Whoever shoots first loses

"Krytyka" says the protests in Ukraine should make the EU realize it has a global mission; "Prostory" documents the Maidan; "Osteuropa" warns it's high time to focus on the Polish extreme Right; "New Eastern Europe" locates the last frontier of Kundera's Central Europe; "Free Speech Debate" says hate speech bans have no place in fully fledged democracies; "Spilne" anticipates a socialist moment in the western system; "Merkur" analyses the capitalist persona: from civilizing force to the root of all evil; "Kulturos barai" ponders how to survive technology; "Revolver Revue" refuses to forget the Jews lost to the Nazis but erased under Czech communism; and "Dilema veche" asks who's afraid of Romanians and Bulgarians?

Articles published in Eurozine


Tatiana Zhurzhenko

The geopolitics of memory

The controversy around the statue of the Soviet soldier in Tallinn in April 2007 provided a striking demonstration that memory politics is less about the communist past than about future political and economic hegemony on the European continent. [Swedish version added] [more]

18.06.2013


Nancy Bauer, Johanna Sjöstedt

What is feminist philosophy?

Nancy Bauer talks about what attracted her to the field of philosophy and what made her remain there. Sjöstedt and Bauer also discuss Simone de Beauvoir, the role of scepticism in modern feminism and the thin line between world-changing philosophy and dogmatism. [more]

08.03.2013


Johanna Sjöstedt

The vertigo of scepticism

Introduction to a conversation with Nancy Bauer

Johanna Sjöstedt introduces her conversation with Nancy Bauer by explaining why Bauer is interested both in exploring the potential of a genuinely philosophical feminism and paving the way for a feminist critique of the philosophical tradition. [more]

08.03.2013


Lisa Karlsson Blom, Mikela Lundahl

Haunted museums

Ethnography, coloniality and sore points

The troubled relationship between modernity and its colonial past haunts the ethnographic museum. But do new museums of world culture provide a plausible alternative? Or do they achieve little more than securing their own survival? [more]

18.12.2012


Göran Dahlberg, Martin Engberg

"Media change is a slow process"

Glänta and Ord&Bild, Sweden

A long-standing media diversity policy in Sweden means journals such as "Glänta" and "Ord&Bild" enjoy an exceptional degree of stability. The question is how, amidst the massive changes affecting other media, they can turn the particular character of the cultural journal into a strength. [more]

12.09.2012


Mikela Lundahl

The simple Gothenburger

Colonial elisions in the Swedish self-image

The re-launch of an historical merchant ship was supposed to promote Sweden's image as reliable trading partner. But the failure to acknowledge the colonial involvements of the ship's former owner suggests a less flattering story, writes Mikela Lundahl. [more]

13.07.2012


Klas Rönnbäck

Traces of ignominy

Gothenburg's French block and Sweden's hunt for colonies

Gothenburg's Franska tomten neighbourhood takes its name from a French warehouse established in the eighteenth century through a colonial trade-off between the French and Swedish crowns. Today, the name's origins are largely forgotten, writes Klas Rönnbäck. [more]

13.07.2012


Johan Frederik Hartle

Radical chic? Yes we are!

Ever since Tom Wolfe in a 1970 essay coined the term "radical chic", upper-class flirtation with radical causes has been ridiculed. But by separating aesthetics from politics Wolfe was actually more reactionary than the people he criticized, writes Johan Frederik Hartle. [more]

23.03.2012


Michael Azar

The stranger, the mother and the Algerian revolution

A postcolonial reading of Albert Camus

On Thursday 7 November, Albert Camus would have turned 100. The existential themes of his most famous book, "The Stranger", hide Camus' critique of French rule in Algeria. Yet Camus never entirely renounced the civilizing premise of colonialism. The reason lies in his relation to his mother, writes Michael Azar. [more]

20.02.2012


Tobias Hübinette, Catrin Lundström

White melancholia

Mourning the loss of "Good old Sweden"

Sweden's post-war image as frontrunner of egalitarianism and antiracism contains more than a trace of national and racial chauvinism. As myths of the better Sweden fade, both Right and Left are consumed by "white melancholy". [more]

02.05.2012


Michael Azar

Presente!

