How To Disappear: Notes on Invisibility in a Time of Transparency

Autor Akiko Busch
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 13 feb 2020
In our increasingly networked and image-saturated lives, the notion of disappearing has never been both more enchanting and yet fanciful. The pressure to be public comes not just from our peers, but vast and pervasive technology companies, which want to profit from patterns in our behaviour. Busch sets out to explore her own uneasiness with this arrangement, and what she senses is a widespread desire for a less scrutinised way of life in this shimmering collage of poetry, cinema, memoir, myth, and much more.
