Gilles Deleuze’s Philosophy in the Contemporary Political Context
2010.XII.02-03
On December 2-3, an international conference “Gilles Deleuze’s Philosophy in the Contemporary Political Context” will take place in the reading room of the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius. Remembering the prophecy of Michel Foucault that perhaps one day our century will be called Deleuzian, the conference will analyze contemporary political life and manifestations of the political in social and creative milieus. The two-day conference will consist of four sessions, during which problems of political activism will be addressed, creative alternatives for global capitalism will be discussed and the relationship between philosophy, politics and art will be analyzed. Twelve experts in the philosophy of Deleuze and Felix Guattari from various European countries will participate in the conference. Some of them are known to apply the theories of the above-mentioned thinkers not only in the academic field but also within the social and political milieus.
