Precarisation is one of the central concepts of Lorey's research and writing. In this article she aims at explaining the term further dissecting three dimensions of the precarious: precariousness, precarity, and governmental precarization. Her theoretical contribution is of great importance for understanding the world of "cultural producers" in neoliberal society. 

Commonism. A new aesthetics of the real

2020-11-12T01:05:50+01:00Tags: , , , |

The book explores the ideological thoughts under the notion of the commons and asks how this shapes the reality of our living together. Pays attention to the aesthetic dimension of communism as an ideology: what artistic strategies and what aesthetics do commoners adopt? After half a century of neoliberalism, a new radical, practice-based ideology is making its way from the margins: commonism, with an o in the middle. It is based on the values of sharing, common (intellectual) ownership and new social co-operations. Commoners assert that social relationships can replace money (contract) relationships. They advocate solidarity and they trust in peer-to-peer relationships to develop new ways of production. Commonism maps those new ideological thoughts. How do they work and, especially, what is their aesthetics? How do they shape the reality of our living together? Is there another, more just future imaginable through the commons? What strategies and what aesthetics do commoners adopt? This book explores this new political belief system, alternating between theoretical analysis, wild artistic speculation, inspiring art examples, almost empirical observations and critical reflection.

The future of the commons

2018-06-15T15:04:10+01:00Tags: , , , , |

In this essay, David Harvey argues that the real problem demanding our attention is private property, not the commons itself. The capitalist commons is being continuously enclosed, but it is also being continuously produced. To fulfill our common interests, we need to look to the powers of collective labor to address capitalism's destruction of land and labor resources.

Jugoslovensko radničko samoupravljanje

2020-11-12T21:52:20+01:00Tags: , , |

Ovo je transkript dela intervjua koji je snimljen u Beogradu 2003. godine.  "Jugoslovensko samoupravljanje je bilo kako društvena, tako i nacionalna laboratorija. U društvenom smislu, to je bio eksperiment nastao pod uticajem raznih ideja: nasleđe Pariske komune, nasleđe srpske socijalne demokratije sa kraja devetnaestog veka, zaostavština anarhije, koja je kasnije bila veoma važna u kritici staljinizma. Idejni sadržaji anarhije i trockizma su bili sastavni elementi ideologije Titove partije, jer su koristili u kritici staljinizma. Sa druge strane, kao što sam već naglasio, sistem jugoslovenskog samoupravljanja je isto tako bio i nacionalna, čak nadnacionalna laboratorija. To je bio režim, u kome su veoma različite nacije mirno živele, gde je funkcionisala nadnacionalna ekonomija, gde je nadnacionalni vođa bio veoma popularan - od Makedonije do Slovenije."

Towards Experimental Urbanism

2018-06-15T14:56:37+01:00Tags: , |

Architecture and urban design are usually seen as tools of dominant spatial practices. They are either believed to mask the interests of power and money, or to represent aesthetic concerns that have little to offer for critical theory of space. I counter this view by showing that through rethinking the conception of space in architecture and urban design, as well as the notion of design itself, it is possible to outline a critical and emancipatory design practice, experiential urbanism.

Spaces of Commoning. Artistic Research and the Utopia of Everyday

2018-06-15T14:43:11+01:00Tags: |

The texts assembled in this book are a sincere attempt to document the trials and errors in a study of commoning, a series of disruptions, failures, of falling apart, and the search for means to come together again. With this in mind, many of the contributions here do confront questions of methodology: they reflect on methods that support the study as well as the practice of commoning, methods that cherish critical reexamination and allow for unresolved dilemmas.

Spaces of commoning: Urban commons in the ex-Yu region

2020-11-12T01:10:14+01:00Tags: , , , |

The book is a collection of different texts and case studies from the countries of the Western Balkans that have been facing dramatic social, political and economic changes along with the so called transition since the beginning of 1990s. The present texts contextualise the concept of the commons through the practices of various actors, initiatives and organisations in Serbia, Kosovo and Montenegro, while taking a political and critical view on the concept of the commons and discussing its capacities as an alternative to neoliberalism. It is meant to showcase practices that encourage narratives and practices of resistance, transformation and promising a possible change.

O komuni

2020-11-12T01:03:14+01:00Tags: , , |

Neodvojivi deo Kardeljevog stvaralaštva je i njegovo neposredno i stalno teorijsko i praktično angažovanje na pitanjima komune i komunalnog sistema na svim etapama izgradnje i razvoja našeg socijalističkog samoupravnog društva. Polazeći od toga da je komuna socijalistička samoupravna humana zajednica ljudi, složen sistem društvenih odnosa i osnovna društvena zajednica u kojoj radni čovek i građanin može i treba da ostvaruje najveći deo svojih osnovnih interesa, prava, dužnosti i odgovornosti, Kardelj je na svim etapama razvoja jugoslovenskog samoupravnog društva ne samo isticao značaj komune i teorijski objašnjavao pojedine njene aspekte nego upravo aktivno i neposredno radio na razrešavanju svih pitanja i problema u ovoj oblasti. I u prilikama kada su razmatrana druga pitanja i odnosi u društvu i tražena rešenja za druge probleme u razvoju samoupravljanja, on je posebno isticao važnost i značaj rešavanja određenih pitanja u komuni, odnosno polazio od toga da je za ukupan razvoj socijalističkih samoupravnih odnosa u društvu bitno stanje samoupravnih odnosa u komuni. U ovoj knjizi sakupljeni su Kardeljevi radovi o komuni. Termin „radovi” treba uzeti sasvim uslovno. U knjizi su i studije ili njihovi delovi koji se odnose na komunu i sistematizovana i pripremljena izlaganja ili članai i intervjui, ali i mnogi govori i razgovori u različitim prilikama susreta sa ljudima iz opština — na skupovima Stalne konferencije gradova, na sastancima političkih aktiva, sa predstavnicima mesnih zajednica;, u radničkim sredinama, na savetovanjima i seminarima. Opširan predgovor napisao je Živorad Kovačević.

Publikacija predstavlja niz uvodnih studija koje povezuje jedno jednostavno pitanje: kakva je uloga zajedničkih dobara u prošlim društvima i na koji način ona mogu pomoći u izgradnji budućih. S tim na umu, ova publikacija proučava pojam zajedničkih dobara kroz kritiku kapitalizma kao sistema robne proizvodnje i rasprave o njegovim mogućim alternativa.

Performing the common city: On the crossroads of arts, politics and public life

2020-11-12T01:06:24+01:00Tags: , , , |

Pascal Gielen, art theoretician from Belgium, writes about the contemporary city, its shift from the space for the bourgeois class to the current trend of privatisation of public spaces and the role of arts in these processes. His analysis is based on theories and practices of Haussmann, Michel de Certeau, Chantal Mouffe, Saskia Sassen and others, while going through different conceptions of the city  as the common space: from Haussmann's urban structure in 18th century to Florida's creative city to the common city.

Nestandardno zapošljavanje širom svijeta. Razumevanje izazova, oblikovanje mogućnosti

2020-11-12T23:19:49+01:00Tags: , |

Februara 2015. godine Međunarodna organizacija rada je  održala tripartitni sastanak stručnjaka o nestandardnim oblicima zapošljavanja, koji  je okupio stručnjake kako bi, tokom četiri dana, razgovarali o izazovima za dostojanstven rad, koje oblici jurisdictions zapošljavanja mogu da generišu. U zaključcima sastanka, države članice, poslodavci i radničke organizacije pozvani su da osmisle politike za rešavanje deficita dostojanstvenog rada koji se povezuje sa nestandardnim oblicima rada kako bi svi radnici - bez obzira na oblik njihovog angažmana - imali koristi od dostojanstvenog rada.  Ovaj izvještaj se zasniva na pripremama za sastanak stručnjaka 2015. godine, koje su obuhvatile nalaze iz širokog spektra studija o ekonomskim i pravnim aspektima nestandardnih oblika zapošljavanja u mnogim zemljama i not regionima sveta, kao na određene relevantne teme, kao što  je uticaj na preduzeća, i bezbednost i zaštitu zdravlja.

The Production of Space

The book is a search for a reconciliation between mental space (the space of the philosophers) and real space (the physical and social spheres in which we all live). In the course of his exploration, Henri Lefebvre moves from metaphysical and ideological considerations of the meaning of space to its experience in the everyday life of home and city.

Knjiga prati izložbu održanu u Novom Sadu 2005. godine u produkciji kuda.org.  Tematska instalacija “Alternativne ekonomije, alternativna društva” Olivera Roslera se fokusirala na raznolike koncepte i modele alternativnih ekonomija i društava, kojima je zajedničko odbacivanje kapitalističkog sistema vladavine. Za svaki koncept je napravljen po jedan intervju. Partneri u intervjuima su ekonomisti, stručnjaci iz oblasti političkih nauka, autori i istoričari. Iz ovih intervjua je napravljen video zapis na engleskom jeziku. Prateća knjiga obuhvata brojne tekstove napisane oko tema koje je pokrenula izložba.

Artist at work, Proximity of art and capitalism

2020-11-12T22:02:04+01:00Tags: , , , |

The main affirmation of artistic practice must today happen through thinking about the conditions and the status of the artist's work. Only then can it be revealed that what is a part of the speculations of capital is not art itself, but mostly artistic life. Artist at Work examines the recent changes in the labour of an artist and addresses them from the perspective of performance. It draws its conclusions mainly from the argument that art no longer needs to re-affirm itself as a socially relevant and useful activity because this would lock it within immanent capitalist (and populist) production of value. Instead, art has to rediscover its material basis and 'occupy' exactly those abstractions which enable the preservation of the capitalist system and reproduction of capital. The book would like to remind art – which has constantly thermalized and practiced politics during the last decades – that it has forgotten its power to connect the abilities of the abstract (thinking) with the actual abstractions (value, capital, productivity, money, commodity, time, etc.)

Postajanje majkom u vreme neoliberalnog kapitalizma

2020-11-12T01:09:07+01:00Tags: , |

Knjiga Postajanje majkom sadrži umetniãke radove, interdisciplinarne studije iz oblasti humanistiãkih i društvenih nauka, kao i tekstove koji se bave promišljanjem liãnog i aktivistiãkog iskustva i rada. Nastajala je u procesu istraživanja koje je sprovedeno kako bi se preispitale institucionalizovane prakse materinstva u savremenom društvu, njihovi efekti u svakodnevnom životu, kao i vidovi otpora i (radikalne) politiãke subjektivizacije u odnosu na njih. Knjiga je usmerena na demistifikaciju, denaturalizaciju i reevaluaciju normi materinstva koje uvek ukazuju na odnose u specifiãnim materijalnim uslovima i okolnostima centriranja ili decentriranja javne ili privatne moçi ili društvenosti. Bavi se materinstvom kao globalnim problemom, kroz analize i iskustva angažmana u pojedinim zemljama, ali ukazuje i na specifiãnosti lokalnog konteksta, kroz iskustva u pojedinim bivšim jugoslovenskim republikama, što predstavlja pokušaj povezivanja odre∂enih globalnih trendova sa posebnostima u lokalnoj sredini.
