next:now – Strategies to Resample the Future #3

We’re happy to announce the start of a new series of talk and discussion events hosted by Datacide and next:now at Vétomat Berlin.

The first event is hosted by next:now as part of their Strategies to Resample the Future series on Friday December 7. The second will be hosted by Datacide on Monday December 17.

Strategies to Resample the Future #3

“As the future is not prescribed, and the succession of now and tomorrow is not monolithic or determined, our task consists in distinguishing the layers of futurability that lie in the texture of the present reality and in the present consciousness. (…)
The present depression (both psychological and economic) obscures the consciousness that no determinist projection of the future is true. We feel trapped in the tangle of techno-linguistic automatisms: finance, global competition, military escalation. But the body of the general intellect (the social and erotic bodies of a million cognitarians) is richer than the connective Brain. And the present reality is richer than the format imposed on it, as the multifold possibilities inscribed in the present have not been wholly cancelled, even if they may seem presently inert.”
Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi – Futurability – The Age of Impotence and the Horizon of Possibility (2017)

In this third episode of our exploration of the intersections between possibilities and potency, we will be in the hands of two skippers that really cannot fit in the ordinary: both musicians, both visual artists and both synesthetes.

Strategies to resample the future

„Once upon a time, pop‘s metabolism buzzed with dynamic energy, creating
the surging-in-to-the-future feel of periods like the psychedelic
sixties, the post-punk seventies, the hip-hop eighties and the rave
nineties. The 2000s felt different. (…) Instead of being the threshold
to the future, the first then years of the twenty-first century turned
out to be the ‚Re‘ Decade (…): revivals, reissues, remakes,
re-enactments. Endless retrospection. (…)“
– Simon Reynolds – Retromania (2011)

„In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life
presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything
that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.“
– Guy Debord – Society of the Spectacle (1967)

The past seems to be a main topic in these days.  Where is the border
between transmitting knowledge and being stuck in nostalgia?
Is it still possible to influence reality? If yes, what is doing the
job and what else could be imagined to be adequate and effective?

Druga edycja Warszawskiego Niezależnego Kiermaszu Książek odbędzie się w Klubie Pogłos przy Burakowskiej 12 w dniach 9-10 września 2017. Jeśli piszesz, drukujesz, organizujesz, tłumaczysz, prowadzisz bibliotekę albo coś badasz, tworzysz lub po prostu, tak jak my, lubisz książki, wpadnij wesprzeć nas w działaniach na rzecz niezależnych wydawnictw i książkowej samoorganizacji. Zapraszamy na dyskusje, wykłady, warsztaty i koncerty w trakcie WNKK!

W ubiegłym roku w Kiermaszu udział brały różnorodne grupy z kraju i zagranicy, międzynarodowe kolektywy, migranci i migrantki mieszkający w Warszawie oraz dziesiątki miłośniczek i miłośników książek w każdym wieku. Nie możemy się doczekać, aby tegorocznej jesieni znów się z wami spotkać!

Oprócz wydarzeń związanych z tematyką wydawniczą, kiermasz to także przestrzeń warsztatów oraz spotkań poruszających szerokie spektrum tematów – chcemy oddać głos inicjatywom oddolnym i osobom wykluczanym z dominującego dyskursu //z powodu rasy, pochodzenia, płci, orientacji seksualnej, wieku, ekonomicznych barier lub sprawności//. Pomyślmy wspólnie jak dzielić się naszymi doświadczeniami, aby uczyć się od siebie nawzajem, z szacunkiem dyskutować nad alternatywami oraz spojrzeć krytycznie na współczesną rzeczywistość.

Wciąż niezdecydowani_e? Spójrzcie na tegoroczny program (http://warsawbookfair.esy.es/) i krótką video zajawkę z podsumowaniem WNKK 2016 (vimeo.com/183179046).

Jeśli macie jakieś pytania, chcecie włączyć się w przygotowanie wydarzenia lub pomóc w promocji i organizacji przed i w trakcie samego kiermaszu (np. przy plakatowaniu, przygotowywaniu przestrzeni, opiece nad dziećmi, etc.) piszcie na adres warsawbookfair[at]riseup.net (w temacie wpiszcie: “Pomoc”)

The second edition of the Warsaw Independent Bookfair will take place on September 9 and 10, 2017.

The fair will be hosted by the Pogłos Club (Burakowska, 12) and accompanied by events including discussions, lectures, workshops and concerts. We warmly invite writers and translators, artists and researchers, publishers and librarians (and also those who do not fit into these categories) to join us in promoting and putting into practice the idea of independent publishing and self-organisation. While the focus on publishing remains, this year will also include a series of parallel events on a broader range of topics with the aim of giving voice to the grassroots initiatives and groups so often excluded from the dominant discourse //whether for reasons of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, income or ability.// Let’s think how to share our experiences openly and with respect, make criticisms sharper and clearer and learn to discuss alternatives together.

Last year, the Bookfair gathered dozens of participants from Poland and abroad, migrants living in Warsaw and international collectives. We — both adults and children — had lots of fun and cannot wait to see you this autumn!

Still not sure? Have a look at a short video of the event (vimeo.com/183179046), learn about the venue and see last year’s program (www.warsawbookfair.esy.es).

If you’re interested in getting involved in helping out with the event or participating in the organising process leading up to the bookfair, please get in touch via email at warsawbookfair[at]riseup.net and add ‘help’ in the subject line for details. [Read more →]
