“It is time to take back value.” New Open Access Text by Brian Massumi

99 Theses on the Revaluation of Value

A Postcapitalist Manifesto

“It is time to take back value. For many, value has long been dismissed as a concept so thoroughly compromised, so soaked in normative strictures and stained by complicity with capitalist power, as to be unredeemable. This has only abandoned value to purveyors of normativity and apologists of economic oppression. Value is too valuable to be left in those hands.”
