mistertrippy says: October 5, 2011 at 10:45 pm It was bare chested, T-shirts and yellow light reflecting tabards for the three teams this year. In 2009 as far as I recall we were able to get teams of black, white and coloured T-shirts – and yes, the Vilnius anarchists were the ones who’d come dressed in black T-shirts. Definitely a nightmare to referee. I’m not doing it more than once every two years!

Old Rope says: October 5, 2011 at 9:39 pm This sounds like a groove sensation! I’d heard of 3-sided chess, but not football. It also sounds like a nightmare to referee. We probably played something equally chaotic in school, though less formal, just because we played all kinds of crazy rules and numbers in those halcyon days.Did the teams have sexy kits, or was it shirts, skins and skeletons?

mistertrippy says: October 5, 2011 at 4:48 am @ Michael – there was a very interesting discussion of racism in contemporary white radical groups, post-cultural activism in contemporary Belarus, radical activism in New York in the 1960s, the suppressed AfroAmerican history of rock and roll, the theoretical basis of Debord’s Game of War, the revolutions in the Middle East, the role of the psychic worker…. There was a lot! @ Unknown Psychic Worker – That was mainly because I wanted to link back to the older blog and previous event, but didn’t want to spent a lot of time explaining the discussion which was complex and will probably come together collectively from the ongoing discussions by email and in Berlin and elsewhere.

Michael Roth says: October 5, 2011 at 4:21 am Sounds like a good time. I’m honing my 3-sided football skills, but so far I’m the only team member. BTW, what were some to the discussions topics?

The Unknown Psychic Worker says: October 4, 2011 at 11:12 pm for me the greatest thing was the opening of new dimensions in becoming together – especially emotional! interesting that you framed the event as Alytus Biennial rather than DAMTP congress!

mistertrippy says: October 4, 2011 at 10:19 pm We were in a different hotel from 2009, and I was on a different floor from the Vilnius anarchists this time, so I didn’t see whether they had organised an orgy suite this year or not….. But now you’ve made me wonder why I didn’t go up to see if they’d done that. Maybe someone who was on the same floor as the Vilnius anarchists knows the answer and can post it here…. Or maybe the Vilnius anarchists can tell us themselves….

Sexy Robot says: October 4, 2011 at 9:02 pm Can you tell me if the Vilnius anarchists organised an orgy room in the hotel this year like they did in 2009?

“Produce” I feel as doing something with some idea of further use in mind – real evil – no innocence! 0 devaluation of the general intellect 1 I think there is something wrong in it – might be somebody will add more exact note – there is no value in the general intellect because it is “an active, living, impersonal, critical mind in itself” – this is a critique of “abstract knowledge”, it is in itself devaluation… this is what the DAMTP is tending to be about… 0 General intellect is another bullshit – that derives from overestimation of the role of reason. Intellect is what fails the most. I would prefer general mind or conscious – but I dislike also the “general” maybe: common? , shared?, Generated? 0 We welcome doubts! 1 There I remembered our discussion about skepticism – what is about the doubt if communication is not verbal? 1 THEN NON VERBAL DOUBTS! 1 And to come back to the issues of the congress: We’ve had experienced together verbal and non verbal communication We’ve had experienced together panlinguistics and nonlinguistics We’ve had experienced together created situations We’ve had experienced individual and collective skepticisms (or doubts) – mostly addressed to the (mis)concepts (worker, football, (in)comprehensible language/ message, spectacularity of marching, not structured topics, anthem ritual, skepticism itself etc) – this shows nothing but how sick from capitalist relationships we all are…and each in a different way… and substitution of the words would not abolish the skepticism itself, because the words are never adequate to reality . 1 even when sick from these whatever (don’t want to use the word capitalist without brackets or quotation marks anymore) relationships we still mostly think and act within their logic. 1 I do not think we are an organization and I never had any intentions on pushing towards it – but so far we agree on many common things – 1 This is why I started using the word convergents in place of comrades (even when the Czech meaning of the word kamarad is totally apolitical: means: a friend)
1 I am sure we can proceed further on forming the union – the union of multitude of entities is possible even including all skepticisms prevailing, without chairmen, dues – but with solidarity – thanks to all of you for it. 0 This more reminds the also ugly word: network + before I will say: with best wishes one more explanation to zet-english – I wrote this:

