Communism of Capital and Cannibalism of the Common

Manchester, 7 Oct.

Ideology Redux. From Slavoj Zizek to Michael Hardt, contemporary philosophers are calling for a renewed interest in the relevance of communism. We ask what it means to revisit socialism for a new generation who environmentally and economically live in unpredictable times. Have strong convictions been cast out of modern, democratic and political life and replaced by a new political majority? What are the new systems of thought for the digital generation? And how do we re-imagine art and politics against the fashionable communism of capital? A debate chaired by Andy Miah with Matteo Pasquinelli at David McLellan. 7th October 2010, International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester.


“Communism of Capital and Cannibalism of the Common: Notes on the Art of Over-Identification”, commissioned by AND festival, Manchester.
