Nekropolitika slovenske države, 30 let zgodovine

Slovenska nekropolitika deluje s tehnologijami izbrisa, ki se ponavljajo in spreminjajo, hkrati pa vztrajno temeljijo na dekontekstualizaciji. V zadnjem času se je tudi Slovencem nekropolitični akt, ki je bil dolgo časa zadeva “drugih”, začel kazati v novi luči – v obliki počasne smrti. Akumulacija kapitala za potrebe mafijske vlade v zadnjem obdobju živi od nekropolitične počasne smrti njenih prebivalcev.

FUTURE: DECOLONIZING THE WHITE MATRIX OF POWER

These days, the occident’s preoccupation is fatigue: tired of decolonizing universities, monuments, histories, and knowledge. But the white matrix of power is essentially working as a parasitic system: constantly sucking the lives, politics, and future from the “others.” White racism identifies with denial, and this is a key strategy towards racial discrimination and the maintenance of privilege to diminishing responsibility.[…]

This contribution is part of Issue 15: DECOLOMANIA, on art history, the history of politics, and the history of theory: all of them colonized and colonizing, much like our very selves.

East European Feminisms: Interview with Marina Gržinić

The question remains whether European queer politics can be seen without a more precise re-elaboration of the relation between queer – and the other two constructed social categories of nationality, and race? And if we erase race from our critical framework of queer, our conceptualisation of queer (in the relation to nation-State and its processes of racialisations) – wouldn’t our institutionalised, structural and social racism(s) end up naturalising what as feminist thinkers and activists we would wish to denaturalise?

Obvarovati moramo življenja in preprečiti militarizacijo

Marina Gržinić pojasnjuje, kako je globalna pandemija, ki zahteva določene omejitve, sovpadla z nastopom vlade, ki se zgleduje po orbanovi politiki militarizacije in fašizacije družbe. ”A vendar moramo ta dva procesa ločiti – zato je prva zahteva preživeti – ohraniti vsako in čim več življenj.”
