The Struggle of Thought

Espai en Blanc (Blank Space), a collective bid to promote the struggle of thought and reconsider the possibility of moving beyond the arbitrariness of the markets and breaking out of the prison of debt that walls in our lives. The advent of the recession makes it possible to move towards a new social contract: the right — or not — to participate in the global mobilization. And in this context, undefined diseases emerge as ways of addressing the global mobilization, such as social unrest. The 15-M movement is one example.
