Abstract [en]

The housing crisis is commonly understood as a mere lack of supply, but the uncanny feeling evoked by flipping through the IKEA catalogue indicates that the very /essence/ of domesticity is in crisis. In an era where life itself is inseparable from production, the house is no longer a site for refuge but the very center of production through home offices, Airbnb sublets and data mining. If we turn to the origin of the word, /krisis/ – decision, we can recognise this as an opportunity to rid ourselves of an obsolete notion of domesticity and formulate other ways to live and struggle.

Abstract [sv]

Bostadsbristen betraktas ofta som en ren brist, men obehaget som väcks av att bläddra i IKEA-katalogen pekar på att boendets själva väsen befinner sig i kris. I en tid då livet självt är oskiljbart från produktionen är bostaden inte längre en plats att dra sig tillbaka till, utan utgör själva kärnan i produktionen genom hemmakontor, Airbnb-uthyrning och data mining. Om vi ser till ursprunget ordets ursprung, krisis – beslut, kan vi betrakta det som en möjlighet att frigöra oss från en föråldrad idé om boende och formulera nya sätt att leva och kämpa.
