So the terrain of struggle shifts with feedbacks to strategies. New orderings of the past, the emergence of digital memory — no more liberatory than prior regimes — enmeshed in networked control and capitalist capture (shift from visibility-discipline to neuro-modulation as value management). We affirm an exit from capitalist value that is both collective and involved in the intensive construction of abstract diagrams of political and psychic singularisations. Within and against neoliberal accumulation, its prosumers, and cults of individuality and spectacle, a constant circulation of bodies. Isn’t this why Proust returns, his style, his assemblage? Guattari links assemblages to style. To construct an experimentation in style that queers digital control to the threshold of exit from semiocapitalism (Berardi), pursuing diagrams for an anti-fascist life.

I think of my brother Saleh Asadi, who lives in Palestine-Israel. I think of his family and their relation to Gaza, to Hamas, to struggle and the histories of dispossession and murder. Will there be a shift in policy? By all indications Obama has affirmed zionism. Where will the new media awareness of the ongoing horrors of that death camp they have reduced Gaza to take the different movements for justice and equality? How will the boycott of Israel–economic? cultural?–effect these struggle in Palestine? What infrastructures of hacking can common resources affirming these struggles? Equality understood as sexual, gendered, raced, economic, and material. To turn then our attention to the world. What do we see? The rise of Isis has been decried in the LRB as the birth of a terrifying nation but it is being hailed as an exit from the west by some diasporic Muslims here in East London. We see the disporportionate death and destruction visited upon the people and lived space of Gaza.

This must stop? But how?

We believe that it is important to engage in this anal- ysis because the struggle over “reproduction” is central to every other struggle and to the development of “self- reproducing movements,” that is movements that do not separate political work from the activities necessary to the reproduction of our life, for no struggle is sustainable that ignores the needs, experiences, and practices that re- producing ourselves entails. Moreover, the intensification and institutionalization of the global economic crisis poses with new urgency the necessity to construct an alternative to life under capitalism, beginning with the construction of more autonomous forms of social reproduction, for ev- ery day it becomes evident that neither the state nor the market can guarantee our survival. Thus, as people who are implicated in reproductive work (which we all are) we are eager to share ideas, questions and research with all those who are involved in social movements seeking to transform not only reproductive labour but also work in general and the home.

The School for Study
Announces

‘Organisation Studies: the 2013 residential seminars’
Hosted at the Performing Arts Forum
St Erme, France

May 6-10, 2013

The School for Study is a project originating with a collective of scholars and teachers at the Queen Mary School of Business and Management, at the University of London in the UK. The collective developed ‘within and against’ the university, within and against the disciplines, and within and against institutional pedagogy and research. At the same time our collective developed ‘with and for’ study, with and for collectivity, and with and for ‘becoming student.’ The School operates not just as a collective but as a pedagogical troupe, developing, rehearsing, and presenting ensemble forms of teaching that lead to forms of study.

The weeklong programme of teaching at the Performance Arts Forum, in St Erme, France (http://www.pa-f.net/) will be structured into two, two-day blocks with Wednesday devoted to the organisation of a publication based on the week, led by PAF’s Marten Spanberg. Each teaching day will be collectively led by School members and based around a series of theoretical themes and thinkers. Participants must signup for the full five days. The cost per day is 32 euros for room and board. There is no tuition fee. Registration is by email to: The deadline for registration is December 31st.

Participating Members of the School:

Professor Denise Ferreira da Silva is Chair in Ethics, Dr. Amit Rai is Senior Lecturer in New Media, Professor Gerard Hanlon is Chair in Organisational Sociology, Dr Brenna Bhendar is Senior Lecturere in Law, all at Queen Mary, University of London. Valeria Graziano and Tim Edkins are researchers at Queen Mary. Professor Avery Gordon teaches at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Professor Stefano Harney teaches at Singapore Management University.
