Night School: The Space of Critical Thinking

Date Published:
July 14, 2013

“With the advent of modernity time has vanished from social space. It is recorded solely on measuring-instruments, on clocks, that are isolated and functionally specialized as this time itself. Lived time loses its form and its social interest — with the exception, that is, of time spent working. Economic space subordinates time to itself; political space expels it as threatening and dangerous (to power). The primacy of the economic and above all of the political implies the supremacy of space over time.” Heady stuff on this week with French theorist, Henri Lefebvre, and his concept of space.
