SEBASTIAN ROSSI, Luis. Assemblages in societies of control. Cult.-hombre-soc. [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.1, pp.177-206. ISSN 0716-1557.

This paper approaches the main thesis behind Deleuze and Guattari´s theory about the rise of social formations of control and their assemblages [agencements]. To achieve such aim, three theses on mutation of contemporary capitalism will be presented. Firstly, this study focuses on the transformations of power relations and knowledge formation. Secondly, attention is turned to understanding the changes in modes of subjectivation (from social subjection to machinic enslavement). Thirdly, the paper will explore the new regimes of images and signs of our contemporary societies. However, none of these transformations can be understood, for deleuzoguattarian critical social theory, without reference to the concrete assemblages [agencements] in which they take place. For this reason, on the one hand, this article will analyze some examples of ubiquitous computations that illustrate the dimensions of the new modulation strategies (codification) of contemporary power. On the other hand, this study will explore the mass media assemblages that assure new forms of reterritorialization by artificial means (territorialization) and, finally, it will focus on the possible lines of flight of social formation of control.

Palabras clave : Deleuzoguattarian theory; societies of control; assemblages of ubiquitous computations and mass media assemblages.
