Il sapere é potere: armiamoci! Ci difendiamo dalla dismissione dei saperi costruendo libri scudo, armandoci nella cooperazione, tra un libro e l`altro. Abbiamo occupato le piazze, i monumenti, le strade, le scuole e le università. Ci siamo difesi dalle cariche della polizia e abbiamo parlato diverse lingue, differenti storie. Ma una cosa ci accomuna, dietro gli scudi: la rabbia, perché l`ignoranza non é neutra. Siamo di fronte ad un attacco senza precedenti ai nostri desideri, da parte dei governi di mezza Europa in nome dell`austerity. Dobbiamo difenderci!

Plexus, Nexus...Book Bloc: siamo a Roma, a Londra, Il Cairo, Tunisi, Wisconsin, Porto Rico.... Siamo stati nelle lotte trasformandole, stravolgendone i confini nazionali e la loro grammatica.


UniCommon nasce fin da subito oltre lo spazio nazionale. il Book Bloc Project nasce direttamente nello spazio striato dei confini, nelle sue insopportabili segmentazioni dentro l'università, i saperi, i nostri corpi. I confini nazionali sono come le discipline: vanno abbattuti!

::::::: Knowledge is Power: Let's arm ourselves!!

We protect ourselves from the dismissal of knowledge by creating book- shields, arming in cooperation, between a book and the other. We occupied squares, monuments, streets, schools and universities. We defended ourselves from the clashes of police, we spoke different languages, different stories. But a thing unites us, behind the shields: rage, because ignorance is not neutral. We face an attack to our desire by the governments of half Europe, in the name of an unprecedented austerity. We must defend ourselves.


Plexus, Nexus...Book Bloc: we are in Rome, London, Cairo, Tunis, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico...We've been in the struggles, changing them, subverting their national borders and their grammar.

UniCommon starts from the beginning beyond the national space. The Book Bloc project is born immediately in the striated space of borders, in its unbearable segmentations within the university, the knowledge, our bodies. National borders are like disciplines: they must be destroyed!
