DOUBLE ENTENDRE

KATY BOHINC, RACHAEL M. WILSON & JAMIESON WEBSTER

 

Performances & discussion of Bohinc’s “psycho-sexual thriller” Dear Alain, Webster’s The Life and Death of Psychoanalysis (Karnarc Books, 2011), which addresses Badiou’s theory of love and asks how it may be conceived from the psychoanalyst’s discourse; and Wilson’s “Fifteen Theses,” on her artist’s book created from Badiou’s Being and Event  to investigate the rhythms of reading, pleasure in distraction, and the book as a "cover." 

 

Badiou will attend performatively, as an audience member.
