• 28.8.15 18h Linker Freitag: Forum sozialistische Industriepolitik I

    Linker Freitag mit Prof. Dr. Heinz Bierbaum, MdL (Saarland)

    Sozialistische Industriepolitik kann vieles bedeuten. Mit Heinz Bierbaum diskutieren wir, was hier und heute darunter zu verstehen ist:

    «Mitarbeiterbeteiligung, die auf eine Demokratisierung der Wirtschaft abzielt, setzt weniger auf individuelle Vermögensbildung als auf eine Mitbestimmung an der Unternehmenspolitik. Sie greift auf die gewerkschaftlichen Forderungen nach Erweiterung der Mitbestimmung zurück. Diese Forderungen konzentrieren sich auf eine stärkere Beeinflussung der Investitionsentscheidungen und auf die Standortpolitik»(Bierbaum, «Eingebunden. Jenseits des Krisenkorporatismus», 2013).

    Celebrate People’s History: 
    Iraq Veterans Against the War – Ten Years of Fighting for Peace and Justice 

    Austellungseröffnung & Preformance 

    *Celebrate People’s History: Iraq Veterans Against the War – Ten Years of Fighting for Peace and Justice is a portfolio project celebrating Iraq Veterans Against the War’s (IVAW) ten year history. IVAW was founded in July 2004 to give voice to the large number of active duty service members and veterans who were against the war, but were under various pressures to remain silent. Over the past ten years, IVAW members have spoken out and taken action to end the wars they served in and to transform the society that fostered those wars.

    This portfolio features contributions from IVAW members, Justseeds Artists‘ Cooperative members, along with allied veterans, artists and writers. It highlights key ideas, moments, projects, tactics, and individuals from IVAW history in order to uplift IVAW’s ongoing struggle, inspire others to take action, and preserve the movement’s history for future generations.

    The Tea Project- 

    Join artist and Iraq Veteran Aaron Hughes for an afternoon of tea, reflection and dialogue.

    About The Tea Project

    When someone sits, sips, and reflects over a cup of tea there is space to ask questions about one’s relationship to the world: a world that’s filled with dehumanization, war, and destruction; a world that is filled with moments of beauty, love, and humanity. The Tea Project is an ongoing dialogue that traverses a variety of these landscapes, from the tea sipped on in a quaint coffee shop, to a cage in Guantanamo Bay, to a motor pool in Iraq; tea is not only a favored drink but a shared moment that transcends cultural divides and systems of oppression. That is not meant as a clichéd utopian statement, but as a reminder of a shared humanity that is so often overlooked. Please. Come to sit, sip tea, reflect, and share with me. –Aaron Hughes

    Seeking A Drop:

    Seeking A Drop was born as an acoustic folk duo in July 2012.
    During a few months, Fulvio Tulli (guitar/vocals) and Emilio Cataldi (lead guitar) self-recorded three Eps and promoted them playing acoustic shows all around Rome.
    In March 2013 Emilio left Italy and Fulvio, in spite of that, kept writing songs supported by Michele Mariola as a guitarist and Rocco Zilli as a multi-instrumentalist. The three-piece band recorded a studio album, „Beyond the wall“, released in May 2013 and promoted through an European tour.
    Emilio came back to Italy and in a few weeks‘ time Stefano Veloci (bass guitar) and Dimitri Nicastri (drums) joined the band too.
    In December 2013 they had a second European tour supported by A Lazy Cat.
    In February 2014 Fulvio moved to Berlin, and so did the project. Unfortunately he couldn’t keep on playing with the band.
    By now Seeking A Drop has two new members: AnnaT (vocals/percussions/ukulele) and Mathias Metzger (lead guitar/backing vocals). They’re working on the second studio album.

    A Lazy Cat is a singer-songwriter project started in Berlin during the winter 2012.
    AnnaT, born in Rome in 1991, began to write songs as a need in her early 20s.
    Since childhood, she’s been writing poems and tales. Her life has always been surrounded by music and, later on, by fellow musicians.
    She took her guitar along on the train to Berlin. Once settled down, she had the time and the right loneliness to take a deep look inside: chords and notes came out from that guitar and naturally matched with her passion for poetry and prose. From that moment on, she started composing her songs using also other instruments such as ukulele, percussions, violin and organ, even though she mainly performs them live with guitar.
    It’s hard to describe her genre. Humble and clear songs are the expression of a deep world, the release of a pain.
    A Lazy Cat played her first show in Rome in December 2013: the first of 22 shows as supporting act for the Berlin-based band Seeking A Drop during their second European tour.
    AnnaT, after this experience on the road, became a member of Seeking A Drop. In 2014, they kept playing live together in Berlin.
    Between spring and summer 2015, A Lazy Cat and Seeking A Drop will be traveling again for two months around Europe. By that time, A Lazy Cat’s first album will be released
