Infused with a contagious enthusiasm and optimism that never ignores the grim reality of our present, Poetry from the Future is a radical call for action. The perfect medicine for left-wing melancholia.--Alfonso Cuaron
Ambiguous histories, temporal framings that do not follow standard epochs, unexpected combinations of events, are just some of the surprises and unsettlements that Srecko Horvat gives us in this radically original book.--Saskia Sassen, author of EXPULSIONS These captivating reflections lead us on a journey, painful and inspiring, from the first moments of liberation of Europe from fascist jackboots to the resistance taking form today to the stultifying current occupation of capitalist cultural hegemony and internalized controls. The culmination is a call to project the spirit of this past struggle into the future in order to create a new nonaligned movement against capital - a compelling vision, an urgent necessity, and not beyond reach.--Noam Chomsky A charismatic Croatian philosopher--Oliver Stone One of the most exciting voices of his generation--Das Freitag Thank fuck Horvat has taken it upon himself to create new worlds--VICE The young Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat is just as much a doer as a thinker.
