Entrevista com Elizabeth Povinelli no site da revista “Society and Space“. Aqui fica uma pequena provocação:
Thus you are right that something like space or territoriality is crucial to what I am doing. In Economies of Abandonment I note that the biopolitical is not a space but a spacing—thus tense is internal to this spatializing function. And within this spacing new formations of existence may be incubated. But they are incubated at high risk. In the book I am currently working on space comes into play slightly differently. And here I return to Kathryn’s question—what is the formation of power that we are currently living in and through and what are its spatiotemporal apparatuses? Here I hope it becomes clear that it’s not Foucault’s conceptual apparatus—or Peirce’s or Spinoza or…—but rather a mode, or spirit, of inquiry, namely: What is this that is governing us, and governing is differentially?
