The Making of the Knowledge Commons: From Lobsters to Universities

2018-06-15T14:46:07+01:00Tags: |

The first part is a discussion of the typical difficulties encountered in the making of commons in general. In the second part he analyses a number of typical problems that the constituent community of the knowledge commons, especially universities, their faculties and students, must face in preventing a “tragedy of the knowledge commons.”

Becoming Common: Precarization as political constituting

2020-11-12T01:09:39+01:00Tags: , , |

"The discourse on precarization that has emerged in the past decade, primarily in Europe, rests on an extremely complex understanding of social insecurity and its productivity. The various strands of this discourse have been brought together again and again in the context of the European precarious movement organised under EuroMayDay....What is unusual about this social movement is not only the way in which under its auspices new forms of political struggle are tested and new perspectives of precarizatin developed; rather - and it is striking in relation to other social movements - it is how it has queered a seemingly disparate fields of the cultural and political again and again. In the past decade, conversations concerning both the (partly subversive) knowledge of the precarious and a search for commons (in order to constitute the political), has conspicuously taken place more in art institution than in social, political, or even academic contexts."

“Being in Common” Theorizing Artistic Collaboration

2018-10-16T19:50:27+01:00Tags: , |

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.

Ovo je rezultat rada na analizi efekata i rezultata dvogodišnjeg sprovođenja Zakona o radu donetog 2014. godine. Na analizi je radio tim stručnjaka koji je obradio rezultate ispitivanja različitih grupa aktera (sindikati, poslodavci, državna tela, nevladine organizacije...) i uz konsultacije za drugim zainteresovanim stranama (Ministarstvo za rad, zapošljavanje boračka i socijalna pitanja, Nacionalna služba zapošljavanja, Međunarodna organizacija rada, Savez samostalnih sindikata Srbije, Unija poslodavaca, Beogradski centar za ljudska prava...).

ABC jugoslavenskog socijalizma

2020-11-12T21:24:09+01:00Tags: , , , |

Knjiga je skup tekstova i istraživanja Branka Horvata koji je pokušao da osnovne pojmove jugoslovenskog socijalizma objasni na jasan i jednostavan način ("zbog toga nema ni citata, ni bibliografije, ni druge uobičajene aparature"), uzimajući za uzor Buharinovu knjigu "ABC komunizma" koju smatra dobrom idejom, ali lošom knjigom.  U svom teorijskom radu, Horvat socijalizam posmatra kao svetsko-istorijski proces sa tri karakteristična prelaza ka socijalizmu: prelaz razvijenih kapitalističkih zemalja, prelaz etatističkih zemalja i prelaz nerazvijenih zemalja. Međutim, jugoslovenki slučaj ne pripada ni jednom od njih i zato je ovu knjigu posvetio upravo objašnjenju specfiičnosti jugoslovenskog socijalističkog projekta.  

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.

Da li bi politika univerzalnog osnovnog dohotka mogla biti primenjiva u Srbiji?

2018-10-16T20:13:59+01:00Tags: , , |

Iako se poslednjih nekoliko godina univerzalni osnovni dohodak (UOD) provlači kroz mejnstrim politike, i dalje nije sasvim jasno o tome šta on podrazumeva i u kojim se okolnostima može smatrati progresivnom politikom. Može li UOD funkcionisati u Srbiji, pogotovo imajući u vidu društvene i ekonomske izazove sa kojima se suočavamo u 21. veku?

Novi oblici samoupravljanja: radničko akcionarstvo i drugi oblici demokratskih preduzeća

2022-07-14T14:27:40+01:00Tags: , , |

Kada govorimo o savremenim borbama protiv komodifikacije rada i svakodnevnog života, te za uspostavljanje drugačijeg – pravednijeg, humanijeg i održivijeg – ekonomskog sistema, ne možemo, a da se ne osvrnemo na iskustvo samoupravnog socijalizma u SFRJ kao jedinstvenog istorijskog primera široke primene principa ekonomske demokratije sa ciljem ostvarivanja većeg učešća zaposlenih u donošenju ekonomskih odluka, decentralizacije vlasništva i vantržišne društvene reprodukcije. Kritički pogled na ovaj period može predstavljati putokaz za osmišljavanje savremenih modela i sistema koji umesto generisanju profita teže zadovoljenju potreba društva (i životne sredine).

The Bolshevik Revolution: One hundred years after

2020-11-12T01:00:56+01:00Tags: , |

This issue of Crisis and Critique brings together some of the most important contemporary thinkers, who engage with the historical, political and philosophical resonances of the Bolshevik Revolution into our context.They engage with different dimensions which compose the Bolshevik Event and its aftermath.The point is not to reassert the relevance of the Revolution, nor explore the possibilities of faithfulness to it, but rather, the aim of this issue is to claim that politics of emancipation, philosophy and history cannot be the same after this Revolution. It is a unavoidable point of reference, one that cannot be simply ignored.

Creative or common city? Civic or civil society?

2020-11-12T01:04:59+01:00Tags: , , |

At the end of February 2017, Pascal Gielen gave this lecture on the relationship between art, politics and the civil space in the creative city, as part of a programme which ran alongside CCA's exhibition Forms of Action (28 Jan - 12 Mar 2017) on socially engaged art practices. The lecture is based on a pilot research project Gielen undertook for the European Cultural Foundation in 2016, and also looks at how activists and creative workers respond to this policy by organising themselves in alternative ways.

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.

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.

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.)
