Our Things in our Hands

“The light from the East is not only the liberation of worker, the light from the East is in the new relation to the person, to woman, to things. Our things in our hands must be equals, comrades.”
Alexander Rodchenko, 'Rodchenko v Parizhe. Iz pisem domoi', Novyi lef, 1927

"Since the universal power of the whole of nature is nothing but the power of all individual things together, it follows each individual thing has the sovereign right to do everything that it can do, or the right of each thing extends so far as its determined power extends"
Baruch Spinoza, Theologico-Political Treatise, 1670
