Building on fire, Tottenham riots

Contemporary discussions of the crisis of global capitalism depict the city as a locus of particular vulnerability; the centre of a pattern of intersecting and mutually reinforcing calamities. London’s Burning aims to capture what is seen as the emergence of a new historical consciousness of crisis, and offer a collective critical reflection on its workings. The discussion is the result of a group of researchers forming a creative and constructive dialogue between disciplines, in what has recently been described as a ‘politics of microspection’.

Led by Florian Mussgnug, the contributors will deliberately adopt the standpoint of the local, the habitat, and explore how the sites of our daily life in London – our private and shared spaces, images, stories – can point the way to a new experience of the planet.
