Summary
The Commune is back on the agenda. From Madrid to Istanbul, from Cairo to New York, people are reappropriating public and private spaces, reorienting them towards a new function in common. A return to the great 19th century insurrection that most fully instantiated urban insurrection may well be due. Communal Luxury revisits what Marx called the Commune's own working existence, a lived experience of equality in action, focusing particularly on questions of the commune form itself, internationalism, work, art, education and ecology. Ross intertwines the actual words spoken, positions taken, and physical displacements made by the event's participant and its fellow travelers, as well as the bubbling thought it generated. In its original engagement with, but not slavish allegiance to, anarchism and Marxism, the Commune experience is of particular timeliness today.--
