Join a panel of theorists discussing data and capitalism

In her radical new book Capital Is Dead, writer McKenzie Wark explores our data-obsessed society. This panel discussion will reflect on current battles to own and control information, and modes of resistance and change for the future. Wark will be joined in conversation by writer and publisher Huw Lemmey.

Following the event, Wark will sign copies of Capital Is Dead.

In association with Verso.
