Depletion Design: A Glossary of Network Ecologies
Ed. Carolin Wiedemann & Soenke Zehle
Theory on Demand #8
Amsterdam: INC, 2012


We, or so we are told, are running out of time, of time to develop
alternatives to a new politics of emergency, as constant crisis has
exhausted the means of a politics of representation too slow for the
state of exception, too ignorant of the distribution of political
agency, too focused on the governability of financial architectures.
But new forms of individual and collective agency already emerge, as
we learn to live, love, work within the horizon of depletion, to ask
what it means to sustain ourselves, each other, again. Of these and
other knowledges so created, there can no longer be an encyclopedia; a
glossary, perhaps.
