Guest co-curated by Pietro Ferrua, founder of the International Center for
Research on Anarchism
In an era of accelerating global capitalism, where constant upheaval of every kind—political,
social, economic, cultural, environmental—is the rule, the search for a social system
that brings prosperity with justice has never been sought by so many people. The history
of anarchism, which dates back to mid-19th century France and Russia, is based on
"utopia," the ideal of mutual aid and voluntary cooperation, in lieu of control by the state
or private concentrations of power. Anarchist philosophy lies at the heart of numerous
activist causes worldwide, and has shaped our popular and political culture in countless
ways. Yet for a broader public, anarchist ideals are outmoded, thought to be the dangerous
(i.e. terrorist) passion of the underclass, or simply the nihilism of the young. But the
continuing inquiry into the subject suggests that its relevance to our globalist present continues.
We hope this series offers insight into the revolutionary desire for a better world.
