The March issue on “Property/Eigentum” takes as its starting point the observation that liberal ideas of subjectivity are closely bound up with the concept of property. How can these propertied-individualist ideas be broken up when subjectivity is thought of as originating in expropriation? It is a question that is of particular urgency at a time when lived alternatives to the dominant property relations have become rare. This issue is an attempt to detect some of the hairline cracks where alternatives might come into view – be it in the mode of a critique of the prevailing property structures and relations to self, or in the form of a sustained reflection on the possibility of different forms of property.
