Affective Societies: Key Concepts (Cover)

Zink, Veronika – 2019

Due to their capacity to both relate and repel social bodies, affects play a vital role in the collectivization and singularization of bodies. The concept of affective communities gives weight to sensually perceptible mechanisms of social cohesion by concentrating on a specific form of the social: the community. While the classical model of community underlines the emotionally grounded solidity of communality, the concept of affective communities emphasizes the continuous process of associating and dissociating and, thus, serves as a paradigmatic expression of a pulsating sociality and as the modus operandi of contemporary affective societies.
