Psychopolitics, Celebrity Culture, and Live Regime in the Trump Era
The aim of this article is to critically inquire into the influence that cultural devices have on reprogramming capitalistic subjectivity in its sensitive dimension and the importance of pop culture in shaping this hyper-mediated, glocal reality. The author analyzes the connections linking digital psychopolitics, celebrity culture, and the live regime as a discursive, material, economic, and epistemic conglomerate that reprograms our sensitivity by producing aestheticized realities, propagated by online television series.
