Persistent Difficulty: Language, Possibility and Autonomy – Vortrag

Marie Leonard

Persistent Difficulty is a reading and lecture series that focuses on the relationship between philosophy, aesthetics, and politics.

Part-lecture, part-performance, part-reading series, the first in the Persistent Difficulty series is commissioned and hosted by Berlin University of the Arts. It aims to overturn what a traditional lecture looks and feels like in front of and with the public.

The first in the series focuses on language, possibility and autonomy. By establishing the relationship between resistance and imagination, life as it is lived and emancipatory futures, language as it is written and then embodied, Persistent Difficulty: Language, Possibility and Autonomy brings the large question of the relationship between philosophy, art and politics into the broader context.
