Bunker Archaeology by Paul Virilio

By Paul Virilio

Out of print for nearly a decade we're delighted to deliver again one among our so much 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 observed an exhibition of Virilio's images 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 warfare and lifestyles on the subject of either global conflict II and modern occasions. Virilio discusses fortresses and army house ordinarily 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.
