About the books

Permanent Reproductive Crisis: An Interview with Silvia Federici

NY Wages For Housework Poster

On the occasion of the publication of an anthology of her writing and the accession of a  Wages for Housework NY archive at Mayday Rooms in London, Marina Vishmidt interviewed Silvia Federici on her extensive contribution to feminist thought and recent work on debt activism (with contributions by Mute, Mayday Rooms and George Caffentzis)

 

Is it OK to Punch a Nazi (Art Gallery)?

Under the Radar, the Eugenics Salon

The art-right are on the rise and even the deep, market-reflexive complacency of the London artscene shows signs of being ruffled. How on earth did reactionaries get a foot hold in galleries and educational institutions, what were people thinking?, asks O.D. Untermesh, and how does the fascist aesthetic of our moment work? Most of all – how can it be opposed?

Unruly Life: Subverting ‘Surplus’ Existence in Tunisia

Mabrouk Ghodbani from Kasserine, Tunisia shows his stitched lips. Rached was on hunger strike from 24 January 2016 when he decided on January 27 to sew his lips in protest against the interim government.

 

Taking the case of Tunisia’s Dignity Revolution, Oana Parvan examines the structural connections between the growing global category of those designated ‘surplus life’ by the neo-imperial economy – and by extension, condemned to social and often actual death – and the preconditions of revolution

The 'working class should have voted Bernie, not Hilary (that neoliberal machine!)' argument is an apology for a racist, because exclusively white, conception of those disposessed by neoliberalism, and a nostalgia for an older order of national(ist), closed-border capitalism – argues Angela Mitropoulos

 

Rubber Boats & the Planetary Class Struggle

The global border regime excludes from transport those who most need to travel, with deadly consequences. While migrants resist and overcome state control of movement, the dominant sense of the 'refugee crisis' forecloses a perspective of class struggle. Richard B analyses the production and distribution of rightless non-citizens by national capitals acting internationally, to recover a sense of the challenge to capital migrants pose as a proletariat

 

Introduction

 

And I want us to be a country where it doesn’t matter where you were born, who your parents are, where you went to school, what your accent sounds like, what god you worship, whether you’re a man or a woman, gay or straight, or black or white.

– Theresa May, 5 October 2016, Conservative Party Conference
