Networks for a R-evolution
27 to 29 of October 2011 - Barcelona*
**Three days to think about what the Internet has done for us, and what we
can now do for it ;-).*
2011 is the year when the consciousness of a global network has
emerged. The massive and strategic use of social and digital networks
has allowed the movement of citizen empowerment to step up a notch,
and has facilitated a viral uprising of civil society in many parts
of the world. The struggles to defend the Internet have shown to be a
fertile breeding ground for such uprisings.

"Exposes the interests of the United States in the war against narco-trafficking." - Arturo Rodríguez García, Proceso.
"Berger spins out political parodies...to an audience eager for his lampoons." - Maddie Oatman, Mother Jones
Filmmaker Greg "Gringoyo" Berger and other collaborators will present the films. Co-Presented by El Museo del Barrio.
Filmmaker, journalist, and self-proclaimed “recovering documentary filmmaker” Greg Berger (known in Mexico as “Gringoyo”) has spent the last three years making satirical comedies about the Mexican War on Drugs. In the process, he has also documented the rise of the largest mass movement against the Drug War since Richard Nixon’s 1971 declaration. Disgusted by the absurdity of the War on Drugs, Berger stopped making documentary films for television and started making short satires distributed online through the website Narco News.
Spectacular Capitalism Release Party and Presentation
Saturday June 25th @ 7PM @ X Marks the Bökship
210/ Unit 3 Cambridge Heath Road London E2 9NQ
Over the past forty years the ideas and practices of Guy Debord and the Situationist International have become a constant reference point for those involved in radical politics, the arts, and cultural theory. Despite this ubiquity Debord’s work has been reduced to a palatable cliché rather than being used as a tool for crafting an ongoing practice of critique and engagement. Come on join us to celebrate the release of Richard Gilman-Opalsky’s new book, Spectacular Capitalism: Guy Debord and the Practice of Radical Philosophy, as we excavate this potential from the historical wreckage.
Drawing on the work of Guy Debord, Gilman-Opalsky argues that the theory of practice and practice of theory are superseded by upheavals that do the work of philosophy. Spectacular Capitalism makes the case not only for a new philosophy of praxis, but for praxis itself as the delivery mechanism for philosophy – for the field of human action, of contestation and conflict, to raise directly the most irresistible questions about the truth and morality of the existing state of affairs.
