    RIOTS: DISSENT AND SPECTRES, CONTROL AND RUPTURES

    Fri 26.01 18:00 // PERFORMANCE, LECTURE, TALK // ACUD STUDIO
    RIOTS: DISSENT AND SPECTRES, CONTROL AND RUPTURES

    As a fear of the masses heightens amid communal divides, this public programme rethinks and reframes riots through conversations, performances, and screenings.
     
    How may the revolutionary potential of rioters’ demands be read within the circuits of recent history and contemporary society? We will address how riots inhabit and renegotiate the status quo within global metropoles, while also becoming the testing grounds of militarised urbanism targeting vulnerable and racialised groups.
     
    Event held in English.
    Admission free.

    “Between the 18th and the 20th centuries, modernity was built on rationalism, individualism […] and on the social contract of the Republic, united and indivisible. The modernist project was to dominate nature and to be universal. The postmodernity […] has seen the powerful return of the impulse to community and of the need of collective emotion – I call this neo-tribalism […]” (Maffesoli, Michel (2016): From society to tribal communities. The Sociological Review: Volume 64, Issue 4) – ?
