That Might Be Right
That Might Be Right is a platform dedicated to (re)searching, developing and supporting alternatives to the present.
At the moment our research and activities are focussed on the notion of primitive accumulation. In our film Borderscapes the history of dispossession and ownership of land already came to the fore. Last year (2019) we discussed the long term focus of TMBR and decided on the overarching research on primitive accumulation. The TMBR reading group already took up the research by reading Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation by Silvia Federici that shows that primitive accumulation is not only foundational to capitalism but also a recurring process in its expansion. From this experience we decided to research primitive accumulation from different perspectives and recurrences as we think this concept can link some of the most crucial themes of our time: gender, colonialism, ecology, technology. These four themes are the TMBR PILLARS along which we will develop the research on primitive accumulation.
From 2020 onwards we will organise one TMBR reading group before the summer and one after the summer. A reading group would contain about six sessions, a session is organised every two weeks. As a support to these sessions we will develop a scenography that can serve for the presentation of an exhibition in process with different documents and works by artists that relate to the theme. For each semester there will be one assembly organised where the exhibition will be activated with the public through a lecture, a screening, or a discussion.