We love, live and reject death! But when I read it today I see it maybe means something different than I wanted – the intended meaning was: We love death, we live death we reject death! Or We love and live death and we reject it! 0 …reading all this what I wrote I see – I have some problem with words 1 Rather than make triangular (which is two dimensional) trimensionalisation means three dimensional - going beyond the four dimensional straight jacket into an opening up of layered three dimensional trimensions - so a situation can be understood as having endless sensual dimensions of ever increasing complexity 1 this process involves concentrating and reducing one aspect of activity or work to zero dimensions eg point or event or letter

ber) its fucked up (differently than appealed FUCKING UP! From the Alytus slogan). I imagine joining beings for some reason and, for the duration of the reason without duty to follow the decisions in the moment they start to sound odd. No feedback responsibility! 0 General strike is a full scale and global refusal from participation in exploiting models. 1 This is too abstract and it would sink into endless debates where exploitation starts…. “when anarchists will start to tolerate each other – they will start to tolerate all people”. I think there is pretty enough to fight a wish to participate in capitalist mode of production, what is a biggest exploitation mechanism at present moment. 0 HA ! Here I must say that capitalism is dead and todays exploitation mechanism

deserves also a different name – not even the different adjective like corporational , If to use something from past terms then maybe more suitable would be:neofeudalism, or: neoslavery, or: globalslavery (with mostly hiden masters). The history coming back, trying to apply the seemingly forgotten models, using the technologies and psychological knowledge of today. So: slavery supported by slaves, participating collaborating, involved with keeping the system (under different names and different cover ideas) running. 0 psychic worker – that is a possible word to identify ones activities with 1 psychic worker is simply the producer of the meaning and differs from those who manage, own, simulate the meaning. I myself have distrust in the coept of “to identify with” - it has very strong dependence on bourgeois cultural system –
,

to always to identify with some models and to play some role… I would take the concept psychic worker as a key concept to understand the mechanisms proceeding in the capitalist system of production of meaning – there I found myself located after many years of trying sincerely play the role of an artist and a teacher. 1 I agree with mistrust to “identify with” 0 I also mistrust to “production of meaning by the psychic workers – maybe “attempt to search for meaning” 0 Also start hating the word production – that is the real evil. 1 This is very basic word and it differs from the machine called “capitalist mode of production” (that what leads towards gaining a profit). 0

temporal. In an authentic search for authenticity you seem to forget that you are not authentic... Capitalism and Communism being flip sides of the same coin is a basic "truth". Preventing Marxism from thinking it is superior. The coin being "materialism" itself. A "deadend' that has held us back for many years. b.m. Surplus culture (whatever it is intend to mean) doesn’t fit to be substituted for bourgeois culture. Bourgeois culture is surplus in general, but surplus culture would be something to damage that bourgeois (or White, or serious) culture. Also similar effect could be reached totally striking any appearance of cultural (or that of civilization...again White) trace. Neither Black Power nor White Power is not to mean as only connected to skin's colour - that problem is much more complex - the problem is in s.c. White and eurocentrist civilization which is widely exported to the third world as well and everything gets even much more messed up. Today Black and white contrapositioning is getting much closer to the class conflict than ever before. The search for the meaning by using language as a systematic basis and continuously being lost in the meanings of the particular words - that is what the consuming of bourgeois culture is all about (the same is with other non verbal institutionalized cultural spheres), while the production of meaning tends towards demand to control the means of production; first term is about the respect to authorities, the second one is ignorance towards them; first is related towards individualization, while the second is open also towards collective attempts. Eurocentrist axis in the search for the meaning ...and particularly the symbolic forms of that "knowledge' that is what mostly misleads... doubt has only individual sense in the process of the search of the meaning, but it has a striking effect in the process of production. That was also the way how crusaders invaded the indigenous people they imposed the symbolic meaning to everything what surrounded those people...that is what the culture is about...search for the meaning has no sense anymore - its time to get rid of it...what does it means when you refuse from the spoiled words and choosing or inventing the new - the clean - ones ...very soon it will be spoiled in the same way

