thesubversivesound replied to your post: Anarchists can’t deal with my Marxist Autonomism….
your autonomism brings all the anarchists to tha yard..
and they’re like “you’re basically a complex anarchist hipster”
Hey don’t feel bad about it though, that’s definitely not the worst kind of anarchist hipster….
classe: I can’t see hipsters in this picture. In Italy autonomism rooted as much (if not even more) as (pure?) anarchism.
I often do politics with anarchist collectives, but I reckon that there are some practical and philosophical differences. I don’t see the point of this attempt to ridiculise a honest anti authoritarian movement that created as much literature and conlficts as modern anarchism and that is also so close to it.
Eventually I present myself as a communist to non-militant people.
Let’s chill out.
Flavio Costantini (1926 – 2013) ‘The Art of Anarchy’
Flavio Costantini was born in Rome, Italy, in 1926. He served in the Italian Navy before becoming a commercial graphic artist in 1955. He has illustrated several books including The Art of Anarchy (1974), The Shadow Line (1989) and Letters from the Underworld (1997).
More often than not it is the artist, writer or poet, rather than the historian or sociologist, who succeed in capturing the spirit of an age; in so doing, they make an important contribution to our understanding of society. Flavio Costantini is such a person. He sadly passed away on 20th May 2013.
classe: I personally took these pictures in an anarchic social centre in Bologna a few days ago, and I was wondering who the author was:
