State of insecurity: Government of the precarious

2020-11-12T00:59:02+01:00Tags: , , |

From the review by Ana Vujanović: The political theorist Isabell Lorey has appeared as one of the most striking European voices in the recent debate on precarity and precarization in neoliberalism. Her theoretical discourse draws from the referential frameworks of political and biopolitical theory, feminism, gender and postcolonial studies, as well as of recent social and political movements, such as Euromayday, Occupy and 15-M. This invigorating and politically sharp intersection has created a potent critical platform for analyzing representative democracy, biopolitical governmentality, immunization, and precarization, which belong to Lorey's main concerns. Isabell Lorey is particularly concerned with the neoliberal “state of insecurity” and how it relates to the process of precarization. In fact, although the book is entitled State of Insecurity, it could also be considered a sequel of Lorey’s long-term research on precarity, a sequel that focuses on how precarization is immersed in neoliberal government of and by insecurity. The line that opens the book reads: “If we fail to understand precarization, then we understand neither the politics nor the economy of the present."

Država, tržište i neka preliminarna pitanja o zajedničkim dobrima

2018-06-15T14:29:43+01:00Tags: , , |

Ako zajednička dobra ispravno teoretiziramo i politički sagledamo, zajednička dobra mogu odigrati ključnu ulogu u vraćanju socijalne pravednosti u užu domenu privatno-pravnog diskursa. Međutim, takav pomak iziskuje značajan raskid s prevladavajućim stavom koji pretpostavlja da u upravljanju resursima mora posredovati ili država ili privatno vlasništvo.

Zajednička dobra i granice kapitalizma

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.

Heritage as common(s). Common(s) as heritage

2020-11-12T01:00:33+01:00Tags: , , , |

In 2014 "the Urban Heritage Research Cluster as part of Critical Heritage Studies, University of Gothenburg, organized seven seminars under the heading: “Heritage as Common(s) – Commons as Heritage, or HAC-CAH. The seminars have brought us to places like Ground Zero in New York, a creek in Olympia, Café The Swan in Amsterdam, Ellis Creek Water Recycling Facility in Petaluma, St Ann´s Church in Manchester, Central Park in New York, the Old city of Jerusalem, Stortorget in Malmö, the Al-Qaryon Square in Nablus, and Gezi Park in Istanbul. We have probed the notion of friendship, scrutinized the paradigm shifts from reproduction to production, explored the tension between top-down and bottom-up heritage. We have enjoyed the potential of biological commons and have looked into the different tempi and temporalities of commoning and heritage works. The seminar series has originated and evolved along the path we set up for the Urban Heritage Research Cluster in the start: “the city as an interface of different temporalities – i.e. past events, dreams for the future and contemporary constraints – and heritage as intermingled in many different urban realities and entangled in issues of aesthetics, ethics, space and power…”."

Vazduh kao zajedničko dobro

2022-07-08T15:08:34+01:00Tags: , |

Zagađenje vazduha dolazi iz različitih izvora i oni su se kroz istoriju menjali, kao i njegova koncentracija, ali uzrok je uvek ostajao isti, a to je društvo u kojem živimo. U ovoj knjizi obrađeni su istorijski nivo zagađenja vazduha, trenutni kvalitet vazduha, kao i društveno-ekonomski razlozi i dominantni narativi koji doprinose lošijem kvalitetu vazduha. Čist vazduh i zdrava životna sredina morali bi da budu zajednička dobra koja su svima dostupna, a do toga je moguće doći pre svega politizacijom ove borbe i društvenim promenama.

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.

The Production of Space

2018-06-15T14:57:16+01:00Tags: |

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.

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.

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.

Alternativno radno zakonodavstvo

2020-11-12T23:26:08+01:00Tags: , , |

Ova studija ima za cilj da pokaže koje alternative postojećem dogmatskom prihvatanju divljeg neoliberalizma i predatorskog kapitalizma u Srbiji postoje, kao i kako se one mogu implementirati kroz izmene radnog zakonodavstva. Prvi deo studije odnosi se na kritičku analizu osnovnih postulata na kojima počivaju nedavne i najavljene buduće izmene propisa. Potom će se u naredna dva dela predstaviti individualna i kolektivna prava zaposlenih, uz predloge konkretnih izmena propisa koje bi mogle dovesti do implementacije alternativnih rešenja za normiranje radnih odnosa. Konačno, u zaključnim razmatranjima će se posvetiti pažnja sintezi svega iznetog u ocenu sistema koji bi potencijalno mogao da funkcioniše kao samostalan i uspešan, u datim okolnostima u Srbiji. Osnovna hipoteza kojom se analiza rukovodi jeste da su alternative trenutnom stanju ne samo moguće (u normativnom i ekonomskom smislu) već i nužne i racionalne, jer aktuelne politike ne mogu održati čak ni trenutno stanje na duži rok. Budući da u trci do dna dno zapravo ne postoji, jer se uvek može otići korak niže od konkurenata u privlačenju investicija, jedini dugoročni plan može biti napuštanje trenutnih odnosa i jačanje kontrolne i socijalne uloge države. U analizi se odlazi i korak dalje pa se osim nužnosti postojanja alternativa, one razvijaju a ponekad i konkretno normativno uobličavaju. Kroz istraživanje se dakle postavljaju pitanja ali se daju i odgovori, koji mogu biti tumačeni i primenjeni u daljoj praksi i politikama u skladu sa individualnim pogledima i stavovima, ali suštinski nude rešenja zasnovana na nekim univerzalnim vrednostima koja predstavljaju civilizacijsko dostignuće, koja se zasnivaju na osnovama ljudskih prava i sloboda i nadogradnji kroz praksu univerzalnih i regionalnih instrumenata i tela, i čija primena niti u jednom trenutku ne sme postati upitna.

Odrastnički turizam

2022-07-14T14:35:11+01:00Tags: , |

Kada je u pitanju turizam, postoji jako mali broj radova koji spajaju oblasti odrasta i turizama. Odrast u turizmu zahteva radikalnu promenu turističkih obrazaca. Odrastničke prakse u turizmu povezane su uglavnom sa drugim oblicima alternativnog turizma kao što su ekoturizam, održivi turizam, zeleni turizam, spori turizam, turizam u zajednici, turizam u korist siromašnih i fer turizam. Kao rezultat toga, iako možemo zaključiti da postoji primetna konvergencija odrastničkog turizma sa drugim vidovima alternativnog turizma, oni nisu u potpunosti istovetni, razlog tome je što odrast kao pojam objedinjuje sve pozitivne preduslove drugih oblika alternativnog turizma koje pojedini vidovi turizma nemaju.

Otvorena kultura i priroda mreža

2020-11-12T01:06:55+01:00Tags: , |

Knjiga obuhvata 11 tekstova Feliksa Štaldera.Prvih sedam se bavi različitim aspektima nastanka i kritikom “otvorenih kultura”, tj. novih procesa u kulturi inspirisanih Pokretom za kompjuterski softver slobodnog i otvorenog kôda. Dok je nedavna praksa ovog pokreta važna referenca, kulturne prakse koje su otvorene za slobodnu rekonfiguraciju su, naravno, mnogo starije, a esej Kulture bez roba ih prati u prošlost sve do dadaizma početkom XX veka. Druga grupa eseja se bavi karakterom mrežnog oblika organizacije, često se pozivajući na koncepte “prostora tokova” (Manuel Castells), tj. na materijalnu infrastrukturu za organizaciju translokalnosti, zasnovanu na digitalnim informacionim tokovima.
