Robin Mackay : Plotting Contingency

Robin Mackay

Robin Mackay gives an introduction to the way in which he and Reza Negarestani are developing Nick Land's model of 'geotrauma' as the basis for a 'universal history of contingency' which has a non-anthropocentric bias, but which begins with the plots carved out for and by humans on the surface of the planet. Robin Mackay is a philosopher and director of the UK arts organization Urbanomic, which promotes research activities addressing crucial issues in philosophy, science and their relation to contemporary art practice, aiming to engender interdisciplinary thinking and production.
