I spent the past week in Belfast participating in a boutique festival hosted by my friend Peter Rollins called Wake. It's been running for six years now and draws about 80 or so people from all over the map. The theme this year was Apocalypse-the cataclysmic event that brings upheaval to the existing order of things and open up the possibility of a new horizon.
I gave a couple of talks and hosted a screening and discussion around Catherine Malabou's theory of destructive plasticity and a documentary called, One More Time With Feeling, which explores how the singer/songwriter, Nick Cave and his family and friends dealt with the tragedy of the loss of one of Cave's fifteen-year old twin sons. I'll be posting the talks over the next couple of weeks on my Patreon site: www.patreon.com/barrytaylor
