Due to growing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the “International Meeting on Henri Lefebvre and the Production of Space” has been suspended. The event was originally scheduled to take place from May 27-30, 2020, in Montevideo, Uruguay.
About the event:
The International Network of Studies on the Production of Space (RIEPE), composed of students, teachers and activists concerned with the analysis of Henri Lefebvre’s work, is organizing the “International Meeting on Henri Lefebvre and the Production of Space: Networks of Resistance to Capitalism”, originally scheduled to take place from May 27 to 30 in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The meeting seeks to give continuity to the international seminars “The production of space and the actuality of Henri Lefebvre’s thought” and “International Colloquium The Right to Lefebvre”, which took place in Mexico in 2016 and in France in 2018, respectively. The aim of the meeting is to discuss the legacy of the author’s work and his contribution today to the search for alternatives to the dominant mode of production.
The meeting is structured around five work themes:
- A. The rural-urban relationship and the abstraction of space.
- B. Subjectivation and alienation in the capitalist totality.
- C. State, institutions and daily life.
- D. Social movements, difference and production of space.
- E. (Extra) – Leftist influences and readings.
Thus, the proposed work axes seek to understand how the alienation and reproduction of capital is manifested “spatially” as well as to search for concrete clues to overcome this destructive model of life. These axes are a first attempt to structure a still informal network.
