Capital: the social cohesion that strangles us

We are the Crisis of Capitalism

John Holloway lives in Mexico and teaches at the University of Puebla. He has published widely on Marxist theory, on the Zapatista movement, and on new forms of anticapitalist struggle. His book Change the World without Taking Power has been translated into eleven languages and has stirred an international debate. His most recent book, Crack Capitalism, takes the argument further by suggesting that the only way to think of revolution today is as the creation, expansion, multiplication, and confluence of cracks in capitalist domination.

Our understanding of the integral mission of the Institute is distinctive in several key aspects. First, we attempt to integrate worlds of academic and grassroots knowledge. We believe that universities and social sciences are, for the most part, isolated from new practices and new movements, as they keep insisting on concepts and theories that are not adequate to new realities of creation and resistance. On the other side of this gap, activists are in serious need of new theories: theoretical knowledge (s) that can assist them in reflecting analytically on their practices, methods, and strategies for social change. At a moment when education is more then ever in danger of becoming enclosed and commodified, we have an urgent responsibility to defend universities as autonomous and critical places of knowledge production.
