The Museum of Care and the Real Democracy Movement launch discussion on the State and its meaning in today’s world.

The first session, called “What is The State?” will take place on October 26 at the Museum of Care and will be facilitated by Corinna Lotz. During the event, Paul Feldman will discuss what the contemporary State is. Afterwards, a brief summary of some of David Graeber’s writings on the State will be given by one of the Museum of Care’s members. 

The second session, called “Social Progress in Chile With or Without the State” will take place on November 23 and will be facilitated by Fiona Harrington. Fernando Quintana will discuss recent attempts to replace the Chilean constitution, originally imposed during the 1973 military coup in which General Augusto Pinochet replaced Chile’s first socialist president, Salvadore Allende. One of the Museum of Care’s members will summarise some of David Graeber’s ideas of democracy and ask: why did Occupy refuse to respond to the demand to make demands?
