We breathe in. We breathe out. We will do a close reading of the book »Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation« by Silvia Federici* together. We breathe in. We breathe out. We will deal with the origin and nature of capitalist relations. We breathe in. We breathe out. We will discuss artistic positions which negotiate the following fields: the female body, class struggle from a feminist perspective, the colonized body, the commons, the rebellious bodies and social movements.
