Undercommons. Pianificazione fuggitiva e studio nero is the first book of the series Ante-politics published with Tamu Edition. In this essential book, Stefano Harney and Fred Moten draw on the theory and practice of the black radical tradition as it supports, inspires, and extends contemporary social and political thought and aesthetic critique. Working from and within the social poesis of life in The Undercommons, Harney and Moten develop and expand an array of concepts: study, debt, surround, planning, and the shipped. The Italian edition aims at fostering the dialogue around the authors’ thoughts and propositions, following the fugitive path of an historical and global blackness, to invite the reader to the self-organised ensembles of social life that are launched every day and every night amid the general antagonism of The Undercommons.

Past Events

Gaddafi in Rome

Gaddafi in Rome


In June 2009 Muammar Gaddafi and Silvio Berlusconi met in Rome to celebrate the Italy-Libya Treaty on Friendship, Partnership and Cooperation and discuss the Bilateral Agreements on migration and fuel trade. As the event sparked several protests, it caused a media frenzy in Italy that brought to the fore the controversial relations between the two countries. Attempting to turn an archive of live news updates produced during the meeting into a script, this performative lecture strives to dissect the memory of this event and the way it was reported.
