Feral Federation

Feral Federation reveals emerging geographies of a growing constellation of contested urban enclaves governed by non-state actors, operating beyond the control of nation-states. Military doctrine is shifting to target such cities as prime loci of impending geostrategic conflicts, recognizing the new forms of soft power that autonomous agents exploit in urban constellations outside the rule of law. The database highlights and questions the pervasiveness of this increasingly common ‘securocratic’, managerial distinction, which casts a shared sense of immediate threat in a growing list of otherwise diverse and geographically distant cities. The Feral Federation offers a collection of urban landscapes, and the attendant technologies of occupation, protest, and agonistic conflict within the feral designees, as a counterpoint to the flattening gaze of the security state.
