Oxcars and Free Culture Forum 2011
Networks for a R-evolution

27 to 29 of October 2011 - Barcelona*

**Three days to think about what the Internet has done for us, and what we
can now do for it ;-).*


2011 is the year when the consciousness of a global network has
emerged. The massive and strategic use of social and digital networks
has allowed the movement of citizen empowerment to step up a notch,
and has facilitated a viral uprising of civil society in many parts
of the world. The struggles to defend the Internet have shown to be a
fertile breeding ground for such uprisings.

For a New Europe: University Struggles Against Austerity
Paris - Saint-Denis Meeting, 11-13 February 2011

Common Statement
We, the student and precarious workers of Europe, Tunisia, Japan, the US, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru and Argentina, met in Paris over the weekend of the 11th-13th of February, 2011 to discuss and organize a common network based on our common struggles. Students from Maghreb and Gambia tried to come but France refused them entry. We claim the free circulation of peoples as well as the free circulation of struggles.

In fact, over the last few years our movement has assumed Europe as the space of conflicts against the corporatization of the university and precariousness. This meeting in Paris and the revolutionary movements across the Mediterranean allow us to take an important step towards a new Europe against austerity and the revolts in Maghreb.

We are a generation who lives precariousness as a permanent condition: the university is no longer an elevator of upward social mobility but rather a factory of precariousness. Nor is the university a closed community: our struggles for welfare, work and the free circulation of knowledge and people don’t stop at its gates.

Our need for a common network is based on our struggles against the Bologna Process and against the education cuts Europe is using as a response to the crisis.

Foucault/Deleuze: A Neo-Liberal Diagram

Friday, March 9, 2012

Ryerson University, Rogers Communication Centre, room 202

This colloquium brings together some of the most respected and
promising scholars of Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze to discuss
how their work has served to inform a diagrammatic critique of
contemporary political economy, finance capital, and the possibilities
for progressive social change. The colloquium will investigate how
contemporary critics of neo-Liberalism (Stengers, Stiegler, Lazzarato,
Bifo, Esposito, Marrazi and others) have developed new theoretical
trajectories out of the seminal works and posthumously published
interviews, essays, and lectures of Foucault and Deleuze.

Spectacular Capitalism Release Party and Presentation
Saturday June 25th @ 7PM @ X Marks the Bökship
210/ Unit 3 Cambridge Heath Road London E2 9NQ

Over the past forty years the ideas and practices of Guy Debord and the Situationist International have become a constant reference point for those involved in radical politics, the arts, and cultural theory. Despite this ubiquity Debord’s work has been reduced to a palatable cliché rather than being used as a tool for crafting an ongoing practice of critique and engagement. Come on join us to celebrate the release of Richard Gilman-Opalsky’s new book, Spectacular Capitalism: Guy Debord and the Practice of Radical Philosophy, as we excavate this potential from the historical wreckage.

Drawing on the work of Guy Debord, Gilman-Opalsky argues that the theory of practice and practice of theory are superseded by upheavals that do the work of philosophy. Spectacular Capitalism makes the case not only for a new philosophy of praxis, but for praxis itself as the delivery mechanism for philosophy – for the field of human action, of contestation and conflict, to raise directly the most irresistible questions about the truth and morality of the existing state of affairs.
