In „Brexit and the rise of contemporary autochthonic political projects of belonging“ Nira Yuval-Davis discusses the results of the Brexit referendum in the context of the more general rise of autochthonic political projects of belonging in Europe. These can be seen as an attempt to solidify the local in response to the global around elastic notions of belonging, which divide the world to ‘us’ and them. The double crises of governability and governmentality as a result of neoliberal globalisation, itself in crisis, have triggered the growth of such movements everywhere. In Europe there is also a growing sense of collective racialized existential anxiety that securitisation technologies have only intensified. The lecture will illustrate these issues mainly in relation to Britain where technologies of everyday bordering have paved the way to the historical victory of the ‘leave’ campaign in the Brexit referendum.

Occupy, Resist, Produce, Oliver Ressler’s series of films developed in collaboration with the sociologist Dario Azzellini over the past two and a half years, focuses on the rare, better-organized cases of factory occupations in Europe where the purpose of the struggle is to bring production under workers’ control. The workers take the initiative and become protagonists, building horizontal social relations on the production sites and adopting mechanisms of direct democracy and collective decision-making.

The first film “Occupy, Resist, Produce – RiMaflow” (34 min., 2014) deals with the RiMaflow factory, a former car parts production site in Milan which now applies the concept of an “open factory”. “Occupy, Resist, Produce – Officine Zero,” (33 min., 2015) shows the transformation of a factory in Rome once specialized in maintenance and repair of sleeping cars into an eco-social factory. Officine Zero literally means “Zero Workshops”: “zero bosses, zero exploitation, zero pollution”. The most recent film in the cycle, “Occupy, Resist, Produce – Vio.Me.” (30 min., 2015) will be presented at ephemeropteræ after an introduction by Oliver Ressler.

Vio.Me. in Thessaloniki used to produce industrial glue, insulant, and various other chemically derived construction materials. After the owner stopped paying wages in July 2011 the workers decided to occupy the plant. In February 2013, Vio.Me. began producing organic cleaning products and organic soap and formed a cooperative in order to operate legally. However, Vio.Me. does not operate as a traditional cooperative. The workers do not consider the company their property but a common good that should serve the community. Vio.Me. has “solidarity supporters” paying a monthly fee in advance and getting Vio.Me. products in exchange. The solidarity assembly also supports the workers‘ mobilizations.

Nira Yuval-Davis
In ihrem Vortrag Brexit und der Vormarsch von zeitgenössischen autochthonen politischen Zugehörigkeitsprojekten thematisiert Nira Yuval-Davis die Folgen des Brexit Referendums im Kontext des generellen Aufschwungs politischer Gruppierungen, die nationale Zugehörigkeit in Europa betonen. Diese versuchen lokale von elastischen und globalen Identitätskonzepten abzugrenzen und teilen die Welt in ein „wir“ und „sie“ ein. Die gleichzeitige Krise von Regierbarkeit und Gouvernementalität (Foucault) als Folge der neoliberalen Globalisierung, welche sich selbst in der Krise befindet, haben überall das Aufkommen solcher Projekte stimuliert. Ein wachsendes Gefühl von kollektiver, rassifizierter, existenzieller Angst wird in Europa durch den undurchsichtigen Wertpapierhandel zusätzlich intensiviert. Der Vortrag setzt sich hauptsächlich mit Themen in Verbindung mit Großbritannien auseinander, wo alltägliche Abgrenzungsmethoden zum Wegbereiter für den historischen Sieg der „Leave“-Kampagne im Brexit Referendum wurden. Nira Yuval-Davis ist Gastprofessorin und Direktorin am Research Centre on Migration Refugees and Belonging (CMRB) an der University of East London.

Oliver Ressler
Oliver Resslers Filmserie „Occupy, Resist, Produce”, die in den letzten zweieinhalb Jahren in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Soziologen Dario Azzellini entstanden ist, fokussiert sich auf die seltenen Fälle von gut organisierten Fabrikbesetzungen in Europa, welche das Ziel verfolgen, die Produktion unter die Kontrolle der ArbeiterInnen zu bringen. Dabei setzen ArbeiterInnen die Initiative und werden zu ProtagonistInnen, etablieren horizontale Beziehungen und übernehmen direktdemokratische und kollektive Mechanismen zur Entscheidungsfindung. Der neueste Film der Reihe, „Occupy, Resist, Produce –Vio.Me.” (30 Min., 2015) wird im Rahmen von ephemeroptaeræ 5 nach einer Einführung von Oliver Ressler gezeigt.
Der in Wien ansässige Künstler Oliver Ressler produziert Installationen, Projekte im öffentlichen Raum und Filme, die sich mit der Wirtschaft, der Demokratie, der Erderwärmung, Formen des Ungehorsams und gesellschaftlichen Alternativen beschäftigt. Er war der erste Gewinner des neu etablierten Prix Thun for Art and Ethics Award 2016. Ressler vorbereitet gerade große Einzelausstellungen für die SALT Galata in Istanbul und das MNAC – National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bukarest vor.
