions of realization: what can it mean that this describes an actual world? Utopia is in this special sense the most realist genre. It can treat in a formal way the questions of what the real not only could be, but what the real actually is.”
