"Critical Praxis: Alienation & the Work of Resistance..."

Tuesdays 5:30, room 111

The seminar will reflect upon the theory & practice of avantgarde movements from 1916 to the present day (Dada, Surrealism, Lettrism, Situationism, Fluxus... etc.), as responses to the experience of alienation characteristic of industrial societies from the end of the 18th century -- & which forms a major line of critique from Hegel, Marx & Freud, to Breton, Brecht, Kojève, Lacan, Debord, Althusser, Derrida & Cixous, among others.

Participants are then given the opportunity to put their theoretical knowledge into praxis through forms of public intervention & by constructing text/art installations at "The Solution” Galery in Žižkov.
