[- The Space of Empire

Author: eipcp - European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies

Topic: The new issue of the republicart web-journal is now online!
Keywords: Empire, multitude, Hamburg, Belgrade, political parties, artistic strategies

[ --------------------------------------------- ]

According to one of the theses in Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's "Empire", we have been living since 1989 in an imperial inside that recognizes no outside. This space is characterized by several tendencies: by a transition from discipline to control, by an increasing imperialization of work, by an internationalization of hegemonic politics through the G8 states, transnational corporations and organizations such as the WTO, IMF or the World Bank.
The articles under "Space of Empire" pursue the questions of whether this scenario can be spatially and temporally universalized to such an extent, the significance of the new exterritories in the so-called "War Against Terrorism", and which artistic strategies of reappropriation are being developed within this imperial space.
