Dread: The Dizziness Of Freedom


Dread: The Dizziness of Freedom is the latest publication in Valiz's Antennae Series, which aims to discuss new phenomena or ideas pertaining to the arts. The title is from a proposition Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard made in 1844 that associated dread with the 'dizziness of freedom'. Edited by Juha van't Zelfde, the book is a peripheral exploration of dread and considers its benefit to the human consciousness. It features contributions from Timo Arnall, James Bridle, Simon Critchley, Adam Greenfield, Johan Grimonprez, Vinay Gupta, Ben Hammersley, Thomas Hirschhorn, Xander Karskens, Metahaven, China Miéville, Kevin Slavin, Superflux, and Juha van ’t Zelfde.
