The seminar takes its cue somewhat from Badiou’s recently published Images du temps présent and Deleuze’s proposal
of a thought without an image. The seminar is organised in 3 sessions: Images of Power/Power without an Image (focusing on Hobbes, sovereignty and the visual); Images of Capital/Capital without an Image (building on Alberto Toscano’s recently finished book Cartographies of the Absolute) and Images of Revolution/ Revolution without an Image (reconsidering the significance of a revolutionary aesthetic and revolutionary iconoclasm in the present moment).
Alberto Toscano is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is the author of Fanaticism: On the Uses of an Idea (2010), The Theatre of Production (2006), and of the forthcoming Cartographies of the Absolute (with Jeff Kinkle). He sits on the editorial board of Historical Materialism, and edits The Italian List for Seagull Books.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.
Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
