A talk by Federico Campagna of Through Europe
Federico Campagna discusses the connection between autonomy and happiness, in relation to the possibility of developing a happy precarity within/outside contemporary capitalism.
Two digital platforms (one for sex workers, the other for illicit trafficking on the deep web) will provide case studies about the role of the net within such processes.

On Feb. 26, Denmark’s TV2 needed an over-the-shoulder shot for a report on the conflict in Syria, and some production assistant gave the control room a screengrab from the original Assassin’s Creed (which features the city prominently) Apparently it’s this one, from the game’s unofficial…

“…the video’s creator put it, “my brain loses its capability for cognition. It crashes like a computer.” Kay said he “thought that it would be such a powerful experience from a first-person perspective and a good project to take on for a weekend.”
…There has been some negative feedback too, including messages from some autistic people who said the game is nothing like their experience. Others have taken exception to such an abstract game with “sim” as part of its title. “

Full review: The New inquiry
“Combing through nearly 200 cop-centric films, the group extracted hundreds of scenes. Many are hilarious out of context, in which police are killed, kill, or otherwise act piggish. Impressively, the clips communicate well enough with one another to form a fairly coherent narrative….
Anti-Banality is not merely hopping on populist anti-police sentiments here, but rather deconstructing our pop-cultural ideas that criticize, but ultimately justify policing. There are the bad apples like Richard Gere in Internal Affairs, the vigilante of Dirty Harry, and cops as the last line of defense of civilization in a city that will “tear itself apart” (Robocop) without them. While the film is witty enough that audiences will likely not be compelled to march with torches to their local precinct, the horror of police violence and its annihilating consequences for social revolution seem to be the filmmaker’s main concerns.”

“The Magical Negro is a somewhat mystical supporting stock character in fiction who, by use of special insight or powers, helps the white protagonist get out of trouble. African-American filmmaker Spike Lee popularized the term, deriding the archetype of the “super-duper magical negro” in 2001 while discussing films with students at Washington State University and at Yale University.
The Magical Negro is a subset of the more generic numinous Negro, a term coined by Richard Brookhiser in National Review. The latter term refers to saintly, respected or heroic black protagonists or mentors.”
