The themes for this event are previewed in an episode 9 of the Minor Compositions podcast ( ... mpositions), which is a discussion with Tiziana Terranova about her recently released book After the Internet: Digital Networks between Capital and the Common. We cover a range off topics including the shift from the internet as open network to the rise of corporate platforms, the psycho-pathologies of digital culture, and capitalism’s need to continually impose scarcity whenever new forms of social cooperation and commoning threaten its dominance
over social life. What are the possibilities today for using digital tools to build new forms of commons both inside and against, and outside of the walled gardens of the corporate platform complex?
