Out of print for nearly a decade we're extremely joyful to convey again certainly one of our so much asked hard-to-find titles—philosopher and cultural theorist Paul Virilio's Bunker Archeology. In 1994 we released the 1st English-language translation of the vintage French variation of 1975 which followed an exhibition of Virilio's photos on the Centre Pompidou. In Bunker Archeology urbanist Paul Virilio turns his attention—and camera—to the ominous but surprisingly compelling German bunkers that lie deserted alongside the coast of France. those ghostly reminders of destruction and oppression brought on Virilio to think about the character of conflict and life when it comes to either international battle II and modern instances. Virilio discusses fortresses and army house quite often in addition to the bunkers themselves together with an exam of the position of Albert Speer Hitler's architect within the upward push of the 3rd Reich.
