Precarious Worlds: Organising in the realms of reproductive work
A Series of events hosted by Prekär Café in collaboration with Territorio Domestico, Radical Collective Care Practices, Mandelbaum Verlag and

Care and reproductive work assure the functioning and maintenance of our societies. Elderly care, childcare, healthcare, housework, education, cleaning and tidying up – in private and public spaces alike, these forms of work are often invisibilized, unpaid or badly paid, and in the informal sector they tend to be only minimally protected in legal terms, if at all. The organization of this world of work is changing throughout the course of history. How can we transform it based on our needs, and turn it to stand in the way of the reproduction of capitalism?

// PreCarious Worlds #2
// Friday 17th May: Silvia Federici presents her book "Caliban and the Witch"

Caliban and the Witch is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the battle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization.
