The Economy of Fascism

With Boris Buden, Tomasz Konicz und Hanna Lichtenberger

Part of the festival The Aesthetics of Resistance – Peter Weiss 100

Illustration: Petja Dimitrova

The series discusses the growth of right-wing parties and movements. Taking off from “The Aesthetics of Resistance”, in the centre of which is the fight against historical fascism, international speakers analyse current developments in Europe. The programme researches historical continuities, the significance of the world economic crisis for the shift to the right, and the gaps in the NSU network.

The Return of European Fascism is a series consisting of five events.
Curated by Bini Adamczak.

#2: The return of various forms of fascism in Europe has an obvious connection to the world economic crisis since 2009. What is the social basis of the neo-fascist movements, what economic fractions do they promote? Anyone wanting to talk about fascism cannot be silent about capitalism.
