Join Silvia Federici at the "Speculation" series at MOMA PS1 for a two-part discussion about the future of the family and reproductive labor and her new book Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle.
On Thursday July 18th, she will host a seminar at 2pm and a lecture at 4pm in collaboration with "Speculations ("The future is ______"): Fifty speculations on the future, as part of EXPO 1: New York" happening May 12 to July 28, 2013. For more information, click HERE.
Silvia Federici, emerita professor of political philosophy and international studies at Hofstra University, is an activist, teacher, and writer will discuss her most recent book Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle (PM Press 2012), a collection of texts written between 1975 and 2010. In this talk she will specifically address social reproduction in an era of globalized capitalism providing a feminist and autonomous Marxist analysis of the ongoing recolonization and decimation of much of the planet. As outlined in Revolution at Point Zero, this process fosters a permanent crisis of reproduction and survival. As women continue to bear the brunt of this onslaught, Federici puts forth a vision of the commons as a site of resistance.
