SEMINAR // ORGANIZING SPACE: A LITERARY TURN

Thursday 06 Jul 7:00pm Tuesday 06 Jun 10:00pm

This evening Overgaden in collaboration with Copenhagen Business School invites you to a crossdisciplinary meeting between Peter Voss-Knude’s art, Roberto Bolaño’s novel ‘2666’ and studies in organizations and political power. The event will take its point of departure in the vertiginous structure of 2666 where linear narratives are replaced by a maze of loosely connected events, passages, and persons. The novel creates a state of apophenia – a state where we are never able to apprehend the violence even though we spend our lives amidst of it. During the evening the participants will be able to explore how violence is organized and the ability of people and societies to remember and forget violence and war. There will be presentations from Peter Voss-Knude, Damian O’Doherty, Gibson Burrell, and Christian de Cock.

The event is organized by Justine Grønbæk Pors from Copenhagen Business School and will be in English.
