Happy and Engaged May Days !
::: Update ::::
It’s the 50th anniversary of May 68 ! Student revolt and a general strike
erupted ( initially in France ), and widespread discontent gave rise to one of the most *orgasmic* political events of the 20th century. With ripples and
shockwaves, actions, sentiments and many poetic + pragmatic
revolutionary manifestations became a nearly global-wide scream for
Another Possible World !
” Sous les pavés, la plage ! -
Beneath the cobblestones, the beach! ” – agitprop /grafitti in France
This Double-Feature episode of C-KiNO gathers both historical views (
archival ) and realtime evidence ( current media ) of another volcanic
potency spreading today. Only now, the contexts seem even more urgent
and volatile than before. In the dark grip of the Anthropocene crisis,
i.e. scientific analysis + theory which reveals a highly likely – if not
guaranteed – total environmental collapse in the absence of a radical
reformatting of social organization, we look for revolutionary
strategies that might lead us out of a calamitous cul de sac.
We screen a mix of materials to discuss, from the creative La ZAD resistance in
France to the new fights against the “cybernetic regimes” ( Spectacle
2.0 ) like FuckoffGoogle ! Standby for a possible playlist.
Beneath the Anthroposcreens, the breach !”
Accompanying analysis of Bruno Latour’s Anthropocene lecture ( and a quick look at his latest books Facing Gaia + Das Terrestriche Manifest ) at HKW in Berlin on May 4th, coming soon ( in Part 2 ) !
