Michel Feher interviewed by Ràdio Web MACBA.

Michel Feher (born 1956) is a Belgian philosopher and cultural theorist who writes in English and French. He is the founding editor of Zone Books[1] and the co-founder and president of Cette France-là, Paris, a monitoring group on French immigration policy.[2] Feher writes for a number of outlets and has a semi-regular blog with the French journal Mediapart.[3] He has held the positions of Professor and Visiting Lecturer at various universities, including École Nationale Supérieure in Paris,[4] the University of California, Berkeley, and most recently, Goldsmiths, University of London.[5]

Feher has been called "one of the most insightful observers of financialized capitalism writing today."[6]

Together with Wendy Brown, Michel Feher is co-editor of Zone Books' series Near Futures.[7] In 2016, Feher co-edited "Europe at a Crossroads" with William Callison, Milad Odabaei and Aurélie Windels, the first issue of Near Futures Online, the digital companion to Zone’s Near Futures series.[8]
