Elizabeth Povinelli | Ephemeropteræ 2017/#10

September 8, 2017
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
TBA21–Augarten, Scherzergasse 1A, 1020 Vienna, Austria

Using film clips and objects from the Karrabing Film Collective and research on bioluminescence, Elizabeth A. Povinelli and Susanne M. Winterling jointly explore the governance of existence in the crumbling discourses and practices of geontopower. What forms of existence are staying put, retreating, being extinguished, and gaining affective force; and what political vocabularies are emerging as the fictive politics of logos gives way to other signals, senses, and dreams? Where will our anti-capitalist antagonists emerge from? What shape will they take—red algae, toxic sovereignties, precariat posthumans—and where will this leave those clinging to the benefits of late liberalism?
