Conversation with
Geoffroy de Lagasnerie

According to Geoffroy de Lagasnerie, any intellectual life – insofar as it is lead publicly – is invariably political. In the spirit of our series in theory, we will investigate the vicissitudes of his own biographico-theoretical trajectories, between philosophy, sociology, art, and activism. How are subjects of theoretical practice constituted? What is the place of critique? Is the trio a new type of conceptual persona? How and where can we truly think (and act) together? And does it remain possible to think in a bad world?

Geoffroy de Lagasnerie is currently professor of philosophy and sociology at the École nationale supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy.

Event in collaboration with internationales literaturfestival berlin.
