Politics of Feelings/Economies of Love emerged out of a reading initiative by a group of cultural workers, artists and curators, gathered under the name k.r.u.ž.o.k. (kružok stands for an intimate social circle). The publication brings about a set of reflections on the possible relation between ideology and social emotions, sexuality and nationalism, love and emotional community within nationalist and/or market fundamentalism. In attempts to find out how these issues were tackled in film, visual arts and architecture, we are trying to draw some new lines of understanding love as a tissue in which political, social, ideological and economic meanings are inscribed. This publication is composed of visual and textual contributions which unfold different chapters on the entanglement of politics and collective sentiment, as well as love as a trigger for dedicated unpaid work.
