Critique of capitalism as a critique of culture

The text is devoted to scientific and journalistic achievements of Marek “k-punk” Fisher. The author tries to show the originality of thought of the English theorist of culture and his contribution to the critical reflection on contemporary cultural phenomena. Fisher gained popularity in 2009 with the book Capitalist Realism: Is There No Alternative. He published in such magazines as The Guardian, The New Statesman, The Wire. In particular, he was interested in popular culture. The researcher and academic lecturer — with counter-cultural background — was often involved in defending the interests of the working class. The idea of the article is to familiarize the Polish reader with the concepts of Fisher, which are especially connected with the thought of Jacques Derrida.
