perché non credo più a Macao?

…prima o poi lo scriverò…

gli afterhours un pomeriggio a Macao (Torre Galfa)

è ancora troppo presto per affrontare l’argomento razionalmente, per un periodo ho dato tutto me stesso per Macao. I 10 giorni a Torre Galfa rimarranno una delle esperienze più belle della mia vita, potrò sempre dire che -io c’ero- quella mattina del 5 maggio e sarebbe stato bello esserci ancora ma…

quindi è molto difficile, molto ma molto difficile parlarne al momento

    “How Can Artists Live in a Capitalist Society?”
    Talk con Alan N. Shapiro
    h 19:00 Caffè letterario @M^C^O viale molise 68
    mercoledì 7 novembre 2012

    Alan N. Shapiro(Technologist and Futurist):

    Famous radical thinkers like Noam Chomsky (logical positivist libertarian socialist) and Slavoj Žižek (Hegelian-Lacanian Leninist and simulacrum-Stalinist) – and many others – speak to and of the OCCUPY movement and say “I am against capitalism.” Then they either praise the movement for also being “against capitalism” (Chomsky) or criticize it for not being “against capitalism” enough (Žižek). These thinkers use the word “capitalism” to mean only one thing: the top-down globalized capitalism of the Big Corporations. I am also a critic of the existing society, of the dominant economic system. But I think that it is a conceptual mistake – and a mistake for meaningful practice and action – to call the existing society “capitalist” and say “I am against capitalism.” To do that complete obscures the fact that the word “capitalism” has a second, positive meaning that describes the very force that can fight against Big Corporation capitalism: a decentralized bottom-up entrepreneurial capitalism of artists and creative workers. Influenced by political philosophers like Claude Lefort (leader of the post-Trotskyist group “Socialisme ou Barbarie” who “thought the political”), Albert Camus (hybrid anarchist-liberal thinker of rebellion), and Hannah Arendt (great Jewish thinker of the human condition), I say that what is wrong with the existing society is primarily its totalitarian tendencies, not the fact that it is “capitalist.” And we are now faced with new forms of totalitarianism. And artistic-entrepreneurial capitalism is the force that can fight this system of the Big Corporations and Big Information. Not some imaginary never-will-happen Marxist revolution that was already tried in many countries and failed miserably and led to catastrophes. Artists should not be purists who want nothing to do with “commercialism” and money. On the contrary, artists should fight for their rights to a good economic existence. The role of the democratic state should not be to submit to the will of the lobbyists of the Big Corporations, but rather to “help the little person” – the artists, the homeless, the smallest startup entrepreneurs – to convert her cultural, human, and symbolic capital into monetary capital. Something like an elegantly complex system of the guaranteed income, many different kinds of money and “chips”, and creativity-to-capital conversion and transfer mechanisms. The simulated-centralized liberal democratic state should be balanced by a great deal of power being given to local citizens’ councils, as in the anarchist tradition. I turn for inspiration to the great artist Joseph Beuys. Beuys said that we are living under the oppression of an ideological version of Capital. (Georges Bataille called it the rule of the restricted economy). In a democracy, Beuys says, everyone is an artist, everyone is creative, everyone – as a free being – has her own culture and canon. Human beings are the creators of capital. We must deconstruct the ideological form of Capital (shared by bankers and Marxists), and reconstruct a general economy of capital starting from art and popular culture, from meaningful work, participation, and self-determination.

    Sinceramente io non ho mai creduto a Macao- avevo già bazzicato posti simili tipo Sale e TeatroValle, conoscevo il milieu hipster-nabista che ha costituito il grosso di macao, ho visto i burocrati del movimento milanese spacciarsi per lavoratori dell’arte alla torre alla torre galfa, ho visto birre da 33 cl vendute a 3 euro e rotti, ho sentito gente riempirsi la bocca con cose “L’arte è di tutti, cultura libera, ect…”, salvo poi fare gli spocchiosi a cercare solo i grossi nomi e bollare i gruppi dei ragazzini che volevano suonare come “il solito dilettantismo”…
    DETTO QUESTO, CREDO ANCORA CHE LE RAGIONI CHE HANNO SPINTO MIGLIAIA DI PERSONE SOTTE LA TORRE GALFA SIANO VALIDE E FONDAMENTALI, E CHE QUINDI NONOSTANTE I FALLIMENTI E I TRADIMENTI SIA ANCORA IMPORTANTE LOTTARE E SPINGERE SEMPRE AVANTI.
