Wed 11.21.12 | Berardi on Finance, Poetry, and Autonomia

Franco "Bifo" Berardi, The Uprising: On Poetry and Finance Semiotext(e), 2012






What might finance capitalism have to do with poetry?  And how might resistance to the former come from the latter? Franco "Bifo" Berardi, Italian political philosopher, writer, and media theorist, discusses money, precarious labor in an age of information and heightened alienation, and why a mantra might be a powerful weapon. He also talks about the autonomist movement in Italy in the 1970s and his involvement in the iconoclastic pirate radio station based in Bologna, Radio Alice.
