Reading Group

• Sun 22 09 – Sun 15 12 2019 / 12 pm •
TOWARD A DIRTY UNIVERSALISM


The reading group was established as a (self-)educational initiative intending to stimulate thoughtful exchanges on the themes raised by Academy’s program. This season, the reading group continues the discussion that was triggered by the project Perverse Decolonization and explores questions of identity and multiculturalism in the context of emerging nationalisms.

By engaging with texts by Slavoj Žižek, Terry Eagleton, Donna Haraway and Gilles Deleuze, possible forms of a new universalism shall be discussed. The reading group is a self-organized group that meets once a month in an informal atmosphere and is open to anyone interested.
Participants are encouraged to give own impulses and propose their own reading material. Depending on the group of participants, reading and discussion will be in English or German.
