As the serial disasters of capitalism's current crisis--economic, political, environmental--continue to batter the world, Black Box: A Record of the Catastrophe is a device for recording, analyzing, and transmitting events as they happen. But it offers neither dire predictions nor false hopes. Instead, it embraces the mystery of what might transpire. The second volume brings together reports from North African refugee camps in Europe; thinkers ruminating on Walter Benjamin while walking the streets of Palestine; a freezing night in Tucson, Arizona; a London cityscape that reflects the architectural power of finance capitalism; meetings of French Maoists in the 1960s; a film screening that never happened; and much more. Contributors to Black Box include Mott Green, Byung-Chul Han, Isabella Gresser, Micaela Sahhar, Stuart Smithers, Miranda Mellis, Jonathan Stafford, Moniro Ravanipour, Eirik Steinhoff, Peter Wieben, Gunter Gassner, Matt Longabucco, Sam Dolbear, Oriel Mar a Siu, Bhanu Kapil, Jacob Bard-Rosenberg, Maged Zaher, Neve, Roberto Harrison, Eske Mollgaard, Alejandro de Acosta, Blake Shaw, Ron Haas, William Kupinse, Luis Berr os-Negr n, Michael Paninski, Renee Simms, Andrea Lawlor, Teju Cole, and Sarah Rupp.
