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.

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.”

O umjetnosti i socijalizmu

2020-11-12T01:08:06+01:00Tags: , |

William Morris bio je britanski umetnik, arhitekta, dizajner, dekorater, štampar, pesnik, prozni pisac, zanatlija, prevodilac, predavač, politički organizator i socijalista. Za njega je E.P. Thompson napisao da je bio „ prvi kreativni umjetnik visokog kalibra u čitavoj povijesti koji je svjesno i bez trunke kompromisa stao uz revolucionarnu radničku klasu”.  Morris je, prihvativši marksizam, uvideo da su beda i ružnoća sveta koje je toliko mrzeo neodvojive od društvenog i ekonomskog sistema u kojem nastaju, a da je regeneracija umetnosti (i života) fundamentalno političko, a ne isključivo ni prvenstveno umetničko pitanje.

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.

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?

“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.

The dynamism of the new economy: Non-standard employment and access to social security in EU-28

2020-11-12T23:00:56+01:00Tags: , |

This paper examines the prevalence of non-standard workers in EU-28, rules for accessing social security, and these workers’ risk of not being able to access it. It focuses on temporary and part-time workers, and the self-employed, and offers a particularly detailed analysis of their access to unemployment benefits. It focuses on eligibility, adequacy (net income replacement rates) and identifies those workers which are at the greatest risk of either not receiving benefits or receiving low benefits. It offers a special overview of foreign non-standard workers, who may be particularly vulnerable due to the absence of citizenship in the host country. The paper also analyses access to maternity and sickness benefits for these three groups of workers, as well as their access to pensions. Its key contribution is in bringing together the different dimensions of disadvantage that non-standard workers face vis-à-vis access to social protection. This allows us to comprehensively assess the adaptation of national social security systems across EU-28 to the changing world of work over the past 10 years. The paper shows that there is a lot of variation between the Member States, both in the structure of their social security systems, as well as the prevalence of non-standard work. Most notably, the paper concludes that: i) access to unemployment benefits is the most challenging component of welfare state provision for people in non-standard employment; ii) policy reforms vis-à-vis access to social benefits have improved the status of non-standard workers in several countries, while they have worsened it in others, particularly in Bulgaria, Ireland and Latvia; iii) some Eastern European countries can offer lessons to other Member States due to their experiences with labour market challenges during transition and the subsequent adaptations of their social security systems to greater labour market flexibility. The paper also implies that a country’s policy towards nonstandard work cannot be examined in isolation from its labour market conditions, as well as its growth model, and that uniform policy solutions for non-standard work cannot be applied across EU-28.

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.

Labour as a commons: The example of workers-recuperated companies

2020-11-12T22:02:30+01:00Tags: , , , |

This article argues that labour can be understood as a commons, located in the discussion of how commons can advance the transformation of social relations and society. To manage labour as a commons entails a shift away from the perception of labour power as the object of capital’s value practices, towards a notion of labour power as a collectively and sustainably managed resource for the benefit of society. Given that social change is largely a result of social struggle, it is crucial to examine germinal forms of labour as a commons present in society. I focus my analysis on worker-recuperated companies in Latin America and Europe. Worker-recuperated companies are enterprises self-managed by their workers after the owners close them down. Despite operating within the hegemonic capitalist market, they do not adopt capitalist rationality and are proven viable. Worker-recuperated companies offer a new perspective on labour as a 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."

Postajanje majkom u vreme neoliberalnog kapitalizma

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.

Udruženi rad i samoupravno planiranje

2020-11-12T01:03:50+01:00Tags: , , , , |

Knjiga »Udruženi rad i samoupravno planiranje« sadrži one radove Edvarda Kardelja koji su nastali u vezi sa neposrednom prirodom i donošenjem Zakona o udruženom radu i Zakona o osnovama sistema društvenog planiranja i o društvenom planu Jugoslavije, kao i njihovom razradom i primenom u samoupravnoj praksi. Ovi radovi predstavljaju ne samo teorijsko produbljivanje koncepta i sistema dohodovnih odnosa u udruženom radu na načelima novog Ustava, Zakona o udruženom radu i drugih sistemskih zakona, nego i kritičko razmatranje njihovog neposrednog ostvarivanja. Radovi »O sistemu samoupravnog planiranja« i »Slobodni udruženi rad« su, u stvari, posebne knjige iz serije »Brionske diskusije«. U radu »Dalji razvoj društveno-ekonomskih odnosa na osnovu Ustava i Zakona o udruženom radu i učvršćenje položaja radnika« (1976), Kardelj je ukazao na ulogu svih organizovanih snaga našeg društva, posebno Saveza komunista, u razvoju socijalističkih samoupravnih društveno-ekonomskih odnosa. Rad »Sticanje i raspodela sredstava za lične dohotke na osnovu rada jedno od najaktuelnijih pitanja našeg društva danas« (1978) je intervju redakciji časopisa »Svetlost« iz Kragujevca povodom Desetog susreta samoupravljača Jugoslavije »Crveni barjak«.

The Undercommons: Fugitive planning & black studies

2020-11-12T01:02:34+01:00Tags: , , |

In "The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning & Black Study", Moten and Harney examine the University, Debt, Politics and Logistics to help us grasp how these (and other) institutions, organizations and capitalist mechanisms (including the State as an agent of capital) reduce our ability to empathize, our capacity for true learning and our ability to love. Moten and Harney define the “The Undercommons” as “Maroon communities of composition teachers, mentorless graduate students, adjunct Marxist historians, out or queer management professors, state college ethnic studies departments, closed-down film programs, visa-expired Yemeni student newspaper editors, historically black college sociologists, and feminist engineers ” that “refuse to ask for recognition and instead want to take apart, dismantle, tear down the structure that, right now, limits our ability to find each other, to see beyond it and to access the places we know lie beyond its walls. ” The structure itself is holding us back; as we pour our energies into combatting mass incarceration, debt-slavery, and the professionalization of intellect, Moten and Harney argue that we only buttress the society that makes such singularly anti-human calamities possible in the first place...

The Bolshevik Revolution: One hundred years after

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.

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."

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.