Western martyrdom and the politics of memory and death

What is the connection between the mediaeval hunt for relics and the idolization of Benno Ohnesorg? Or between Cromwell and Nietzsche? Western ideologies of martyrdom are active to this day in instrumentalizing the dead for the purposes of the living, writes Michael Azar. [more]

07.07.2011


Trond Lundemo

Charting the gesture

Trond Lundemo describes the complicated endeavours of various technologies, from the early days of chronophotography to today's 3D blockbusters, to capture and classify gestures and movement. Beyond "Avatar", what are the biopolitical implications of "motion capture"? [more]

21.06.2011


Alyson M. Cole

Embittered subjects

The new politics of blaming the victim

The phrase "blaming the victim" was originally intended to critique the attribution of social disadvantage to "inherent faults"; now, however, it has come to mean the condemnation of self-designated "victims" as manipulative. An analysis by Alyson M. Cole. [more]

09.02.2011


Suren Pillay

(The picture)

Mixing fact and fiction, Suren Pillay tells a compelling story about journalistic ethics. A photographer takes a picture of a young man throwing a petrol bomb during a 1985 township riot and ponders over the possible consequences of publishing the photo. [more]

19.10.2010


Cristina Masters

Cyborg soldiers and militarized masculinities

Increasing military interest in the body cancels the transgressive potential of the cyborg. Where humans become the weakest link in contemporary warfare, the cyborg represents a desire for total masculinist domination. Machines, not human bodies, are now the subjects of the text. [more]

20.05.2010


Camilla Flodin

Art and threatened, threatening nature

Adorno has been accused of elitism and ineffectuality, yet his ideas about art and nature gain new relevance as the environmental crisis forces us to rethink how we live, writes Camilla Flodin. [more]

16.03.2010


Jürgen Trittin

Ecological materialism

How nature becomes political

The ecological reform of the global economy must bring on board those with no interest in preserving nature per se. The more "nature-oriented" a demand is, the less likely it is to be realized and the more catastrophic the consequences will be. [more]

11.02.2010


Karl Palmås

Bodies without Bodhis

The shot putter is the origin of movement while the surfer enters a movement that already exists. For Deleuze, therein lies the difference between traditional and new sports. Karl Palmås rides this wave of thought towards a philosophy of surfing. [more]

13.11.2009


Dave Boothroyd

The ends of censorship

As one type of censorship comes to an end, a new one is in the making, writes cultural theorist Dave Boothroyd. The power wielded by corporations such as Network Solutions or YouTube produces a new form of subjectivity characterized by self-censorship. [more]

26.05.2009


Leonard Lawlor

A new possibility of life

In their efforts of marketing and conversion, both globalization and the religious are forms of total war disguised as peace. The total or global nature of this disguised war leads to what Leonard Lawlor calls "the problem of the worst". [more]

11.03.2009


Cathy Caruth

Lying and history

The existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was a fiction produced to justify the war. Drawing on the thought of Hannah Arendt, Cathy Caruth argues that the fabrication of imagery has a tradition in US politics going back to Hiroshima. [more]

09.03.2009


Christopher Kullenberg, Karl Palmås

Contagiontology

Heineken, Google and Wal-Mart use pattern recognition and computer-assisted predictions of future behaviours to secure their markets. This brings renewed poignancy to Gabriel Tarde's contagion-centric thought, write Christopher Kullenberg and Karl Palmås. [more]

09.03.2009


Christoph Menke

The aesthetic critique of judgement

What's the difference between aesthetic and political judgments? Can an aesthetic judgement be collectively valid? Is there such a thing as an aesthetic community? Christoph Menke returns to Greek drama only to end up in his own reading of modern literature. [more]

09.03.2009


Glänta

Glänta supports the financial sector

The financial crisis has made it clear how vital, yet how fragile, capitalism is. In solidarity, Glänta magazine would like to share its cultural capital. Sponsorship of the financial sector is not an act of charity! [more]

Judy Radul

What was behind me now faces me

Performance, staging, and technology in the court of law

Is it possible to imagine a court, guided by justice and law, taking into account the new "politics of representation"? [more]

02.05.2007


Louise du Toit

Feminism and the ethics of reconciliation

The failure of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission to do justice to women rape victims was not a simple oversight but is constitutive of the symbolic order dominating the political landscape of "liberal democracies". [more]

26.06.2007


Andrzej Tichy

The scream of geometry

(modified excerpts)

"How can these cities, villages, and their people exist? How can they stand there selling tomatoes and speaking their language and drying their laundry without considering the infinite number of other places where someone else is standing, selling tomatoes or potatoes and speaking their language and drying laundry?" [more]

Roy Ben-Shai

Living without

On the moral philosophy of Jean Améry

For their testimonial value, Jean Améry's writings are obligatory reading for anyone interested in studies of the Holocaust. But Améry can and must also be read as philosophy, argues Roy Ben-Shai. [more]

Esra Akcan

Melancholy and the "other"

Freud analyzed melancholia as the ego's internalization of the lost object, and thus the loss of ego itself. Can the architecture of the "geographic other" be read for the symptoms of melancholy? [more]

And Thus Began the Fall of the Empire

Multitude and Movement in Genoa

On the barricades you do no longer find an avant-garde, but a multitude. In Genoa Antonio Negri saw this new proletariat, but also the ghosts of the past – a political Left too embedded in the systems of control and power. [more]
