Reading Room Sessions: “The Future isn’t Working”

Dear all, join us for a reading group session at Rupert’s Reading Room this coming Monday Feb 8 at 5pm. We will discuss two chapters from Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams’ Inventing the Future: “The Future isn’t working” and “Post-work imaginaries.”

Inventing the Future is a bold new manifesto for life after capitalism. Against the confused understanding of our high-tech world by both the right and the left, this book claims that the emancipatory and future-oriented possibilities of our society can be reclaimed. Instead of running from a complex future, Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams demand a postcapitalist economy capable of advancing standards, liberating humanity from work and developing technologies that expand our freedoms. More about the book and its main themes here and here.

Readings selected by Adomas Narkevičius.
