Social Reproduction Imaginaries, Technologies, Collectivities: Reflections on Melanie Gilligan's The Common Sense

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Taking Melanie Gilligan's sci fi film & installation The Common Sense as its main focus, the paper examines the problems that technologies of the body present to the radical social reproduction imaginaries of the 21st century. The analysis focuses on (a) the gendered experience, and (b) collectivities as they are represented in The Common Sense as a work that advances a critique of the exchange economy within capitalism.
