Viewpoint Magazine Reading Group, Meeting 5: Logistics of Power

+ RSVP!

Alden will introduce Alberto Toscano’s "Lin­ea­ments of the Logis­ti­cal State” (https://viewpointmag.com/2014/09/28/lineaments-of-the-logistical-state/) and Deborah Cowen’s "Dis­rupt­ing Dis­tri­b­u­tion: Sub­ver­sion, the Social Fac­tory, and the 'State' of Sup­ply Chains” (https://viewpointmag.com/2014/10/29/disrupting-distribution-subversion-the-social-factory-and-the-state-of-supply-chains/) by briefly situating these two essays within the broader context of the conversations around anti-capitalist counter logistics that have been taking place within the left-communist and anarchist milieus during the last few years. These essays attempt to create different cartographies of what counter logistical praxis means, insofar as charting interventions in global capitalist supply chains calls into question much larger questions about revolutionary agency, sites of production, and organization.
