Disruption – Ben Harper (2018)

History/Theory, Theory

Ben Harper weaves together Weil, Agamben, and Badiou’s thought to discuss disruption in the Age of Trump. Interesting take on use of disruption by the right and its capture by the status quo.

What emerges from considering Weil, Agamben, and Badiou, is how disruption—far from inaugurating any novelty or instability—remains internal to the overarching workings of force, sovereignty, and the dominant structure.
