EVENING CLASS // THE SYSTEM: THE ACTIVIST POTENTIAL OF LOVE

Thursday 19 Nov 5:00pm 7:00pm

Overgaden once again sets the scene for The System’s school of resistance who this time invites you to a critical discussion concerning the activist potential of love.

 

Love contains forces that no one controls, but is it at all possible to redirect and use these forces in a political situation? This time we will go out on the muddy waters of love in an investigation of the forcefield where desire and morality meet: in love and in politics. This will be addressed in presentations which shed light on this somewhat neglected area in a philosophical and theoretical context and move on to gender politics where a clash between these is inevitable.

Among the speakers are post graduate student Malte Tellerup who is going to investigate the French philosopher Alain Badiou’s book In Praise of Love, and artist and educator Madeleine Kate McGowan from the project Other Story – a short film project which presents stories and personal accounts from Syrian immigrants at their arrival at the Greek archipelago. Additionally the artists Mira Winding and Nana Dahlin will present an art work made specifically for this event.

The event will also be open for discussion among the audience.

The event is organized by Anna and Esben Weile Kjær and will be in Danish.

Due to limited seats, it is mandatory to sign up at: info@infinitescroll.dk
