Workshop III: ETP European TelePlateaus: PONG. (25.05.2010)


In this third session, another one of the environments of the commons described by Antonio Lafuente, the Body, is covered.

"The session provides an overview of the diverse approaches to the notion of body as well as the possibilities of redefining the commons / pre-commons in a context of increasing global colonizing of affection, relationalities, bodies and spaces.

Antonio Lafuente will present his vision of the Common Body and its development in the affected communities.

Xilemantes MarianoEva (Eva Botella and Mariano López) delve into a cross section of the imponderable and non-appropriative from the pre-commons point of view, and will  introduce the Pre-Commons Manifesto. [download pdf]

The Common Body group will continue following Xilemantes' line. The group will discuss the traditional notions of the body in order to highlight what is not appropriative, which is what can not be defined as anyone’s property. The group will also present a relational body that influences the way the current capitalism assimilates ourselves, giving shape to our affections and desires. Finally, the group will present the Manifesto of the Body (Pre-) Commons".
