In Desire x Politics: Solve for x, where x is the variable prised open between the bodies of politics and the bodies of desire.
Over the past eight months, a nine-person working group led by Yaniya Lee and Fan Wu has been navigating the problematics of desire x politics, reading and writing to unravel this equation’s many entanglements. In this SESSION, members of the group share new writing composed over the course of their study and lead exploratory discussions through a participatory workshop. Participants will read, write and perform together an interrogation of desire x politics that identifies how these two modes converge, diverge, enable and interrupt each other.
For registration, RSVP to Aamna Muzaffar at aamna@mercerunion.org, or by calling 416.536.1519
