MCKENZIE 4-3 copy.jpg

McKenzie Wark is a writer and scholar of media theory, critical theory, and cultural studies at the New School for Social Research in New York. Among her works are "A Hacker Manifesto," "Gamer Theory," and "Molecular Red."


Her latest work, "Raving," offers an intimate and collective portrait of the trans and queer rave scene in New York, exploring rave as addiction, ritual, performance, and act of resistance. Through a narrative that oscillates between autofiction and autotheory, Wark captures the essence of rave through smoke, lights, drugs, sex, and pounding music, identifying in this chaos an aesthetic and a politics, a way to dance among the ruins of collapsing capitalism.
