An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Aug calls non-space results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Aug uses the concept of supermodernity to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay he seeks to establish an intellectual armature for an anthropology of supermodernity.
