A new form of extractivism defines life in the 21st Century. It is one that reaches into the furthest corners of the biosphere and the deepest layers of human cognitive and affective being: The stack that underpins contemporary technological systems goes well beyond data modeling, hardware, servers, and networks. Today’s full stack reaches into capital, labor, and nature while demanding an enormous amount from each. Vladan Joler’s New Extractivism gathers different concepts and images of this ‘new extractivism’ together. They add up to a blueprint—for a machine-like superstructure; a super allegory that encompasses the whole world.
