With KEN BAUMANN
Beginning March 12, Postmasters Gallery is excited to host a second lecture series by the pseudonymous philosopher FuckTheory. Like the previous set of six lectures, each lecture will be read by a different performer, beginning with Colin Self on 03/12 at 4 pm. The lectures are open to the public and no previous knowledge of theory or philosophy is required.
Series II continues to think through the persistent problems of recent intellectual history, and ask seriously what the present situation implies for the habits and institutions in and through which we are used to thinking and creating. The organizing thread of the lectures is the insistence that the ways we think about and talk about the world are inseparable from the ways we live in it and the conditions under which we do so; that the dominant and hegemonic intellectual institutions push the epistemologies and ideologies they push for a reason; and that to think differently and to live differently are inseparable, parallel propositions.
The first series dug down towards the dialectical foundations of philosophy to ask how affect and idea are linked. The second series will turn to the organization of ideas, and the institutions and habits of thought that grow out of that organization. The gallery will remain open after each lecture for conversation.
You should come.