echos Bacon's concern, criticising the the real life greedy merchant bankers (finance capital) process. in a similar way, with his cognitarians replacing Bacon's noblemen (http://thenewobjectivity.com/pdf/marx.pdf) and gentlemen. Certainly Paul Virno poses an interesting Art precisely emerges with the renaissance, problem at the end of his text General with the rise of the bourgeoisie and the Intellect in Lessico Postfordista: identification of the artist as the goriginator of the work of art, whether they call Finally, our question is whether the peculiar themselves Bellini or Raphael.

0[Andrius] The cognitariat seems to echo Richard Florida's propositions for the 'creative class', which are described by him as the main motor for revitalizing capitalism - ultimately in the form of gentrification. This curator appeared on the public sphere at the time between the dot com bubble in 2002 and the following house market 'crash'. Florida is quoted by mayors of Berlin, Detroit, Chicago etc. In my view, without recognizing the role of 'creatives' as such (often unconscious) agents, and inventing terminology for disparate political, financial, cognitarian classes, the possibility of grasping one's own function in complex social relationships is postponed. I also see Dovile's and Kasparas' responses simplistic. 'The uncontrollable alternative', if you put it together with claims for preserving European gems from sonamed financial class, sounds rather strange... I would recommend watching Pier Paolo Pasolini's 'Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom', 1975 (http://www.imdb.com/title/ tt0073650/) - at this point I realize it would have been a good inspiration for a discussion in Alytus. The general intelect, in my opinion, does not begin and end with ourselves. Ourselves (in Kasparas' response) seem to stand for the preservation of certain privileges in a highly segregated world, such as those called 'creative autonomy outside of the realm of capital' - what are they eventually? Even if one thing is to live with dignity (in search for a better word) and quite different to ignore the persisting racism of Europe. The general intellect includes the whole human history and our particular place in it: both spatial &

AGAINST BIFO, SCEPSI AND FURTHER EUROCENTRISM

the case, I would be grateful for their explanation of this Cognitarians) in the creation of a dystopia such as experienced across Europe during much of the twentieth limitation. century. Whilst the capitalist system - as a world system - is shaking with the impact of the crisis, there is no reason to believe that the EU "is on the verge of a final collapse" - on the contrary, it seems that the Eurozone will become more tightly controlled by Germany and France. Meanwhile the European External Action Service is approaching its first birthday as an EU I agree wholeheartedly with Redas that the loss of the erotic and social body can be found in the development of Cartesian thought and the split between mind and body which we started to discuss during the Scepticism debate on Saturday. The advent of the computer technology is simply the industrialisation of what had previously been acheived through handicraft production. I read Bifo's statement as being as much an attempt to organise "cognitarians" whose artisan status is being threatened by Taylorised work processes as anything else. As much an attempt to maintain a separation between the "cognitarians" and the working class as a whole, to maintain a caste separation - with all the privileges which that entails. In this respect the Eurocentrism may well be simply a smokescreen encouraging the critical reader to focus on the Eurocentrism - which Redas correctly identifies as bordering on racism - all the better to obscure the intellectual elitism inherent in the document. The use of the term "psychic worker" rather than "cognitarian" is linked to the fact that all work has its psychic aspect. It is linked to an approach which is not rooted in the linear thought which constitute "five centuries of humanist civilization and of scientific revolution" imposed by force of arms by European imperialism on the rest of the world. The discussion of the use of the term worker at the Alytus Bienniale was important, and I understand the well founded reservations expressed. It has been used so much in the past to glorify the position of the worker rather than looking to the supercession of the working class. However, no matter how despised or abused the term maybe, when faced with the intellectual elitism inherent in the SCEPSI statement, I find it a useful antidote to this post modern self-intoxication.

