UNLOCKED /183/ Acid Bunga Bunga ft. Mike Watson

On memes and the counter-culture.
 
Theorist and curator Mike Watson advances the argument for "acid leftism". What is this, and why do we need a new counter-culture? Is contemporary leftism lacking a utopian imaginary?
 
Plus: slow memes and fast memes; the democratisation of art and media; and generations: which ones became conservative, which might not?

  • (01:02:00) - 'Afterparty' discussion on what a counter-culture might look like today
