Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution

Benjamin H. Bratton

Equal parts Borges, Burroughs, Baudrillard and Black Ops, “Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution” charts a treacherous landscape filled with paranoid master plans, failed schemes and dubious histories.
Benjamin H. Bratton’s kaleidoscopic theory-fiction links the utopian fantasies of political violence with the equally utopian programs of security and control. Both rely on all manner of doubles, models, gimmicks, ruses, prototypes and shock-and-awe campaigns to realize their propagandas of the deed, threat and image. Blurring reality and delusion, they collaborate on a literally psychotic politics of architecture.
