If you somehow haven’t already heard, my first book, Egress: On Mourning, Melancholy & Mark Fisher, is out worldwide on March 10th, published by Repeater Books.
The day after its release, on March 11th, I’m insanely excited to announce that Repeater have organised a book launch as part of the ICA’s ‘Talks & Learning’ programme which will feature myself in conversation with Kodwo Eshun.
Much of the start of the book takes place in Kodwo’s kitchen and he was so important to us as we tried to make sense of Mark’s death, creating a space within his Geopoetics seminar for thinking with and through Mark’s work and death over the months that followed.
Wakes at Kodwo’s house turned into the Fisher-Function public lecture series and then later he gave the first annual Mark Fisher Memorial Lecture. (The photograph on the book’s cover features friends of mine walking home from Peckham following the first memorial lecture after party.) Now, two years later, I’m really looking forward to sharing this event with Kodwo to reflect on the two years the book documents and all that has gone on around us since.
Note: This event is ticketed. You can buy tickets over on the ICA’s website here.
