A DELC-CRITIQUE seminar with Dario Gentili on his latest book, The Age of Precarity: Endless Crisis as an Art of Government (Verso, 2021). Gentili explores the question: if crisis is the norm, how do we demand change? He identifies precariousness as the form of life that characterises crisis understood as an art of government, and asks, if crisis is an art of government, how can we create political alternatives?
