Postanarchism and space: Revolutionary fantasies and autonomous zones

By Saul Newman

Abstract

In this paper, I call for a re-consideration of anarchism and its alternative ways of conceptualising\ud spaces for radical politics. Here I apply a Lacanian analysis of the social imaginary to explore the utopian fantasies and desires that underpin social spaces, discourses and practices – including planning, and revolutionary politics. I will go on to develop – via Castoriadis and others – a distinctly post-anarchist conception of political space based around the project of autonomy and the re-situation of the political space outside the state. This will have direct consequences for an alternative conception of planning practice and theory
