A list of IRL events I’ve been involved with in some capacity.
On Sunday 24th March 2019, I gave a talk about the relationship between accelerationism and patchwork, reaffirming lines of flight in the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack in New Zealand earlier that month. This was the fourth edition of #WYRDPATCHWORKSHOP, an event organised byDiffractions Collective at Punctum in Prague.
Acid Communism: An Introduction to “Egress”
On Monday 12th November 2018, I was invited to lead a session of Laura Grace Ford and Dan Taylor’s Acid Communism reading group at Somerset House Studios.
I spoke about the aesthetic implications of the weird and the wyrd in relation to patchwork (via Skype) at this event held at Punctum in Prague on Saturday 22nd September 2018. The event was live-streamed on Justin Murphy’s YouTube channel.

The Fisher-Function: ‘Flatline Constructs’
A reading group and discussion which took place at Goldsmiths, University of London, on Thursday 1st June 2017.
K’Exchange: ‘Monastic Vampirism’
Taking Giorgio Agamben’s monasticism (The Highest Poverty, 2013) and Nick Land’s vampirism (The Thirst for Annihilation, 1992) and holding them precariously in orbit of each other amongst a constellation of other mad philosophers, this talk will seek a new madness for our time; a speculative madness; a productive madness.
Recorded at Goldsmiths, University of London, on Thursday 23rd February 2017.
