2018-06-15T14:58:48+01:00Tags: , , , |

The governance of natural resources used by many individuals in common is an issue of increasing concern to policy analysts. Both state control and privatization of resources have been advocated, but neither the state nor the market have been uniformly successful in solving common pool resource problems. After critiquing the foundations of policy analysis as applied to natural resources, Elinor Ostrom here provides a unique body of empirical data to explore conditions under which common pool resource problems have been satisfactorily or unsatisfactorily solved.

“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 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.

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.

2018-06-15T15:03:37+01:00Tags: , , |

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.

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.

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."

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...

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.

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.
