In the Arts Hall of the Mapocho Station and in the middle of the closing weekend of Filsa, the new edition of the Trama Magazine will be launched. In this fourth edition, fourteen authors offer their perspectives on post-neoliberalism, texts that were illustrated by popular graphic artist Malaimagen.
The number includes an extensive interview with writer Diamela Eltit, National Literature Prize of 2018, where the author of works like Heart infarction (with Paz Errazuriz, 1994); Labor (Seix Barral, 2002) or Add (Seix Barral, 2018) details the intersections between her narrative, resistance to neoliberalism, and the recent feminist outburst.
The journal is a political initiative of theoretical discussion funded by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Chile, in which a wide range of actors from the national left participate. Thus, in the last edition, they write authors who work in movements and parties of the Frente Amplio as the Autonomous Left, the SOL Movement, the Left Libertarian, the New Democracy, the Autonomist Movement and the Democratic Revolution, as well as the Communist Party and the socialist socialist of the collective left.
The texts address strategies and perspectives for overcoming neoliberalism in Chile, which for the editorial staff of the journal is a necessity, given that "from the left, intellectual efforts have focused on making social problems visible, with the sole objective of generating a opposition to neoliberal policies, but there has been an intellectual vacuum on economic issues, which since Marx, and real socialisms, has not been able to adapt organically to the current economic scenario.
German sociologist Wolfgang Streeck will take part in the launch talk on Saturday, November 10. Author of books How will capitalism end? (Dream Traffickers, 2018) and The crises of democratic capitalism (New Left Review, 2015), among others, Streeck is one of the most influential intellectuals on the European left, especially since the subprime economic crisis of the last decade.
As with all releases, the fourth edition of TRAMA magazine will be delivered free of charge after the talk. To help and count on the entrance released to Filsa, her team online application form
