The Housing Question


25.06.2015 l Mobiles Stadtlabor l 19:30 Uhr

Monday 11.11.2013 | IKA

This year’s seminar whas been tracing the transformation of housing as an emancipatory and political project since the 1960s.
We have been acknowledging that housing (1) evolved with the introduction of wage labour, ultimately triggering the radical transformation of the European city during the industrial revolution, (2) that housing has always been an instrument of governmentality of the masses, (3) that housing, as the focal point of reproduction, was always inside of capitalist production and that (4) various different labour movements have used the societal status of housing in order to express their emancipatory and political project.
We will be discussing with our guest what relevance housing still has, in a “society after labour”? What happens to housing whose economy is driven by a new spirit capitalism, and whose dirty industry got outsourced to far away countries and immaterial labour has become the dominant form of production – that is: what happens to the emancipatory and political project of housing when the working class disappears?
