THE SPACE OF AGONISM. Markus Miessen and Chantal Mouffe. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2012. Critical Spatial Practice, 2. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 152 pp. with 23 col. ills. 15 x 11 cm. ISBN 9783943365412 In English.
Publisher's description: The political theory of agonism emphasizes potentially progressive outcomes for political conflict; thinking in terms of "demoicracy" -- a union that acknowledges and makes room for deeply ingrained societal divisions -- this book proposes new approaches to countering and responding to the globalizing thrust of neo-liberalism. The second volume in the Critical Spatial Practice series, it presents a selection of conversations between Markus Miessen and political philosopher Chantal Mouffe. These dialogues attempt to unpack current political dilemmas through consensus-driven formats of political decision-making, alternately driven by Miessen's specific concerns regarding conflict-based forms of participation as an alternative (spatial) practice in democratic systems and Mouffe's understanding and theory of a "conflictual consensus." An artist project by Rabih Mroue accompanies the text.
