BOOK LAUNCH AND CONVERSATION—NEW YORK

Citizens of the Cosmos

Citizens of the Cosmos examines the artist Anton Vidokle’s films and the Cosmist philosophy underpinning them. It features essays and conversations with Vidokle by seminal contemporary theorists, curators, and artists: Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Keti Chukhrov, Liam Gillick, Boris Groys, Daniel Muzyczuk, Miguel Amado and Georgia Perkins, Elizabeth Povinelli, and Raqs Media Collective. This is the first book to survey Vidokle’s Cosmism-related filmic output, begun in 2014, and includes full scripts from the films.

For the book’s launch at the Swiss Institute, Vidokle will screen one of his films, Autotrofia (2020), and will be joined afterwards in conversation with Elizabeth Povinelli and Liam Gillick.

TALK—LONDON

Tainted Love

Join Alex Coles alongside special guests Hannah Catherine Jones, Fraser Muggeridge and Savvy to discuss the key ideas from his latest book, Tainted Love.

Titled after Soft Cell’s version of the original 1965 Gloria Jones track, Tainted Love is the first book-length inquiry into the subject of the twisted romantic ballad, giving a sense of both its history and contemporary currency. Sometimes extreme, this twist to the conventional romantic ballad spans across gender and generational boundaries to subvert our understanding of both the genre’s function and its behavior. Each chapter of Tainted Love takes a deep dive into a single twisted ballad, examining both its inner workings—lyrics, melody, and vocal approach—and its broader cultural resonance.
