'This is Forever': From Inquiry to Refusal ~ A Discussion Series @ Bluestockings - FALL SChEDULE

the kids | This is Forever’ – this is for the future. What we will in the present cracks open the actually-existing to unleash potentials for the yet-to-come. What we affirm now will return to us, accumulating a set of powers and virtues into a body capable of refusing command and of claiming its own irreversible destiny. This is an inquiry into the current composition of political movements and struggle, which seeks to understand acts of refusal that are taking place on the terrain of everyday life and on the level of planetary antagonisms. This is the attempt to theorize from these positions toward new ways of life, and new ways of organizing society.

Our store is not ergonomically designed and until it is, the purchase of a stepladder would be a simple solution to a number of safety concerns. more...  2 Comments
