This presentation was part of the round-table “Marginal Notes: Where the next rupture will be” with the participation of Silvia Dal Dosso, Luigi Galimberti, Jota Mombaça and Marco Baravalle, which took place within the framework of the event “Brecha Democrática”, Venice, 10-11 October 2015.

Europa-impero

L’Europa assume i caratteri di un Impero dal punto di vista geografico e politico: al centro di decisione e comando si oppongono le periferie degli Stati membri del sud del continente... Come per ogni Impero, alle singole contee viene rilasciato un margine di autonomia: agli Stati membri si lascia la traduzione delle disposizioni governamentali all’interno dei propri ordinamenti giuridici, il controllo delle frontiere ed il monopolio della forza...

Così alcuni passaggi dell’intervento di Fabio Mengali, attivista di Padova dei Centri Sociali del Nord-Est, nel quale egli ha tentato di dare un quadro del contemporaneo assetto della governance europea e di definire delle linee guida per la pratica della breccia democratica oggi. Il testo completo è disponibile qui.

Questa presentazione si è tenuta in occasione della tavola rotonda “Democratic Breach Today: Brazil and Europe between crisis and rebellion” con la partecipazione di Giuseppe Cocco, Raul Sanchez, Fabio Mengali (in sostituzione di Marta Canino), con la moderazione di Lorenzo Marsili, all’interno dell’evento “Brecha Democrática”, Venezia, 10-11 ottobre 2015. L’intera registrazione video delle tre sessioni è disponibile qui.

 

Un canto di andata e ritorno

Giuseppe Cocco parla del Brasile e delle sue ingiustizie a partire dalle proteste del giugno 2013, forse la più grande mobilitazione di massa della storia del Brasile, e la cui onda lunga si avverte ancora oggi nell’uscita dalle forme di rappresentazione – dal sindacato al partito –  che non rappresentano più le richieste di gran parte del popolo brasiliano e nella creazione di nuove forme di lotta e di vita in ambito urbano.

Tanta Coisa / So Much

Presentation and selection of video-material from Brazil by Luiz Camillo Osorio, curator of the Brazilian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale, which bore the title “É tanta coisa que nem cabe aqui” (“It is so much that does not fit here”).

IT IS SO MUCH THAT IT DOES NOT FIT IN HERE: That is the sentence written in one of a multitude of posters that were occupying the streets during the mass protests of June 2013 in Brazil. The Brazilian insurgence, the Spanish 15-M and the resistances in the margins of Europe and the world do not fit in an exhibition, but the Brazilian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale has opened itself to the multitudes and has allowed the power of these multitudes to break through it.
