The Cussedness of Objects
Saturday 22.1.11 at 14:00


The Cussedness of Objects is part of an ongoing dialogue between Evan Calder Williams of Socialism and/or Barbarism and Marina Vishmidt, writer and researcher at Queen Mary University, that started with hostile objects and has since opened more broadly onto commodity fetishism from the perspective of the commodity, recodings and "misuses" of the city (from occupations to barricades), reification theory, socialist animism, and, above all, the strange fates and promises of a built world alternately murderous, feeble, and indifferent.

The discussion will be followed by a screening of The Man in the White Suit.


Places are very limited so, R.S.V.P. to participate and for links to relevant reading.
