ICI Events suspended

The ICI Berlin has suspended all events until at least the end of April, in accordance with the directives of the Berlin Senate, and is exploring new formats to continue its programming online. We will keep you updated both through this Newsletter and the ICI Website.

We would like to encourage you to explore the public archive of hundreds of videorecorded ICI Events. In light of the current situation, a good place to start could be Lisa Baraitser’s talk 'On Time, Care, and Not Moving On’ or the discussion with Lauren Berlant and Kathleen Stewart on ‘Forms of Attachment’.

An Introduction to the Monarchia. With an Essay by Judith Revel
ed. by Christiane Frey, Manuele Gragnolati, Christoph F. E. Holzhey, Arnd Wedemeyer

Cultural Inquiry, 16
Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2020

Open Access

Claude Lefort, one of the most prominent political philosophers of the twentieth century, reads Dante’s Monarchia, showing the surprising relevance of this radical fourteenth-century treatise that defends the necessity of universal monarchy and its independence from the Church for modern political theory.

Petrolio 25 anni dopo

Petrolio 25 anni dopo

ed. by Carla Benedetti, Manuele Gragnolati, and Davide Luglio
Macerata: Quodlibet, 2020

Released only 17 years after the author’s assassination, Pasolini’s Petrolio faced bitter controversies, which did not help its understanding. Exploring the entanglements of political and economic power of those years, the novel’s aesthetics has inspired biopolitical reflections and contemporary queer aesthetics.

Multistable Figures

On the Critical Potential of Ir/Reversible Aspect-Seeing
ed. by Christoph F. E. Holzhey

Cultural Inquiry, 8
Vienna: Turia + Kant, 2014

Open Access

Multistable figures offer an intriguing model for arbitrating conflicting positions. Yet, the experience of a gestalt switch also offers a model for radical conversions and revolutions. This volume illuminates the critical potentials and limits of a complex figure of thought.
