Abstract:

This article considers racism not as an unfortunate encrustation on the body of liberal democracy but rather as an essential component in the realisation and exercise of its biopolitics. Rendering historically explicit the racialising biopowers disseminated in the formation of Occidental modernity, the unsuspected political and cultural centrality of racism, not simply as a colonial phenomenon, but rather as a metropolitan institution central to the making of the modern public sphere, is considered in its contemporary ramifications.
