This conversation with Rahel Aima and Ahmad Makia is the first of two (the second one is with Dena Qaddumi) recorded live in the event organized by Columbia University Studio-X in Amman, directed by Funambulist friend Nora Akawi. The first audio file above is the presentation of Archipelago in general and of the Levant series in particular as it originally preceded the conversation with Rahel and Ahmad. We begin the latter with the introduction of their online/printed platform, The State, and its subtle articulation between the politics of space and the politics of body. This discussion mostly focuses on the third issue ...

A conversation between Library Stack and Sam Hardy, a British archaeologist who tracks the black market trade in illicit antiquities. Working from London and Rome, Hardy studies Conflict Antiquities: that’s everything from the looting of ancient objects at unguarded archaeological sites, to thefts from national museum collections, to the anonymous finds of amateurs with metal detectors. Library Stack got in touch with Sam to learn more about his work, and about how this global trade cuts across contemporary politics. Sam spoke at length about how the presumed cultural right to understand the past sometimes pushes against the implicit human right ...

This conversation with Iva Marčetić is one of two recorded in Zagreb at the end of the Western Balkans series. Throughout this discussion, we talk about Iva’s engagement as a political activist in relation to her architectural training. Her main involvement is done through the Zagreb-based organization “The Right to the City,” that she describes through various struggles against the rampant privatization of the city.

Iva Marčetić holds a Master degree in architecture from Architectural school, University of Zagreb. She has been a part of ...

In this conversation, Budapest-based journalist and editor Tamás Bodoky unfolds for us the nationalist politics deployed by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán since the beginning of his second term in 2010. We begin with the establishment of a law allowing the government to easily control the press. We then evoke the reform of the Constitution that enforces Christian values and identity in the legal framework of the Hungarian society. But the most important part of the discussion questions these politics in relation to the important migratory movement of Central Asia and Middle East refugees through East Europe. The new hermetic fence built on the border with ...

For many years, Stuart Elden has thoroughly examined the concept of territory. In order to enter into this quasi-exhaustive research, I invited him to talk about the idea of volumetric territory, both in general and in the specific case of the occupied Palestinian territories. We borrow the notion of “politics of verticality” from Eyal Weizman in order to describe how sovereignty enforces itself onto subterranean, surface, and atmospheric spaces. Later, we use the work of Paul Virilio and Claude Parent and their architectural concept of oblique to challenge our common perception of territories in their flat cartographic interpretation. Finally, we discuss ...

In this conversation, Yael Lerer introduces us to her work as founder of Andalus Publishing, which used to translate Arabic literature and poetry (Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish, Lebanese Elias Khoury, Moroccan Muhammad Choukri, etc.) into Hebrew. The balancing act of this venture consists in gaining the trust from the authors — a polemic was thus created in Egypt when Yael approached some writers there — and preventing at all costs the normalization of what Yael calls herself the state of apartheid enforced upon Israel/Palestine by the Israeli government. We also discuss about Yael’s role in the foundation of the Balad, a Palestinian political ...

This short conversation with Marjetka P. has the particularity to be recorded in the ‘thickness’ of the border between Slovenia and Croatia, where a new fence materializes and drastically filters the access to the Schengen space — Croatia is a member of the E.U. but not yet of Schengen. In this discussion in situ, we address the current situation both locally (i.e. in Slovenia) and more broadly, at the scale of what is legitimate to call “Fortress Schengen.” This conversation is followed by an even shorter one, recorded with Matija Kralj, who has been documenting the spatiality and activity of the Dobova refugee ...
