EDC Book Club: Against the Vortex by Anthony Galluzzo

April 30 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Join the EDC Book Club later this month for a discussion of Anthony Galluzzo’s new book, Against the Vortex: Zardoz and Degrowth Utopias in the Seventies and Today. Author Anthony Galluzzo will be joining us for the discussion of this short and intriguing book, together with EDC curators Mike Degani and Anand Pandian.

“Alongside scientific knowledge and collective effort, building a degrowth ecological society will require a different set of stories and myths than the big and fast Promethean fables we’re accustomed to. Using Boorman’s Zardoz as a tool, Against The Vortex unearths the artistic and intellectual output of a decelerationist 1970s, with an eye toward imagining a very different sort of future.”
