Silvia Federici: Body, Reproduction and the Commons. Perspectives for the Grassroots Feminism

Watch online event
Venue Streamed event
Address Polska
Entry Free

In her latest books, Silvia Federici asks how to organise communal reproduction of society, she opposes the commodification of body and nature, and strikes at the fetish of technological progress. She also criticises liberal feminism which promotes the vision of freedom, individualism, and body alarmingly convergent with the logic of capital. Federici argues that facing the ecological crisis and care crisis efficiently will require “re-enchanting the world”: finding values and practices of cooperation that will constitute an alternative to universal commodification, caused by rampant capitalism.
In the context of current protests against the repressive anti-abortion laws and vivid development of feminist initiatives in Poland, Silvia Federici’s lecture could possibly indicate possible directions and strategies of action.

The meeting will be held in English, without interpreting. The seminar will be held on Zoom. Registration for the Zoom seminar is required via the application form on the Biennale website. After the lecture, there will be a discussion which will be streamed on the Biennale Facebook and YouTube channels, as well as recorded and archived on YouTube and in Resources on the website.
