Revolution from the Kitchen: Witches and Work
As part of the biennial Alt_Cph 20, Patterns in Resistance, the
collectives YNKB, ANA and Salon Hysteria presents a conversation
between Silvia Federici and Nazila Kivi on Witches & Work; on
Revolution from the Kitchen; on utopias and colonizations of care.
This talk will take its starting point in the Danish midsummer
tradition of ritualistic witch-burnings. Departing from Silvia
Federici’s work in ‘Caliban and the Witch – Women, the Body and
Primitive Accumulation’ (2004), the talk will center around the
persecution of women*and others deemed witches and how it connects to
the emergence of capitalism and the subordination of reproductive work.
We will touch on Silvia Federici’s works on Wages for Housework and
Counterplanning from the Kitchen and bring back still relevant
reflections on work, reproduction and the dismantling of the
capitalist-patriarchal system that keeps affecting us all, especially
in times of distress.
