Meetings on THE OTHERS - Expulsion of the Other

Meetings on THE OTHERS - Expulsion of the Other

There is no translation available.

On behalf of Klaudiusz Ślusarczyk and NeMA MA students, the MA New Media Arts department would like to invite you to the next lecture as part of our meetings on the theme of The Others.

In the latter part of the 20th century, Jacques Lacan once remarked that he sees no other source of brotherhood other than through segregation. A striking comment on ideas of that which brings us together in relation to those we mark as being other. Us and them, is this the only way that we join together as communities? Is there another possibility? Are we able to embrace otherness in today’s polarised society? In this series of lectures, we will scrutinise the role of the others, those through whom we come together but also through whom we may, in fact, learn more about ourselves.

Our next meeting will be on:

Expulsion of the Other - the philosophy of Byung-Chul Han / with Marcin Cecko
