<nettime> OWC

Simply put, OWC and its homologues are the inversion of what Agamben calls, if memory serves, the permanent State of Exception. In Berkeley, various efforts to disrupt the flow of commodities went under the rubric of No more Business as Usual. This is a related but distinct phenomenon. A non-univocal series of declaration(s) of a State of Exception from the bottom up. An exception to the exception.
