Postcapitalist Politics
: “As we begin to conceptualize contingent
relationships where invariant logics once reigned, the economy loses its
character as an asocial body in lawful motion and instead becomes a space of
recognition and negotiation.”

__Referring to Deleuze
and Guattari’s consideration of desire and power, she distinguishes between de-territorializing
and re-territorializing processes. Yet, while she presents desire as a
deterritorializing force, she also agrees with Foucault, who sees desire as
constituted by sociohistorical power relations, and thus as potentially
compliant with reterritorializations.

"Who are the departed souls to whom this exhibition is dedicated, an
exhibition which opens with a tribute by the conceptual artist
Christian Boltanski to the former miners of the Grand-Hornu collieries
(some of whom, it should be specified, are still living) and closes
with a visit (wanted by Laurent Busine) to the crypt where their
masters are laid to rest, the owners of this site which was formerly a
thriving coal-mine and now a museum of contemporary art? Who are the
departed souls intended to be retrieved from obscurity and silence by
these works of art and these objets de curiosité through the miracle of
their presentation and commentary? Who are the departed souls whose
names and images have been assembled and laid out (along a circuit
where no cadavers or morbid corpses are to be found, however, and where
the focus is on life), objects as diverse in appearance and provenance
as a meteorite from a natural history museum, the relic of a saint or a
pictor classicus selfportrait?

who are these departed souls ‘hidden in the night’, if not the very
‘equal’ of everything - bright or extinguished like a star, simple or
proud as a man – that is no longer of the living world, other than
through lingering memory, image, legend, name or object? Because
although we are all equal before death, in the tragic sense that
nothing and nobody escapes from eternity, the end of all things, we
have to acknowledge that these departed souls – drawn out of the
shadows here – are not all equal before history, which celebrates some
but forgets others. So, side by side with now-defunct emperors, ‘sun
kings’ and captains of industry, we should also acknowledge in the Book
of the Dead the nameless and voiceless, the strays and the accursed –
less glorious, it is true – all waiting for the recognition afforded
them in these songs, tales and pictures. This exhibition A toutes les
morts, égales et cachées dans la nuit is a collection of just such
testimony-givers: these are works created and objects invented for
these nameless ones, the word ‘for’ as interpreted by Gilles Deleuze,
the philosopher of ‘becomings’, when he felt it was necessary to write
for animals, for savages or for the mad, clearly not for their
attention but on their behalf; in the same way as Gustav Mahler put to
music the Kindertotenlieder for dead children."

rabble editor's note
about number of arrests in toronto

Editor's note: 'Roughly 900 people have now been arrested, according to police, after a weekend of mayhem on the streets of Toronto during the G20 Summit. This is now the largest-ever mass arrest in Canadian history. No word on how many charges have been laid. Compare it to this: 497 people were arrested during the ‘October Crisis and the war measures act' in 1970, which came before Canada had a Charter of Rights and Freedoms.'

author, writer and journalist argues that police arrested “the most
important grassroots organizers in the province” on Saturday to try and
discredit them. “Hopefully, the media will smell a rat and start to see
that this whole thing was a setup,” she said, in an interview on Sunday

excerpts from

Seeing It All in Toronto

Still Free, Barely Holding On


My ten-year-old was almost
fucking killed when he was attacked by police in a free-speech zone. My
fourteen-year-old and I were chased for two hours. Does anyone out
there care? ...
I feel nothing but despair.
My friends are being dragged off to left and right, and the world
watches football. I began the weekend juggling for the troops, holding
out flowers, but I end hunted and in tears, paranoid and sad. It feels
like the end. We are still free, but barely holding on. Why do they
hate us so much?

I include no paragraph
breaks or aids for the reader. If you can’t be bothered to read this
sort of thing because it’s too long, go back to your pictures. As an
English teacher, I hate typos, but I’m too tired to polish this. All I
can say is, we were there, we’ve seen it all.

June 26, Saturday: We’ve done family protests in Washington and London,
amongst other places, and even mingled with some serious ruckus in
Buenos Aires. Never have we experienced anything as terrible as in
Toronto today, Saturday, a mile from the G20 perimeter walls. The
Canadians—if these police/soldiers are even Canadian—are far and away
the most vicious of any military we’ve ever experienced. My wife had
scolded me for the risks I took yesterday (Friday) when I was on my own
without the boys (at 6 o’clock today Sebastian typed in a simple google
search: “G20 Toronto” and got a picture of me juggling as the number
one entry—more on that some other time, together with my “I’m not a
brave man but…” speech involving a red flower and me alone against a
double-wall of riot police) and it was Eva-Lynn’s idea that we would
take the children to the protests to experience the peaceful strong
energy we always get at peace rallies.

. Hundreds of police piled up from the south, but once we got to Bloor
and the plain light of the setting sun and people could see police
attacking unarmed citizens, the police slunk off and hid. I never saw
them again. They’re all too afraid to show themselves in small groups,

and between here and Dundas Square not a single one showed his face,

though for a fortnight we’ve seen nothing but them roving the city in

& robbin


of their liberties


We were nice to all the individual security guards keeping
watch over their little buildings all the way to Yonge. With

sidearms and sticks, they seemed by this point sort of cute and
picturesque. We bantered with them as we walked (or limped, in my
case). After brief uncertainty about whether we’d take over Yonge and
Bloor and make our last stand there, we moved south down Yonge,
following a trail of smashed windows from much earlier in the day (not
smashed by our group—though I don’t judge the people who did it; there
was a method to their madness I’ll comment on elsewhere). I wanted to
hold up at Dundas Square, but the front of the group had moved on. I
could no longer walk, and I had to get my fourteen-year-old home, or
maybe he had to get me home. Believe me, he will never be the same.

more from rabble

On his first day as a resident of Toronto, Dan Hamilton was a bystander during a protest when he was caught with his boyfriend in a mass arrest for "breaching the peace". Held for approximately 26 hours, the eighteen-year-old was let out at 3 a.m. on Monday, June 28th, 2010, where rabbletv caught up with him for his story.
