Italian Autonomia Movement \\\ Claire Fontaine

We are in the third week of the Lyotard reading group. This week we began discussing the 1970s Italian Worker's Movement Autonomia in relation to the book Libidinal Economy. These topics will be addressed by Claire Fontaine when they arrive at the end of October.

Autonomia was an experiment with politics as non-unified, non-hierarchical; a new working class of workers against work, or at least trying to reduce it. The struggle of these workers was not for better conditions, but for a redefinition of work. Or rather, to just not work at all in a full-out "Human Strike." --Cassie
