Rivoluzioni domestiche contro domesticazioni tecnologiche

Translated title of the contribution: Domestic Revolutions Against Technological Domestications

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    The majority of speculative analyses on post-work society focus on the effects of the digital revolution on paid work in production. Instead, I propose to contribute to the creation of an anti-workerist political imaginary from the perspective of a minor history of technology, which in feminist criticism has investigated the technologization of the domestic sphere and the political battles that have accompanied it. Focusing on the evolution of domestic technologies allows us to relate the crisis of work to that of normalized domesticity, understood as the place of the blood family, the private, of care and of consumption, but also, vice versa, to examine the impact of what can be defined as 'domestication technologies' on the forms of collective life that are available today. This genealogy problematizes the hypothesis of an emancipatory re-appropriation of the existing technological infrastructures, calling for a reflection on the technical and political aspects of free time as a commonly determined pleasure.
