Feminism & New Materialism

9. April 2016 | 22.00
Debate Feminism & New Materialism with Jules Sturm and Katharina D. Martin | Wijsgerig Festival Drift

Considering that there seems to be a third party to any conceptual binary, a disruption to any normality, an exception to any universality: how to be respectful rather than prejudiced, how to be pleasantly surprised rather than shocked at the eccentric? This is tonight’s conundrum. Jules Sturm and Katharina D. Martin shall be talking about how a political philosophy of egalitarian and emancipatory contestation, feminism, aims at explicating and thereby politicizing what makes up the content of our experiences: bodies – matter – materials.
