This talk tries to shed some light on Mark Fisher’s proposed idea of Acid
Communism as a possible means of overcoming Capitalist Realism and what has been
called “Left Melancholy” by Wendy Brown. It will try to establish the idea’s
relationship to consciousness raising groups and practices associated with 1960s
counterculture as well as the Situationist Internationale.
I will also try to give some examples of forerunners and practical
implementations of these ideas, e.g. in Afro-Futurism and second-wave feminism.
