DELUSIVE SPACES -Eric Kluitenberg takes a critical position that retains a utopian potential for emerging media cultures. The book investigates the archeology of media and machine, mapping the different methods and metaphors that speak about technology. Returning to the present, Kluitenberg discusses the cultural use of new media in an age of post-governmental politics. Delusive Spaces concludes with the impossibility of representation.

THE ARCHITECTURAL UNCANNY presents an engaging and original series of meditations on issues and figures that are at the heart of the most pressing debates surrounding architecture today.
