Nina Power - Decapitalism, Anticapitalism, Postcapitalism
SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL - THE NOISE OF BEING Nina Power - Decapitalism, Anticapitalism, Postcapitalism 24 February 2017 - De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, The Netherlands --- Decapitalism, Anticapitalism, Postcapitalism Nina Power discusses the different ways we might conceive of capitalism and the strategies and tactics we can adopt for understanding and subverting it; living differently within and outside it and finally, to behead it. She looks at the ways in which the ruling class seeks to pretend that it is not in charge. Power draws upon revolutionary images of beheadings, both metaphorical and literal, to better show what the ruling class has stolen from the people and how we can get it back by cutting off the head but keeping the body. Nina Power is a cultural critic, social theorist, philosopher and translator. Power teaches Philosophy at the University of Roehampton and Critical Writing in Art & Design at the Royal College of Art. She has written widely on Philosophy, politics, feminism and culture. Some of the publications she regularly contributes to include frieze, Wire, Radical Philosophy, The Guardian, Cabinet, Film Quarterly, Icon and The Philosophers’ Magazine.
