The Cussedness of Objects: Saturday the 22

UPDATE: Space is all filled up.  We have a waiting list in case anyone cancels, so feel free to write regarding this, but we're overpacked as is...


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.
