Κενό Δίκτυο: Lockdown μέρος 2ο- Μεταξύ γελοιότητας και δυστοπίας

«Εν όψει της συγκεκριμένης δυνατότητας της ουτοπίας, η διαλεκτική είναι η οντολογία της λάθος κατάστασης πραγμάτων». Theodor W. Adorno, Αρνητική Διαλεκτική Το κείμενο θα μπορούσε να ξεκινήσει με μία άλλη (ακόμα) πιο κλισέ φράση, βγαλμένη από τη δεξαμενή του διαλεκτικού λόγου· το ευφυολόγημα του Μαρξ ότι αυτό που την πρώτη φορά συμβαίνει σαν τραγωδία τη δεύτερη επαναλαμβάνεται σαν φάρσα. Δεν υπάρχει όντως κάτι βαθιά γελοίο σε ένα «lockdown» που κλείνει…

SOS Kurdish Revolution Needs Us and We Need the Kurdish Revolution

“This US decision to let Erdogan invade Syria will have disastrous consequences not only for the Kurds but for the entire international community. They authorize the Turkish state to invade a peaceful, secure and democratic area that has driven out all jihadist terrorists at the cost of the lives of 12,000 martyrs. They now leave the Kurds at the mercy of the Turkish army and its jihadist allies. We will…

“Η εποχή είναι ντεκαυλέ. Και δεν μιλάμε για το σεξ” – Έφη Αλεβίζου

Η ντεκαυλέ εποχή έχει έρθει να ντύσει τα ντεκολτέ, να σιδερώσει τους τρόπους, να καλύψει τα ρωμαϊκά γυμνά αγάλματα, να ακονίσει την απορριπτική διάθεση. Ένας χλωμός ήλιος ξεπροβάλλει πίσω από τη λέξη ντεκαυλέ, η οποία ριμάρει με το ντεφορμέ και το ντεπασέ και όλους τους επιθετικούς προσδιορισμούς αρνητικής χροιάς. Το ερωτικό ξενέρωμα είναι εδώ και είναι παντού. Απλώνεται σαν τον μύκητα στο κεφίρ. Σαν το μέλι στην κερήθρα. Επιπλέει στον…

“Beyond the Impossible” by Raoul Vaneigem 2012

“To deny society, one must attack its language.” – Guy Debord. The impossible is a closed universe. Nevertheless, we possess the key to it and, as we’ve suspected for millennia, its door opens on a field of infinite possibilities. More than ever, this field belongs to us, to explore and cultivate. The key is neither magic nor symbolic. The ancient Greeks called it “poetry,” from the verb poiein, to construct,…

March 4 // Occupy California! Fight for Free Public Education!

Inside a commandeered university building, we gathered, we spoke, and we conspired. Outside the police waited, they observed, they plotted. They were in no way prepared for the wave that came crashing down, and neither were we. While there seems to be endless conversation on the violence of smashing windows and the damage to the movement done by spontaneous action, there is a notable absence of discussion of the violence…
