Bunker Archaeology by Paul Virilio


By Paul Virilio

Out of print for nearly a decade we're delighted to deliver again certainly one of our such a lot asked hard-to-find titles—philosopher and cultural theorist Paul Virilio's Bunker Archeology. In 1994 we released the 1st English-language translation of the vintage French variation of 1975 which followed an exhibition of Virilio's pictures on the Centre Pompidou. In Bunker Archeology urbanist Paul Virilio turns his attention—and camera—to the ominous but unusually compelling German bunkers that lie deserted alongside the coast of France. those ghostly reminders of destruction and oppression brought on Virilio to think about the character of battle and lifestyles in terms of either global warfare II and modern occasions. Virilio discusses fortresses and armed forces area more often than not in addition to the bunkers themselves together with an exam of the function of Albert Speer Hitler's architect within the upward push of the 3rd Reich.
