counter | infrastructures reading group: Daniel Loick

Dienstag, 17. Januar 2023, 19 Uhr, diffrakt | zentrum für theoretische peripherie & online


Die Lesegruppe findet auf Englisch statt.

The counter | infrastructures reading group seeks to examine the conditions of collective existence and sustenance. We focus, more precisely, on two apparently opposite but intricately entangled questions regarding infrastructures: How do infrastructures, as striations, wield and transform power, both generally and in the concrete? And which infrastructures, in turn, may help loosen the grip of these infrastructural powers?

Starting on 17 January 2023, we will be discussing Daniel Loick’s work on property. We will focus on Der Missbrauch des Eigentums, a philosophical investigation around the notion of property and its critique. While some of the readings will be in German, the discussions will take place in English.

Meetings take place every three weeks at diffrakt and online and we collectively decide what will be read next. If you would like to join the group, please send an email to