0[Redas] Your new statement [KAFCA:Knowledge Against Financial Capitalism under the umbrella of SCEPSI (European School for Social Imagination)] coincided with our next issue of Art Strike Biennial and the meeting of DAta Miners & Travailleurs Psychique – shortly DAMTP’s [or people in close with agreement to DAMTPs]. As I always had a bunch of disagreements to your statements – this time I must notice it comes even worse. The all older our disagreements on europeancentrist (at some point racist) positions, and also due to prescription of “leading” role to “white” pro-western mode of knowledge and it’s propagators – bourgeois artists, theoreticians etc. – that never were followed by further discussions or even placed as a counter-positions in your well edited and selected “insurrectionist” thought… even your coming couple years ago to Alytus was based not on doing something together, but rather on positioning to be listen… But it was very good we had some discussions – otherwise we would do not bother each other afterwards… I disagree that common sense of sensual-erotic social body could be restored by the specialized theorists, artists, teachers, students and whomsoever – and that is not truth that it was lost because of the “process of virtualization and precarization” prevailing in neoliberal mechanisms – it was lost much earlier and because of the same “the heirs of five centuries of humanist civilization and of scientific revolution”. And they are not “the promise of a future of progress, and freedom” – that’s an opposite. Actually that is the cause of the institutionalized obstacle to prevent the society from real social imagination and to turn it on fetishisation. It is what the bourgeosification is about. What is we (DAMTP’s) are calling for – that is reproletrianization of the social intelligence – the freedom for creation of the meaning without limitation in time and space and without capitalist specializations. You as an academician, or whomever else (in the same order as some queen of England as well) – you[we] all can resign from your/our duties and join together for the striking the system prevailing – nobody knows better the system as people who are involved into it. But instead I see just a call to restore privilegies for European worshipers of the SUN. What also makes distrust to your positions about “defending the social civilization, the legacy of humanistic values, and the pleasure of life” – is that usually your (and that of other SCEPSIs) activities are based on what we call “cultural white supremacist europeancentrist format” – what’s about including the positions of the refugees from Nothern Africa, slavery of Eastern Europeans in the West etc. I am sure you’re accepting only those who meet “the level of civilization” or in a best way what in neoliberalist ideology is called multi-culti – i.e. “civilized savages” [they are usually are much more capitalists then capitalists themselves]. Might be it’s not a best thing to happen that intellectuals and lumpen intermingle for to go looting together, but intermingling of intellectuals with “white“ bourgeoisie in defending of “high values” – that’s much worse…. I think we at DAMTP would arrange a collective resolution addressed towards your upcoming event – not sure how critical it will be, but definitely it will be very skeptic towards your SCEPSI… 1[Dovilė] Sad to read the misinterpretation by DAMPTs on SCEPSI’s statement. If recuperation of “students, researchers, artists, engineers, therapists, teachers“ is already not „reproletrianization of the social intelligence“, then who and how? Is it necessary to write

„algerian researcher“ and „street artist“ to be literally correct and not mixed with „white supremacist“ something „borgeous“? It is something very much mixed in here.
Franco Berardi has not only intelligence and subtle thinking, but charisma of expression, so naturally he didn‘t need specially to ask the audience to listen. Just hard to believe that DAMPT‘s are so much into Mao ideals of doing everything together, like reading one book or listening one song, that even individual speach meets intolerance. Now I understand why we were shooting each other with black color in Alytus – to be more tolerated in conference as guests from North Africa were.

But when I read Dovilė's ability of minority (call response, I feel it missed some key elements of the SCEPSI’s them political avant statement: -garde, call them organic intellectuals, "Interpretation follows semantic criteria in the realm of call them may be conjunction: the meaning of the signs sent by the other as she enters in conjunction with you, needs to be understood by tracing the intention, the context, the nuances and the unsaid, if necessary."

