In October 2022 we published the Spanish translation of Lukáš Likavčan’s Introduction to Comparative Planetology. The text analyzes visual cultures of Earth imagery from the perspective of the geopolitics of the climate crisis. It compares different “figures” of the planet — Planetary, Global, Terrestrial, Earth-without-us, and Phantom Earth — and assesses their geopolitical implications.
In times of advancing privatisation and technologisation of prisons a call for a new abolitinism for the 21st century emerges: let’s abolish the prisons. Angela Y. Davis examines the roots of today’s prison-industrial complex in the USA, its racism and sexism, and suggests possible alternatives to incarceration.
Original title: Are Prisons Obsolete?
