THE END OF CAPITALISM? REVOLUTION AND REPETITION

Tate Britain. Auditorium
Tuesday, 8 December 2009, 18.30–20.00

Kojin Karatani: ‘The End of Capitalism? Revolution and Repetition’
Capitalism may be on the verge of extinction, but it will not end by itself, because states do everything possible to prolong its life. Setting out from Marx’s discussion of repetition the The 18th Brumaire, this talk will outline a series of historical forms of repetition – repetition in the state, in capital and in revolution – and a new periodization of stages of capitalist development based on modes of exchange, in order to propose a new definition of the historical present.
Kojin Karatani is the author of Architecture as Metaphor (1995) and Transcritique: On Kant and Marx (2003) and a founder of the New Associationist Movement in Japan.

Peter Osborne, Professor of Modern European Philosophy, Middlesex University and an editor of the journal Radical Philosophy will act as Chair and Respondent.

The Auditorium, Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1
£8 each talk (£6 concessions) or £25 for all 4 (£20 concessions)
