East: bodies, borders and zonification (2016)

by Tjaša Kancler

The European unification, as Philomena Essed argues, has been foremost a project of whiteness. In a time, when it is said that Eastern Europe no longer exists, when Western Europe is also named “former”, the process of disappearance of certain borders implies its simultaneous multiplication and conversion into zones, border regions or territories. East is today operating as one of them. How, then, the way we conceptualize Europe changes if we rethink the silenced colonial/imperial history of European migration politics through the West-East relation of repetition, together with the coloniality of gender, the control of subjectivity and knowledge, the most extreme forms of exclusion and politics of death today? What potentialities for resistance are coming out from such analysis?

Politika, estetika in demokracija

Nina Cvar, Katja Čičigoj, Marina Gržinić (urednica), Adla Isanović, Sebastjan Leban, Jovita Pristovšek, Šefik Tatlić, Jasmina Založnik

ZRC SAZU, Ljubljana, 2015

Politika, estetika in demokracija je zbornik, nastal iz prispevkov za mednarodni kolokvij z enakim naslovom, ki smo ga leta 2015 priredili na ZRC SAZU v Ljubljani. Organizatorja kolokvija sta bila Filozofski inštitut ZRC SAZU in AVA, Akademija za vizualne umetnosti v Ljubljani. Avtorice in avtorja prispevkov te znanstvene publikacije druži horizont sodobne teorije in filozofije, ne nazadnje tudi kritika globalnega kapitalizma. Ta kritika je nastajala že pred krizo, v obdobju pred letom 2008, ko smo bili med redkimi, ki – kot se je takrat govorilo – nismo videli vseh »prednosti kapitalizma«. Apolitični horizont in divji turbo neoliberalizem, ki ga je mogoče zgoščeno opisati s sintagmo maksimizacija smrti in maksimizacija dobička, kar je Achille Mbembe že leta 2003 imenoval nekropolitika, sta se vkopala pred našimi vrati, medtem ko je pri delavski mezdni večini nekropolitika že v kuhinji. Tako so se začeli celo največji teoretični omahljivci sklicevati na kritiko politične ekonomije in na radikalizirane oblike biopolitike.
