Book series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ continues as open access publication

The book series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ switches publishers. After publishing fourteen volumes over the course of nine years with Turia+Kant, new titles in the series will now be published by the ICI Berlin, online, open access and as globally distributed print-on-demand book.


An Errant Glossary

The fifteenth volume of the series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ has just been released and is available in print and in several open access ebook formats. The book, a collective labour of the ICI research project ‘ERRANS, in Time’, presents a glossary of words starting with ‘re-‘. Mining the rich morphology of a deceptively simple prefix, the glossary complicates the linear and teleological models commonly accepted as structuring the relations between past, present, and future, opening onto errant temporalities.

Die leise Arbeit des Todestriebs

Lecture, 26 Feb 2019, 20:00

Im 1972 erschienen Anti-Ödipus denken Gilles Deleuze und Félix Guattari Begehren als nomadisch mäandernde, transformative Kraft.

Die Vortragsreihe Psychoanalytische Kulturwissenschaft widmet sich dem Einfluss der Psychoanalyse auf die Kulturtheorien im Allgemeinen sowie besonders treffenden Anwendungen psychoanalytischen Verstehens auf aktuelle Phänomene.

Blurring the Event

ICI Lecture, 11 Mar 2019, 19:30

The ‘event’ of May ’68 has been marked as exceptional and momentous in postwar philosophy and theory. What does it mean to take exception to this exceptionalism of the Political? The sensible materialities invoked in Félix Guattari’s talk of 'micropolitics’ and ‘ecosophy’ blur the sharp outlines of epic turning points that structure theories of the Political, opening up other ways of naming the ‘matter’ of politics.
