Since the publication in 1975 of Paul Virilio's BunkerArcheology, the range of Virilio's critical works and theirimpact is now clear within a variety of subjects. Makingastonishing interventions into art and architecture, geography,cultural studies, media, literature, aesthetics, and sociology, themomentous implications of which have yet to be entirely understood,Virilio is the cultural theorist for our troubled twenty-firstcentury.

Responding to this growing interdisciplinary interest,Virilio Now: Current Perspectives in Virilio Studiescomprises Sean Cubitt's critical overview of Virilio's oeuvre, animportant newly translated text by Virilio interrogating the impactof contemporary art, and eight other major original essays by notedscholars on the wide scope of Virilio's writings, inclusive of AdamSharr on Virilio and the architect Peter Zumthor's Bruder Klauschapel, and Nigel Thrift's crucial assessment of Virilio's Cityof Panic. Substantial coverage of Virilio's essential textssuch as The Information Bomb is presented alongside hishypermodern conjectures on television and speed, globalization,media, and representation. Navigating Virilio's 'accident of art',the 'aesthetics of disappearance', and widespread culturaldevastation, additional essays bring together considerations offinancial adversity, war, calamity, and the apocalypse. Dazzlingyet perceptive, these texts on the 'post-nuclear imagination',terror, and dread are simultaneously creative and theoreticalextrapolations from Virilio's 'scenic imagination' and companionessays to his most contemporary, highly original, and powerfulbooks such as The Original Accident and The University ofDisaster.

Review:

"John Armitage's Virilio Now brings together lively and provocative contemporary perspectives on Virilio's work. The editor's introduction and interview with Virilio provide an illuminating overview of this provocative and original thinker, while the articles are engaging and original, providing up-to-date takes on diverse and important themes engaged in Virilio's multifaceted works."
Douglas Kellner, UCLA

"John Armitage's Virilio Now, a masterfully edited collection of essays based on one of the most provocative critics of our time, engages, complements and even contests Paul Virilio's multifaceted work on technology, art, architecture, urban and visual studies in compelling and far-reaching ways. This book will be a valuable and an enduring point of reference."
Verena Andermatt Conley, Harvard University

"Paul Virilio is a complex and important thinker, difficult to categorize, and ranging creatively across the worlds of art, architecture, technology, and much more. John Armitage has succeeded in bringing together a group of contributors who do real justice to Virilio's work, with both critical enthusiasm and engaged and thoughtful critique."
Kevin Robins, Goldsmith's College, London
