New Solutions: From History to the Future

Worldwork 2014 will take place in Warsaw, a place with turbulent history and vibrant present.

The city has been destroyed and reborn. It witnessed the Ghetto uprising and later Warsaw uprising organized by Polish underground army. Jewish districts, the people, the culture – disappeared. Warsaw was systematically bombarded in 1944, and then rebuilt. The city remembers communist past, with the times of terror and hopelessness, but also attempted social justice and values other than money.

Now it is one of the fastest growing cities in Central Europe, with modern skyscrapers, a crazy pace and apparently vast possibilities. Yet these possibilities are not easy fulfilled and people are confronted with new set of challenges.

In Marx’s view, consciousness was always political: it was always the outcome of politic-economic circumstances. 150 years after Marx we notice both advantages and disadvantages of the capitalist system. It is especially vivid here where the post-communist remnants and the new global culture meet on an everyday basis. Growing economic inequality is one of the main sources of tension between individuals, groups, nations and continents. Unemployment, housing issues, failing health systems, emigration and immigration are just a few examples of issues that we are dealing with.

On the other hand, new consciousness is arising: the quantum paradigm, consciousness studies, new social movements like Spanish “Indignation” or Occupy point out to the new possibilities.

During Worldwork 2014 we would like to build a bridge from the past to the future. For many people, coming to Warsaw is an immediate confrontation with their own history. We would like to make space for our stories that are so different and yet they belong together. We believe that relating through our past stories will help us to see where we are now and to deal with the issues of today. Then, we hope to discover new possibilities for the future.

We would like this Worldwork to be the arena of acknowledging the past. We hope to explore economic tensions rooted in today’s economy. This time we would also like to create space for discovering and elaborating new solutions on different levels, from global visions to local projects.
