Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 89 mins

Occupation politics, while new in the current neoliberal economic regime, has long been a staple of political action. The lecture will consider the political practice and theory of ‘occupation’ since 1968, and review its effects with reference to the spatial, political and theoretical activism of Foucault, Deleuze, Lefebvre, Althusser, Badiou, Balibar (the theorists of ‘68), with respect to the temporal theories of traditional Marxism.

Anthony Vidler is a historian and critic, trained in architecture at Cambridge, who has taught at Princeton, Cornell, UCLA, and most recently at Cooper Union and Brown University. His recent books are James Frazer Stirling and Histories of the Immediate Present

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
