    Lecture: Out of Nature: The Invention of a Political Force (Didier Debaise)
    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The moderns have invented a ‘nature’ and made it one of their most important political institutions. The talk will revisit this very singular adventure through which a number of local inventions, gestures, and operations, namely within experimental systems, have given birth to a new political force.

    Submitted by: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Public feminism today travels by way of a technological update of collective speech acts of avowal and confession understood as already constituting political action — a practice familiar from 1970s feminism. And correspondingly, critiques of #MeToo have added little to the anti-feminist reactions of the 1970s. The talk argues that current activism warrants another look at two theoretical positions from the 1970s that related truth, speech, and sexuality — and were radically at odds with one...
