In English

For the first time, the Radical Philosophy Conference takes places in Germany and discusses topics such as Acceleration & the New, Animalities, Artistic Strike, the Essay-Film, Organization, Pedagogization, Queer Theory & Geopolitics, and Secrecy & Surveillance.

Is the current acceleration of social life in capitalist societies qualitatively different from the futuristic ‘speed’ of modernity? Does the ‘art strike’ still represent a viable political response to art’s affirmative complicity with the market? What are the effects of the new forms of surveillance on our political condition? Is queer theory ‘merely cultural’? Is today’s ‘pedagogical turn’ a capitulation to a generalized ‘pedagogization’ or a site of a potential resistance? How does the film-essay work to communicate philosophy? What happens when biopolitics takes human-animal relations as its focus? What alternatives are there in matters of collective empowerment to the political forms of the 20th century? These topics and questions are discussed in a sequence of panels, bringing together international speakers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds.
