Edmund Berger :: Underground Streams. A Micro-History of Hyperstition and Esoteric Resistance (Rizosfera/The Strong of the Future, SF008.eng, 2017) - Free Download E.book, License by Creative Commons 4.0

It is with great pleasure that we republish this micro-history essay by Edmund Berger written in 2014 for the accelerationist reader Dark Glamour. For various reasons (turnover of editors and curators) the essay has never been published and there- fore we think it deserves to be presented in its rst form. By the end of 2017 a new version of the same essay will be completely rewritten by Edmund Berger and published for the project Dark Glamour. It will be a two volume collection of essays with Amy Ireland (exponent of the xeno-feminist collective Laboria Cuboniks), Tony Yanick, and Tim Matts as editors. «Underground Streams» (2014) has been written a year before the classic Grungy Accelerationism (2015) and it represents the essay where Edmund Berger faces with the first accelerationist thought (Land and CCRU) and the second one (Srnicek and Williams) that he defines Neo-Accelerationism. What we wish to underline in this foreword is the reconfirmation of Berger’s ability to deeply grasp the meaning of the «Underground Streams» that characterized XX century «hyperstitional» thought and to clearly define the perimeter of hy- perstitional area and the contiguous esoteric resistance. Here lies the trait d’union between Underground Streams and Grungy Accelerationism...
