This article retrieves the anti-imperialist thrust of the work of Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Jacques Lacan, in search of a critical method capable of understanding, explaining and challenging the contemporary phenomenon of “non-governmental” micro-imperialism. It argues that an attentive reading that juxtaposes portraits, characters and physiognomies as they appear in their work may provide strong theoretical ground and seminal insights into the operational principles and paradigmatic depressions germane to the mental apparatus and occupational structure of biopolitical micro-imperialism.
