24/7 Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep

Author(s): CRARY JONATHAN

Cultural Studies

24/7 explores some of the ruinous consequences of the expanding, non-stop processes of twenty-first-century capitalism. The marketplace now operates twenty-four hours of every day and demands our constant activity, eroding forms of community, political expression, and the fabric of everyday life.Jonathan Crary examines the way this interminable non-time blurs any separation between an intensified, ubiquitous consumerism and the strategies of control and surveillance. He argues that human sleep and dreaming provide exemplary, if elusive, models for other thresholds at which society might defend or protect itself.
