City Bodies: Undead or Alive? Jan Verwoert

“Memory, not built in stone, but incorporated in the bodies of all who live the city, generates an enormous reservoir of power. Those demonized as witches, possessed or hysteric knew (and know) how to tap the power-grid of the urban unreal and, for this reason, were burned or hospitalized. Zombies travel the grid, guided by the flows of urban energy and their hunger for consuming life. What biopolitical histories and lines of flight can we extrapolate from these ciphers of embodied urban power?”
