Electronic Civil Disobedience continues where The Electronic Disturbance leaves off, suggesting strategies of resistance to nomadic power, and investigating tactics of nonrationality to get at the core of autonomy. Fusing a situationist-influenced concept of contestational art, an understanding of the parallel nature of cultural and political
action borrowed from Gramsci, and a hacker’s understanding of how new technology functions, Electronic Civil Disobedience refines an understanding of the nature of power and resistance in the information age.
“Forget the nostalgia for old-school political resistance! Here is a smart guide for activism in the post-symbolic age of nomadic capital and power. CAE’s brilliant analysis of our current cyberlandscape is grounded in a shockingly mystical radicality.” — Miwon Kwon (editor, DOCUMENTS)
