Lesung mit Raúl Zelik: We undead of capital?


Kollektivcafé Kurbad, Kassel

Link to event

The undead seems to be taking over our society - an economic model, that is more in the way of health and a good life, the return of fascist monsters, the acceleration of climate change and environmental degradation. Raul Zelik asks, how these developments are related and how they can be stopped. In this search he turns to another undead, who just doesn't want to die: the socialist idea.

Without a strengthening of common property, neither ecological collapse nor the impending fall into authoritarianism can be prevented. The multifaceted crisis requires a major emancipatory counter-draft. Zelik's book outlined, how the left can reinvent itself, what a socialist project must consist of and where social power should come from, to implement such a transformation.