What is disturbing is that this Although the impact of the collapse of the American subprime focus on finance capital as the problem - rather than market is mentioned, it is hard to understand why SCEPSI capitalism as web of social relationships, is often used to focusses only on Europe.The most obvious explanation is a encourage trust in intelligent and charismatic individuals eurocentric outlook. However as Dovilė does not think this is leading a self-styled intellectual elite (here called the

1[Kasparas] I also distance myself from what Redas said and I don't want to be mingled among those criticizing what Bifo does. I think what autonomists do trying to think over the artists situation is not less useful than Art strikes. Moreover, Art strikes despite their magnetism also have their own problems. For example, it is always fun to make demonstrations or to play in concert which is conducted according to a principle "Everyone is an Foreign Office. The EU is becoming stronger, and being artist". On the other hand, there is always a comic moment of promoted precisely as a resolution of the current crisis. Hegelian representation which makes these demonstrations and concerts kind of artificial. As regards Bifo's intelligence, this actually creates a problem: If the focus on Europe is merely accidental, then we could I think in our discussion we must not only search for nonaccept the Eurocentrism as an error, and the document could alienation but also emphasize the material potentiality of a swiftly be superseded. However, if the statement is the worked creative person and to regain our lost possibilities which were out thinking of people of intelligence, I think we can safely recuperated by creative industries, financial capital, interface assume that the Eurocentrism is a central plank of this political etc. Instead of the artist alienation I would better focus on concoction. Whether this is a sincerely held belief in the material exploitation of artist workforce by using the techniques of creative commons and creative industries. These questions remain largely not discussed during the art strikes, but namely these questions, the questions of artists as living labor are most urgent nowadays. Dialectic critique and refusal to create art is not an answer, the problem is in the need to search for subversive acts that undermine capitalist domination. We must search for autonomy inside Empire, to create our free zones not by changing our own consciousness (by singing Art strike anthems instead of Lithuanian or any other imperialist anthem) but by constant insubordination to any subjugation technologies. And of course we cannot forget superiority of European "social civilisation", or merely a that the times they are a-changin' and we cannot always demagogic ploy to rally cognitarians around a red EU define our reality by Maoist or old orthodox Marxist terms. It is flag (Martin has already made one for them: http://martin- not enough to create "proletarian negative" instead of zet.com/en/2003.html). "capitalist positive", it would be more useful to celebrate the dionysian and uncontrollable alternative without any Dovilė refers to some problem about "reading one book or representation. listening one song" but for some reason sees this as linked to "Mao's ideals". I find this odd. All across the world people I completely disagree here with you because you only search have developed ways of producing music in concert, and often for things that compromise the attitude of Bifo. I think he is have structured discussion around critically assessing a completely right when thinking and speaking about the particular text. Indeed conditions of contemporary artist or intellectual, because he is much of European speaking about himself. Should he do better if he spoke about thought has centred hungry children of Africa? Wouldn't it remind the tactics of around one book, the Bono or other noble artists involved in liberating all the world... Bible, the book whose instead of ourselves? Or all those trotskyite revolutionaries very name means the who forget themselves after turning on the BBC News. I book. Meeting the think we must begin with ourselves as collective force shortcomings trying to move out of social factory of late capitalism. The of the SCEPSI’s art sabotage is not about constant reunion with working class statement with criticism who doesn't even know anymore that it is working class, The is not intolerance, it is a art sabotage is about destroying the identity of an artist and response. putting up with the identity itself, especially negative identity, it's about creative autonomy outside of the realm of capital. not for a week, but for life, it's about constant redefinition of value-making process and destruction of the law of value itself. I think General Intellect is about ourselves, about our place simultaneously in and out of the system, and it has a potentiality which yet has to be discussed. 0[Fabian] It is a very weak argument to suggest that anyone is demanding that Bifo speak about hungry children in Africa. The problem is that he is repeating the fictions of the bourgeois revolution. He is defing as a class the 'Cognitarians as "heirs of five centuries of humanist civilization and of scientific revolution" - i.e. the renaissance rediscovery of Cicero and Greek thought, followed by the rise of folk like Galileo and Francis Bacon. So the suggestion that this about "creative autonomy outside of the realm of capital" is a simple fiction. It is not, not even for a second. Perhaps it is woth reading Bacon's "On Plantations" to see how much this father of science is proposing the development of colonies funded by ecological destruction as forests are used to provide timber as commodity. True Bacon calls for these colonies to be run by noblemen and gentlemen rather than merchants - who he sees as simply wanting to make a quick buck. And here Bifo
