common-place Berlín

New Year’s Reading Group


13.01.2020, common-place, Berlin, Germany.

After a hectic year and all the celebrations, we want to start the new year fresh with some reflection, combined with hot chocolate and nice discussions. For this reading group we’ve asked several people connected to common-place to propose a text connected to issues concerning the collective such as (among other things) the potential of the precariat,  commoning and other collective/alternative strategies of organization.

The reading group takes place from Tuesday 7 till Friday 10 January 2020. You can come on any or all days if you want. We’ll be reading and discussing the following texts:

Tuesday January 7: ‘Against Immediacy’ by Florian Endres

Wednesday January 8: ‘Precariat – A Revolutionary Class?’ by Lara Garcia Diaz & Pascal Gielen

Thursday January 8: ‘The Way into an Egalitarian Society. Principles and Practice of a Matriarchal Politics’ by Dr. Heide Goettner-Abendroth

Friday January 9: ‘Common Aesthetic. The Shape of a New Meta-Ideology’ by Pascal Gielen
