Sandra Lucbert


Portrait of Sandra Lucbert

Sandra Lucbert is an author. Three of her latest books focus on financialized capitalism as an apparatus of discursive, normative and impulsive enrolment.  La Toile  (The Canvas), published by  Gallimard, uses the codes of the epistolary novel to show how mass digitalization creates a political and economic organization by being directly connected to bodies. Personne ne sort les fusils (Don’t take out Your Guns) published by Le Seuil et Le Ministère des contes publics  (The Ministry of Public Accounts) published by Le Seuil, can be described as works of literary intervention: the former based on the France Télécom trial and the latter based on a special edition of the French  news program C dans l’air  focused on the public debt. In their own way, these hybrid forms propose to dismantle the mechanisms by which the structures of deregulated finance destroy an entire social order via the acceptance of certain linguistic formulations.
