I’m very excited to announce the first in a series of conversations, furthering some of the discussions and themes introduced by Mark Fisher in his final lectures.
Mark Fisher’s final lectures, on the topic of postcapitalist desire, are life-affirming and speculative. Their unfinished nature is tragic but Fisher was not alone in exploring the possible emergence of new worlds beyond our capitalist reality. In this series of conversations, Matt Colquhoun explores how Fisher’s concerns are shared by other writers and thinkers at work today.
In our first session, we will be joined by Will Stronge, co-author (with Helen Hester) of the forthcoming book Post-Work, to discuss the necessary steps needed to begin the transition to a post-work society, whilst also probing an issue that Fisher was particularly concerned with — not just the economic reality of such a transition but the cultural challenges that diminish our capacity to imagine that transition in the first place.
This event is free and will take place tonight, Monday 18th January 2021, starting at 7PM GMT. It will be livestreamed on Repeater Books’ YouTube channel.
