How to Have Sex in a Pandemic

Online Lecture, 26 Apr 2021, 19:00

Queer-theoretical accounts of intimacy in particular have been decisively shaped by readings of art and literature and psychoanalytic reflection. Tim Dean’s talk 'How to Have Sex in a Pandemic' echoes the title of Douglas Crimp's seminal 1987 essay about AIDS 'How to Have Promiscuity in an Epidemic?'

Organized by Peter Rehberg, Hanna Hamel, and Apostles Lampropoulos. A cooperation of the Schwules Museum Berlin (SMU), the Leibniz-Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung (ZfL) with its research project ‘Neighborhood in Contemporary Berlin Literature’, and the ICI Berlin. Supported by Hauptstadtkulturfonds.

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register using the form on the event page. Public livestream with the possibility to ask questions via chat.

Part of the Lecture Series Intimacy.

Counter-
Archive


Online Symposium, 29 - 30 Apr 2021

At a time when the notion of the ‘archive’ threatens to become a dead metaphor or a cheap replacement for ‘canon’ or ‘corpus’, the symposium suggests to take a particularly contentious example — that of the Yugoslav Partisan ‘counter-archive’ — as a starting-point for its reconsideration of archival politics.

Organized by Gal Kirn and Claudia Peppel

This ICI event is organized in cooperation with the project Ré.Part – Partisan Resistance(s): Visual culture, collective imagination and revolutionary memory (ANR-15-IDEX-02) of Laboratoire de Recherche Historique Rhône-Alpes (LARHRA) de l’Université Grenoble Alpes, with generous support of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register using the form on the event page.

Materialism and Politics

Materialism and Politics


ed. by Bernardo Bianchi, Emilie Filion-Donato,
Marlon Miguel, Ayşe Yuva

Cultural Inquiry, 20
Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2021

Open Access

Is materialism still relevant to critically think politics? Throughout modernity, the concept of materialism was associated with fatalism and naturalism, when it was not simply dismissed as heresy and atheism. In the nineteenth century, materialism evolved into a central concept of progressive politics, reappearing again in the past decades through renewed Marxist and Spinoza-based approaches, New Materialism, and feminist discourses. This volume inquires these contrasting uses from theoretical and historical perspectives.
