After the Future (Kobo eBook)
After decades of relative unknown in the United States, interest in Bifo's work spiked last year with the publication of several of his older works in translation.
Though his work is now becoming more widely available in English, this is the first of Bifo's books aimed at an American activist audience. Whereas his other work in English is largely philosophical, After the Future is largely pragmatic and programmatic, and based in Bifo's years of experience as a media activist in Italy.
As the battle to free the airwaves rages in the FCC, interest in radio activism and pirate radio continues to swell. As one of the founders of Radio Alice, one of the most famous pirate radio stations of all times, Bifo is well-known already to many folks who are active in media advocacy circles. After the Future discusses his experiences with Radio Alice explicitly.
Italian Autonomia thinkers like Antonio Negri, Georgio Agamben, and Paolo Virno continue to interest American theoretical audiences. Bifo is one of the most-important, but least-well known members of the Italian autonomist movement.
