Antifa Discussion Series: Community Resistance to White Nationalism

***NEW DATE: Thursday, March 15, 7-9pm

The Antifa Discussion Series is back at Interference Archive to discuss community resistance to white nationalism. Our talk will be fueled by the current exhibition, no. NOT EVER., a multi-media, interdisciplinary, immersive installation that provides an anti-racist, anti-fascist framework for understanding the rise of white nationalism in the current moment. From an intersectional lens, the Antifa Discussion Series is a meeting group that focuses on discussing the purpose, history, theory, and application of Anti-Fascist action. Each meeting centers around a theme. We are a non-cumulative “101” course, meaning that you do not have to know much about the topic to attend.

Breaking the Spell: film screening and discussion on video activism

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Breaking the Spell author Chris Robé presents a visual essay that documents the rise of video activism from the 1960s to the present. Video plays an increasingly important role among activists in the growing global battles against neoliberalism. Subjectivity itself becomes a key terrain of struggle as capitalism mines it through social media sites, cell phone technology, and new “flexible” work and living patterns. As a result, alternative media production serves a central location where new forms of collective resistance can be cultivated.

Wages for Housework: A Conversation with Silvia Federici

Friday, February 9, 2018

How do we understand and value our own reproductive labor? How can we organize around this work in a way that is transformative both of our own lives and builds a collective opposition to a global capitalist system? 
Throughout the 1970s the Wages for Housework movement developed an analysis of women’s reproductive labor. Silvia Federici was a cofounder of the movement, working within the New York Wages for Housework Committee from 1972 to 1977. Interference Archive invites you to join with Federici for a slideshow and lecture addressing the movement in historical context and analyzing its contemporary relevance, followed by breakout groups to address key questions raised and a group discussion.
