Each One, Teach One
Theory Tuesdays
Philip Matesic

Production, Capital and Language (Part I of II)

These two sessions* propose a transversal reading of three texts on the topic of relations between production, capital and language. Together the texts form a rhizome as a map of shared knowledge between practice and theory, rather than contrasting theses to be juxtaposed, and build on the intersection between two major discourses linked to economic theories: Marx's critique of political economy and Freud's psychoanalysis.

During this first session we will examine Christian Marazzi and his scientific analyses of capital and it's affects.

*Both sessions are proposed by Dimitrina Sevova.

Christian Marazzi
"Starting from Work," in id., Capital and Affects: The Politics of the Language Economy, Semiotext(e) / Foreign Agents, 2011, pp. 17-66.
