Common |Resistance |Independence |Exodus

Common -resistance, independence, exodus- is a political inquiry journal 
that is born during the crisis, during the global tsunami. We have set this 
journal as a dispositive to investigate the present time in the framework 
of the economic crisis that we are experiencing, looking for some 
directions of political action, measuring a new temporality and discovering 
the mutations of behaviour and imagery. The journal forces us or, as you 
prefer, facilitate us to think collectively about the phase; identifying 
the common feature of the time we are living in, looking for a sense that 
enables us to understand the contingency, using it as a effective compass 
for the political action.

The field of education, the process of impoverishment in terms of 
perspective and future for the young generation, are the research fields 
for the debut of Common. In the epoch of cognitive capitalism, in an 
apparent paradox, it seems that the governance of the productive forces 
passes through a sort of war on knowledge. Starting from inquiring the 
biggest student movement in Italy and Europe since 1968, this issue is an 
attempt to analyze the new political anthropology within the temporality of 
the movement, its discontinuity and challenges.

ÂIn the backgroundÂ, Âin figura and Âlines of flight are the three main 
sections that compose Common. The methodology of inquiry, the themes 
treated in this issue, such as institutions, self-education and common, are 
dispositive to strengthen our resistance, to organize our independence, to 
defend our exodus.
