Rachel Kushner in conversation with Nina Power, LRB

August 22, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

| £7

Rachel Kushner’s new novel The Flamethrowers takes place in the art world of the 1970s, and explores themes of gender, terrorism and authenticity. Naomi Fry wrote in the LRB ‘Kushner isn’t only a novelist. She is also a regular contributor of sharp criticism to such free-thinking American publications as Artforum, and however good her stories and sparkling her prose, she has other aims in her novel too. Its subject is inequality – economic, social, sexual – but the art world, with its attendant performances, is always there to complicate it.’ She will be in conversation about The Flamethrowers and its themes with Nina Power, senior lecturer in philosophy at Roehampton University and the author of One-Dimensional Woman.
