Indebted Citizenship, an interview series conducted by Andrea Mura

with David Harvey and Rosi Braidotti

This interview series - Indebted Citizenship, aims to help framing the context of crisis and austerity.

These two interviews, respectively with David Harvey and Rosi Braidotti were recorded as part of the editorial project led by Andrea Mura with openDemocracy: Teatro Valle – Searching for a European Commons

David Harvey is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). He is a leading social theorist. His recent publications include:

Rebel Cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution (2012)

A Companion to Marx's Capital, Volume 1&2 (2013)

Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism (2014)

In this interview, David Harvey reminds us that Austerity doesn't make sense economically: but it does make sense as a politics of autocracy and the securitized state. Europe should learn from China and Latin America. The interview was recorded at Teatro Valle during an event, Spatial Struggle, arisen from the joint initiative of Teatro Valle Occupato and the Oecumene Project.

Rosi Braidotti is a Philosopher and Distinguished University Professor at Utrecht University as well as director of the Centre for the Humanities in Utrecht.She recently published The Posthuman (Polity Press, 2013).

Rosi Braidotti here reminds that effective intersectional analysis involves a recognition that advanced capitalism has given us endless subjective differing as process, disengaged from revolution.
