the party as form: Jodi Dean at Gallery 400

o15_0rtxxtdxWhat infrastructures can sustain the momentum of an event of political massing?  What are compelling idioms, amidst ideologies and theories of anarchic post-politics, for affirming formations as integral to political struggle? In her book Crowds and Party, Jodi Dean argues that the party must be reclaimed as a site and modality of politics; InterCcECT previously hosted a lively mini-seminar on the book and is thrilled to now host Professor Dean herself for a talk and debate.

Join us Thursday 20 October, 5pm, in the lovely environs of our frequent collaborator Gallery 400.
