Reproduction There are scenes in Godard’s film Passion (1982) that, at different points in the film, famous paintings from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Velazquez, Manet, Rembrandt, Goya, Delacroix are set in scene by costumes, decor, lighting and the positioning of actors. In some of these scenes, the Requiem of Mozart or the Requiem of Gabriel Fauré can be heard. The scenes are staged replicas of the paintings, like living tableaux, without any attempt to dissemble the replication by absorbing what is staged into the fiction, for

Inequality and the ‘useless economy’
Aleksander Buzgalin and Andrey Kolganov

This chapter is necessarily brief and exploratory since we have yet to complete our elaboration of this category of questions. If we nevertheless make so bold as to place the chapter before the reader, it is because these questions form an integral, though yet unfinished, part of our study of the categories of twenty-first-century capital. Reproduction under the conditions of late capitalism: the new quality of the general law of capitalist accumulation Any economic system is structured by relations that

Original or reproduction? Today everything is ‘original’ from the junk shop's bygones to the local butcher's sausages. The word is frequently used in place of ‘genuine’, a living reflection of the value our culture attaches to the idea of the original. In this light, it is ironical to reflect that works of art achieve the status of

Social reproduction of youth labour market inequalities 13 The social reproduction of youth labour market inequalities: the effects of gender, households and ethnicity Jacqueline O’Reilly, Mark Smith and Paola Villa Introduction Young people have been disproportionately hit by the economic crisis. In many  European countries, unemployment rates have increased faster for youth  than for prime age groups (O’Reilly et al., 2015).

efficient reproduction of the men’s labour-power. The alternative, after all, was to reduce the working day in order to give the men time to cook and care for themselves. 73 At a time when labour was scarce and the prospects for survival fragile, this was not a particularly viable strategy. The destruction of so many of the early settlement records in the immediate aftermath of Collins’s death in 1810

4  Gavin Smith Rethinking social reproduction in an era of the dominance of finance capital Social reproduction is a very vague and undefined concept; it includes directly or indirectly every social event so that it becomes impossible to analyse it separately from the accumulation/development process. (Mingione 1983: 312) With the rise of neoliberal regimes in both the global North and South, the social dimension of capitalist reproduction has come under severe attack.1 Various reasons for this have been put forward, from the increased demands of unionised

complex. The function of imperialism in the cultural reproduction of femininity, reconciling greater freedom and fitness for girls with their continued subordination to the patriarchal order, is one of these underpinnings. The manifestation of these protracted hegemonic negotiations in fiction, and the part played by that fiction in the negotiations, is important in two ways. Firstly, stories about Guiding

control policies had caste, religious and ethnic underpinnings in India, in South Africa the conversation around population control is deeply embedded in racial politics and apartheid policies. But, much as the chequered history of contraception in India does not start and end with the British impetus, the history of birth control in South Africa starts before the National Party's (NP – Afrikaner ethnic nationalist party that designed and implemented the apartheid state) preoccupation with apartheid and population control. An emphasis on selective reproduction, by race

world. In their intricate and artificial materiality, facsimiles combine the modern technological sophistication of accurate reproduction with the sensory, affective appeal of the medieval. The Patrimonio company is a good example, producing many facsimiles of European manuscripts. The by-line on their website is ‘The only company which uses pure gold and true precious stones for its facsimiles of the
