Slavoj Žižek at the Southbank Centre

October 7, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

Slavoj Žižek is today’s most controversial public intellectual.

His work traverses the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, theology, history and political theory.

It takes in film, popular culture, and literature to provide acute analyses of the complexities of contemporary ideology as well as a serious and sophisticated examination of the world around us.

In this special event, he tackles the future of liberty, freedom and democracy: what do they mean in a world post-Arab Spring, WikiLeaks, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden?

Join Slavoj Žižek as he delivers his take on the world today with the high-octane energy that characterizes his work, in the company of Paul Mason, Economics editor at Channel 4.

This performance will be British Sign Language interpreted and Speech to Text transcribed. Suitable seats have been reserved for customers wishing to use these services. To access these seats, please email rather than booking through the website.
