The formation of the modern state is inextricably linked to the expropriation of collective lands, the slave trade and a social economy that assigns women the role of labor producers, forcing them to perform free domestic services necessary for reproduction and support of the nascent system’s labor forces.
In this lecture at Hangar, Center for Artistic Researh, Silvia Federici will analyze the annihilation of different forms of commonality and the exploration and domination of female bodies and knowledge, namely, in the body-territory relationship and its correspondence with artistic production.
