Experimental Geographies

"There is tenderness only in the coarsest demand: that no-one shall go hungry any more" – Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia (1974: 156)

Weekend Roundup

1) Bifo on banks and occupation. A thought-provoking piece by Franco ‘Bifo’ Beradi especially in light of recent direct action taken here in the UK by groups such as UKUncut.

2) Rosa Luxemburg at the London Review Bookshop. The London Review Bookshop is hosting a book launch of The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg as part of International Women’s Day. All the details can be found here. For a summary of Rosa Luxemburg related events in London see here.

3) Iain Boal at Goldsmiths (via Stuart at Progressive Geographies). “From Renaissance Globe to Google Earth: Visualizing the Planet,” Thursday, March 10th,  5-7, Goldsmiths, University of London, Room NAB (New Academic Building) 3.26. Iain Boal is a member of the Retort Collective, with whom he co-authored Afflicted Powers: Capital and Spectacle in a New Age of War, along with T.J. Clark, Joseph Matthews and Michael Watts. He is the author of the forthcoming book The Long Theft: Episodes in the History of Enclosure. He is also the editor of Archives of Dissent, to be published by PM Press. He has also just completed a book on the world history of the bicycle.

4) Politics of Housing in France. An interesting piece in Rue89. One of the authors is a founding member of the Jeudi-Noir collective who were recently evicted from a squatted building on the Avenue Matignon in Paris.
