Alain Badiou, Does the notion of activist art still have meaning?
Date: Wednesday, October 13, 2010 – 7:30 PM
Alain Badiou has authored a number of major philosophical works, including Being and Event, Theory of the Subject, The Century, and Handbook of Inaesthetics in addition to several novels, plays, and innumerable essays. In 2009, he and Slavoj Zizek published Philosophy in the Present, in which both thinkers explore the philosopher’s functional role in the world. Alberto Toscano’s English translation of Logics of Worlds, Badiou’s long-awaited sequel to Being and Event, was also released last year. A founding member of French militant post-party group, l’Organisation Politique, and a Maoist for many years, he remains a committed political activist.
