Gerald Raunig’s new book unfolds the worlds of cognitive and creative labor
as new territories of existence and resistance. Based on a thorough
critique of the “mode of modulation” in which we constantly reform and
deform ourselves and the worlds around us, the book draws lines of
desertion into other, molecular forms of living and organizing.  In the
last years new social movements have been centering on the re-appropriation
of space and time. Here and now, the university as factory of knowledge
becomes a place of condensation, of assembly, and of re-appropriation of
space, and the industry of creativity turns into a plane of wild,
disobedient, non-subservient industriosity.

“In Factories Of Knowledge, Industries Of Creativity Gerald Raunig composes
a diagnosis of present times drawing a diagram of powers that combines at
least three levels of analysis: the contemporary political and social
movements from the coasts of the Mediterranean to the USA; a genealogy that
shows the tendencies, the origins, and drifts in the fields of knowledge
and cultural work; and finally, at the conceptual level, problems that have
traversed political philosophy for decades, if not centuries, such as the
question of the relationship of multitude and singularity or the radical
critique of representation.” (Roberto Nigro)
