Neoliberalism and the Importance of the Radical Imagination

  • John Jay College 524 W 59th St New York, NY, 10019 United States

Anti-capitalist cultural production has struggled to come to terms with creating oppositional culture within a neoliberal context: the relationship of art and culture to restructured global labor, to the constant reproduction of gestures across geographies and cultures and the residual disbelief in “totalizing metanarratives” (i.e. socialism). Each of these interrelated dynamics challenge anti-capitalist cultural producers to create new strategies. This workshop, part of Left Forum 2015, aims to play a modest (but urgent) role in his discussion.

Speakers on the panel include Red Wedge editors Adam Turl, Nikeeta Slade and Alexander Billet. It will be held in Room 1.125, 524 W 59th Street, New York City.

This event is part of this year's Left Forum, to be held from May 29th to 31st at John Jay College in NYC. Tickets can be purchased here. RSVP on Facebook to the event here.
