Online discussion with ADRIAN GRAMA și ȘTEFAN GUGA /

Wednesday, 10 of February, at 7 pm.

Moderator: Alex Cistelecan

At first glance, it would appear that debates about forces and relations of production, and their mutual relationship, which were once fundamental concepts of historical materialism, have by now all but disappeared from contemporary socio-economic discourse and, implicitly, from the socio-economic reality itself. And yet, their active presence is felt as soon as we scratch a bit the surface of today’s reality.

Classless train: technology, infrastructure and capitalist ecomodernization

Online lecture by NATALIA BUIER /

December 10th, at 7pm.

Moderator: Dana Domșodi

Technology and its triumphalist reprezentation together with technologic progress represent not only defining elements of the modern imaginary, but also central pieces in the political anticapitalist repertoire. When talking about ecological crisis, labor emancipation or social-democrat measures designed to contain and mitigate the structural crises of global capitalism, technology always appears as a restraining tool of present contradictions. This presentation explores the role of technology in the context of capitalist ecomodernization and its possible functions within anticapitalist ecologist struggles while looking at the high-speed railway project from Spain. Spain, world leader in high-speed railway constructed kilometers, but also in the number of airports and built highway kilometers, has experienced in the last two decades a series of transformations that can serve as a benchmark in evaluating the progressive contemporary proposals such as Green New Deal and the technological modernizations as a solution to the problems of the capitalist society.

Natalia Buier has studied sociology and anthropology. Presently she researches the connection between economic crises, ecological transformations and infrastructure. She is a graduate of the Departament of Sociology and Anthropology from CEU, currently being affiliated to the Max Planck Institute of Social Anthropology. She obtained her Phd. at CEU with a thesis on historical memory and labor movements in the Spanish railway system.

The online presentation of the two projects represents an opportunity to discuss extensively and in an appropriate framework about their cultural and personal foundations. At other times, they aim to present to the general public other visual materials that formed the basis of the artworks.

AI Commons

Online lecture by Oana Mateescu /

November 27th, 2020, at 7 pm.

In 2019, Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiels made waves by stating that “AI is literally communist” while a few years earlier the accelerationist philosopher Nick Land set out to demonstrate “the teleological identity of capitalism and artificial intelligence”. Few other recent technologies have exercised so much ideological fascination, not to mention inspiring an ever-growing output of policy papers on governance and ethics. This talk maps out some of the key issues in contemporary debates that project the political economic future of AI beyond the current moment of platform capitalism. It reviews the positions of left accelerationism, postcapitalism and fully automated luxury communism, focusing on the major blind spot: ownership and control of the means of production. It concludes by emphasizing the increasing push towards imagining AI as commons, while acknowledging the ease with which tech platforms can stimulate open-source AI tools and re-appropriate their products.
