Minor Compositions is a research – theorizing – publishing project whose aim is to bring together, develop, and mutate forms of autonomist thought and practice, avant-garde aesthetics, and an everyday approach to politics. This draws a good deal of inspiration from history of militant research and workers’ inquiry, expanding it beyond inquiry into particular workplaces into a more general investigation of cultural labor, social reproduction, and the relationship between radical politics and their neutralization by market and state forces.
What can ongoing political organizing learn from the history of radical art and cultural politics?
For this evening editor Stevphen Shukaitis will talk about Minor Composition (and Autonomedia) as project and publication series, focusing on themes such as precarity, the radical imagination, communization, occupations, and autonomy. How do these ideas developed from within movements in one context migrate to other countries and situations? And what happens to them when they move?
