Talking about Capitalism at Berlin’s Transmediale 2012

February 2012

Tomorrow morning I leave for Berlin with Victoria Estok for Transmediale 2012.

I’ll be speaking at Crashed Economy: Debugging and Rebooting. About the talk/panel:

To face the current economical crisis means to question dualistic perspectives such as capitalism vs anti-capitalism as well as to imagine a sustainable network of values in which accumulation of growth and precarity are substituted by a grassroots ecology of sharing built on an increasing capacity for sociability. This event presents two sets of projects which question the notion of capitalism through direct intervention and collective reflections proposing an exodus from proprietary money and trade regulation through distributed commons and practices of social networking.

In Part 1: What Capitalism? Steve Lambert (us) and Daniel Garcia Andujar (es) show how one can critique the concept of capitalism in times of crisis through direct interventions and ludic practices. Elanor Colleoni (it/dk) will act as respondent.

Victoria is in the reSource program.
