// Zero, One, or Many Lands? // Uninstall Kant, Hack Deleuze with Bataille // Schizo-Death via Techno-Capital // Robo-despotism //

Nick Land’s accelerationism functioned as a line of flight, cutting through the sedimented and stifling Left and Right political discourses of the 90s and charting a cyber-capital escape route from all socio-political, psychological and biological forms of organisation.

What conceptual apparatus did Land use as a launch pad? What exactly are we supposed to be accelerating? How does Land’s writing function? and what is the link between Land and the contemporary Left Accelerationist moment?
