The authors develop the theory of the commons by strengthening its link with a Marxist critique of capitalism. In order to do so, they draw parallels between the work of Elinor Ostrom on principles of sustainable governance and Branko Horvat’s theory of self-management developed in the context of socialist Yugoslavia.
This paper will explore contemporary practices of urban commoning while attempting to construct a theoretical argument on the inherently emancipating potentialities of common space.
Smatramo da je pitanje dostupnosti i upravljanja vodom, njeno održivo korišćenje i zaštita, političko pitanje na koje neće biti moguće dati odgovor, koji je u skladu sa principima jednakosti i demokratičnosti, bez odgovarajuće analize, vizije i akcije koje u fokus stavljaju potrebe ljudi a ne interese kapitala. Cilj nam je da ovo istraživanje doprinese davanju takvog odgovora.
Situated in the post-welfare transition of European societies within the context defined by austerity measures, unemployment, the financialisation of real estate stocks and the gradual withdrawal of public administrations from social services, this book aims at highlighting the importance of self-organised, locally rooted, inclusive and resilient community networks and civic spaces.
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.
Forgotten history of the commons in socialist Yugoslavia: A case of self-managed cultural infrastructure in the period of 1960s and 1970s
The article makes a critical step towards a few now already established claims of the chief theoretical protagonists of the commons – Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri1 – who offer a way out from the allegedly false binaries and dilemmas between private or public, state or market, capitalism or socialism.
Here we discuss what we see as one new political strategy in the wars of position in contemporary capitalism. We suggest that Coopcycle, an online app invented for cooperative organizations of delivery workers, may be initiating an innovative left strategy of class struggle by activating a new form of mobilization that confronts changing work organization and technology in line with the changing subjectivities and class alliances of the current era.
Stavrides appeals for a new understanding of common space not only as something that can be governed and open to all, but as an essential aspect of our world that expresses, encourages, and exemplifies new forms of social relations and shared experiences.
Knjigu je napisao tadašnji profesor prava na Stenford Univerzitetu kao rezultat istraživanja o opasnostima i ograničenjima koncepta copyright-a za sve kreativne delatnosti, od različitih umetničkih disciplina do cyber prostora, deljenja znanja i pristupa rezultatima kreativnog rada.
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 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.
Anri Lefebvre u ovom tekstu predlaže transdukciju, ekspermentalnu utopiju kao mentalne postupke za osmišljavanje novog humanizma i novog grada. Pravo na urbani žvot može da stvori samo radnička klasa i za to su joj potrebni politički program urbane reforme i urbanistički projekti.
Ovde bih želeo da istražim jedan drugi vid kolektivnog prava – pravo na grad u kontekstu oživljavanja interesovanja za ideje Anrija Lefevra o tom pitanju, kao i pojavu svih vrsta društvenih pokreta širom sveta koji sada traže takvo pravo.
In this chapter it is argued that even when one’s causal contribution to an outcome is imperceptible, or non-existent, one can be morally responsible for it; responsibility is not based on causation.
Some people think universal basic income is a utopian impossibility. Others think it’s dangerous. So there’s a proposal for another solution: universal basic services. Instead of giving people money, why not guarantee all of the public services they need to live a full life?
Sa namerom da ovom publikacijom doprinesemo postojećim istraživanjima na temu zadružnog stanovanja, fokusirali smo se na istraživanje primera dobre prakse, odnosno različitih modela stanovanja u evropskim gradovima. Pored toga, ključni deo publikacije predstavlja i analiza normativnog i regulatornog okvira u Srbiji, u nameri da prepoznamo mehanizme i instrumente koji bi omogućili primenu nekih od ovih modela u lokalnom kontekstu ili ponudimo smernice za unapređenje postojećih.
Inspired by in-depth interviews with members of the international Brussels dance community and the work of some of the authors associated with autonomous Marxism (P. Virno, A. Negri, G. Agamben), the practice of collaboration within contemporary dance is elucidated from a theoretical point of view. Like other forms of creative or immaterial labour, artistic collaborations mobilize various generic competences and invoke in an often implicit way a cultural common or series of conventions.
This book rethinks the city by examining its various forms of collectivity – their atmospheres, modes of exclusion and self-organization, as well as how they are governed – on the basis of a critical discussion of the notion of urban commons.
In this paper the author will explore a complementary problem: in what ways might Basic Income be seen as a structural reform of capitalism that would facilitate a movement in the direction of socialism?
The book reconceptualizes the field of urban sociology through a critique of the literature of urban sociology (and urbanization) and an attempt to lay the Marxist bases for a reconstructed urban sociology.
By reconstructing a materialist conception of nature and society, Marx's Ecology challenges the spiritualism prevalent in the modern Green movement, pointing toward a method that offers more lasting and sustainable solutions to the ecological crisis.
