Después de las elecciones municipales en España

¿Así acaba la experimentación municipalista abierta tras el 15M? Una vez apaciguada su virulencia y monstruosidad inicial y después de un lento proceso de degradación y descomposición paulatina, la disolución de los últimos resquicios de lo que en 2011 fue una explosión sin precedentes de deseo revolucionario autoorganizado de forma radicalmente democrática parece clara. Los resultados electorales no son más que la foto fija de la crisis de imaginación política por un lado y de la restauración del juego electoral clásico por otro. Puede que su disolución electoral y su degradación general nos hagan pensar que la experimentación acaba aquí. Pero la monstruosidad de los municipalismos iba mucho más allá del asalto institucional, por eso la experimentación debe continuar inventando nuevos mecanismos para transformar radicalmente las ciudades y nuestras formas de vivir juntxs.

An interview with Avery Gordon on her recent book The Hawthorn Archive: Letters from the Utopian Margins

Avery F. Gordon’s The Hawthorn Archive: Letters from the Utopian Margins (2018) is an impressively kaleidoscopic and genre bending book based on Gordon’s more than two decades of research into utopian traditions that have been systematically excluded from the Western canon. Organized in the form of an archive of actual and fictional experiences of living and working together differently, Gordon’s book makes a vast array of “subjugated knowledge” (Foucault) visible and available for appropriation. “The Hawthorn Archive” unearths neglected utopian traditions that are less about some distant future place that would have to be built according to people’s ideals and more about living and working differently in the here and now of the communal. Here, those who were struggling for the Commons (and against enclosures) in 17th-century England are a major reference point for a variety of other movements, including those who struggled for the abolition of the slave trade and slavery in the Americas and those who struggled for decolonization in the Global South.

In the last few decades, violence against women* has been escalating into a "war on women," as Rita Laura Segato calls it: all kinds of structural and sexual violence, including feminicide, brutal discursive tendencies of misogyny and transphobia, the devaluation of care and reproduction, and "anti-genderism". Since 2017, a movement has spread outwards from Latin America that builds on the 8th of March, the day of women's struggle, as the turning and boiling point of an intersectional and transversal struggle.

An interview with Stefania Milan on media, tech and data activism

Focusing on contemporary perspectives of media, tech and data activism, the interview with Stefania Milan discusses their roles within social movement ecologies, the political positions between prefigurative radical activism and reformist participation in ‘multi-stakeholder decision-making’ processes, and the broader question concerning the relationship between social media and protest against the backdrop of the rising critique of commercial platforms.
