Considerations and consequences
Thomas Sutherland

‘[d]eterritorialisation, in general, is one of the central forces of the modern world’. Deleuzian philosophy, it must be noted, has had a significant impact upon the ubiquity of this concept of flow within the social sciences and particularly human geography. In the words of Boltanski and Chiapello (2007: xxiv), what Deleuze and Guattari offer is ‘an ontology containing only one tier or plane (the ‘plane of immanence’)’, which ‘knows only singularities or flows, the relationship between which assumes a reticular form and whose movements and relations are governed by

Territorialist political ecology in/ for the new climate regime
Camilla Perrone

problem in political ecology. Moreover, it is proposed from a territorialist perspective. This perspective develops around the political concept of territory, understood as a metabolic process that reassociates spatial and physical processes with the forms of social, cultural, and political mediation that determine them in the cycles of territorialisation, deterritorialisation, and

, universalisation, westernisation or deterritorialisation. It is argued that the first four perspectives cannot adequately capture the nature of contemporary globalisation because they reduce it to pre-existing processes. Scholte favours ‘deterritorialisation’ as an account of globalisation that emphasises ‘far-reaching change in the nature of social space’ (2000: 46).

visible (and, paradoxically, the most aesthetic) ones, namely the new walls. But this approach is also valid for the other types of borders, those that are opening up, and for which artistic intervention is often a way of transforming artefacts of passage and control into cultural heritage. Therefore, the link between art and politics can be analysed within the framework of the ‘hyper-territorialisation’ of contemporary borders; in a world marked by incessant processes of deterritorialisation and reterritorialisation suggesting a lability of landscapes, we paradoxically

A critique of (urban) political ecology
Erik Swyngedouw

uneven socio-ecological development. The continuous de-territorialisation of extractive matter re-territorialises as socio-ecologically metabolised commodities through the process of planetary urbanisation (Arboleda, 2016 ). Consider, for example, that China consumed in three years (2011–13) more concrete than the US used during the whole of the twentieth century (6.5 gigatons
