Anticapitalism, Postcapitalism, Decapitalism
Ein Vortrag von Nina Power im Rahmen der Reihe "Struktur, Wandel, Öffentlichkeit" des Instituts Kunst im Kontext
Mittwoch, 17. Mai 2017
Universität der Künste Berlin
This talk will ask: How does the way we visualise capitalism change the way we oppose it? By looking at the terms used to discuss various kinds of opposition to capitalism, I suggest that it matters how we represent to ourselves the state and capital, and the relationship between the two, because these images provide us with the understanding of who exactly our enemy is and how it might be opposed. The battle over images that constitutes our everyday experience as mediated and mediatic subjects must be interrogated and recognised as a source of both inhibiting and potentially liberating political qualities.'
