Love is an event ignited by the distance between two polarities

A program of Adrian Blackwell: Model for a Public Space [knot]
As parallel, yet separate, discourses, what common features do love and politics share? What is produced in the mismatch, or missed appointment, between the singular desires of individuals and communities? How are both intimate and political relations inevitably tied to the complex interactions between two bodies? This conversation will focus on the productive contradictions, antagonisms, and antinomies that underlie relations of politics and love.
Featuring Abbas Akhavan, Mike Hoolboom, Luis Jacob, Michelle Jacques, Christie Pearson and Etienne Turpin
